The latest release at the CES 2021 could see autonomous vehicles gain a massive boost in popularity thanks to Mobileye’s mission of creating affordable access to AVs throughout the world.
Mobileye’s approach solves the scale challenge from both a technology and business perspective. Getting the technology down to an affordable cost in line with the market for future AVs is crucial to enabling global proliferation.
Mobileye’s solution starts with the inexpensive camera as the primary sensor combined with a secondary, truly redundant sensing system enabling safety-critical performance that is at least three orders of magnitude safer than humans.
Using True Redundancy™, Mobileye can validate this level of performance faster and at a lower cost than those who are doing so with a fused system.
The company envisions a future with AVs achieving enhanced radio- and light-based detection-and-ranging sensing, which is key to further raising the bar for road safety. Mobileye and Intel are introducing solutions that will innovatively deliver such advanced capabilities in radar and lidar for AVs while optimizing computing- and cost-efficiencies.
Mobileye’s unique and unprecedented technology can now map the world automatically, with nearly 8 million kilometers tracked daily and nearly 1 billion kilometers completed to date. This mapping process differs from other approaches in its attention to semantic details crucial to an AV’s ability to understand and contextualize its environment.
