Mobileye

Mobileye is an Israeli technology company that develops vision-based advanced-assisting systems (ADAS) providing warnings for collision prevention and mitigation. Mobileye NV headquarters and main R & D center is located in Jerusalem operating under the company name Mobileye Vision Technology Ltd. [3] The company also has sales and marketing offices in Jericho, New York ; Shanghai, China ; Tokyo, Japan and Düsseldorf, Germany .

In March 2017, Intel announced that they had agreed to a US $ 15.3 billion takeover of Mobileye. [4] [1] [1] [1] [2] [2] [2] [2] [2] The Dead Man’s Death. [5]

History

Mobileye NV was founded in 1999 by Amnon Shashua (a researcher of the Hebrew University ), when he evolved his academic research into a technical solution for a vision system that could detect vehicles using algorithms on a processor. [6] After receiving a license to use the technology which was owned by Yissum it was possible to incorporate the company. Together with Ziv Aviram, he set up the company’s R & D headquarters in Jerusalem, Israel.

At first, the company developed algorithms, and a processor chip called the EyeQ chip. All of Mobileye’s proprietary image processing algorithms run on the EyeQ chip. After years of testing, the chip and software algorithms Began to be sold as trading products to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers. The company’s first customers were automotive manufacturers such as BMW, General Motors and Volvo. These companies include electronics suppliers in the United States, Canada and the United States. [7]

In 2006, Mobileye set up an aftermarket department, which sells finished products manufactured by Mobileye at their Philippines factory, IMI. The aftermarket products are sold to an international network of distributors on all continents who sell the products to trucks and buses, to car dealerships, and to car accessories shops. [8]

In August 2015, Tesla Motors announced that it would be able to implement a self-drive solution, which would be incorporated into Model S cars from August 2015. [9] After the first deadly crash of a self-driving model S with active Autopilot public est devenu in June 2016, Mobileye Issued a statement icts That technology will not be ble to Recognize a crossing trailer (qui was the causes of the accident) up to 2018. [10] in July 2016, Mobileye annoncé the end of ict partnership With Tesla after the EyeQ3. [11] [12] EyeQ is used in over 15 million vehicles as of 2017. [13]

In January 2017, Mobileye, BMW and Intel announced that they were developing a fleet of autonomous vehicles that would be on the road in the second half of 2017. [14] The companies plan to develop autonomous vehicles for the consumer market by 2021. [15] In March 2017, Intel announced their latest deals to buy Mobileye for $ 15.3 billion. [16]

Technologies

The firm’s technology is based on the use of optical algorithms, which have a combination of visual detection, radar, and laser scanning. The firm’s vehicle detection algorithms recognize motorized vehicles as well as motorcycles and trucks, in day and night conditions. Citation needed ] The firm’s version of the vehicle is based on a single camera mounted in the rear view mirror, unlike the usual approach of using radars, laser scanners or in some cases stereo-cameras. [32]

In 2011 the OEM production of vision-only forward collision warning system (NHTSA compliant) on multiple BMW, GM and Opel vehicles. Citation needed ]

Lane departure warning systems are in-vehicle electronic systems that monitor the position of a vehicle within a roadway lane and warn a driver if the vehicle deviates or is about to deviate outside the lane. Mobileye’s version was launched in multiple production platforms through 2007 and 2008 with GM , BMW and Volvo . Citation needed ]

The firm’s pedestrian detection technology is based on the use of mono cameras only, using pattern recognition and classification with image processing and optic flow analysis. Both static and moving pedestrians can be detected to a range of 30m using VGA resolution imagers. Citation needed ] The firm announced in 2008 that by mid-2010 they would launch a world’s first application of full emergency braking for collision mitigation for pedestrians. Mobileye announced in May 2009 as part of the next generation Volvo S60 vehicle. [33] [ unreliable source? ]

Since 2008, BMW 7-Series cars are equipped with the Mobileye traffic sign recognition , developed in cooperation with automotive supplier Continental AG . [34]
