S-Cam line includes Mobileye technology
TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. has launched production of camera systems in the US and is investing in its electronics facility in Marshall, Illinois, to support its video camera business worldwide.
Gentex Corporation is supplying auto-dimming mirrors with a new, camera-based driver-assist system for the 2013 Ford Explorer. The Gentex driver-assist system uses a multi-function camera combined with algorithmic decision-making to perform Automatic High-Beam Control, Lane Keeping and Driver Alert. The system was developed in conjunction with Mobileye®.
STMicroelectronics and Mobileye N.V. announced that the two companies are co-developing the next generation of their System-on-Chip processor for the vision-based driver-assistance segment of the automotive market.
Mobileye said Nissan showrooms in China will propose Nissan’s TEANA model (Nissan Maxima in North America) equipped with Mobileye technology. Nissan TEANA “Eagle Eye” will be offered all over China and will enable customers to get their new Nissan vehicle equipped with Mobileye’s C2-270 Collision Prevention System.
MIPS Technologies, Inc. said Mobileye has licensed MIPS’ multi-threaded multiprocessing MIPS32®1004K™Coherent Processing System (CPS). Mobileye will incorporate the 1004K CPS in its next generation EyeQ™ vision-based SoC for use in driver assistance systems. Mobileye uses multi-threaded MIPS32 34K™cores in its current generation EyeQ2™SoC. Development of the third generation SoC will begin immediately.
Mobileye N.V. and Visteon Corporation will jointly develop strategies and technologies to control next-generation smart headlamp systems. The firms plans to feed information from Mobileye camera systems to Visteon headlamp systems in ways that expand the potential of each technology; for example, switching automatically between high and low headlight beams.
The firms said their lighting strategies will be enabled by camera processing abilities that include
vehicle detection, on-coming and preceding light source analysis, and range estimations. The technologies define optimal lighting profiles for drivers to maximize viewing ranges under most
Mobileye core vision processing capabilities include lane departure warning systems, vehicle detection, high beam assist, and traffic sign recognition. The firm’s technology has been deployed by automakers including Volvo (S80, XC70, and V70), BMW (5-Series, 6-Series, and 7-Series), and General Motors (Buick Lucerne, and Cadillac DTS and STS). The Visteon system will analyze Mobileye’s data and convert it to useful information for its headlamp systems to add higher levels of intelligence and functionality.
