Chinese automaker Geely Auto Group unveiled its new premium electric vehicle (EV), the Zero Concept, which will feature advanced safety tech from Mobileye.
The new EV was designed by Lynk & Co, a Geely Auto Group brand, and was unveiled at Beijing Auto Show. The Zero Concept will feature Lynk & Co’s CoPilot solution powered by Mobileye SuperVision surround-view advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) with over-the-air update capabilities.
Utilizing Mobileye’s SuperVision system based on its leading EyeQ5 system-on-chip (SoCs) alongside Geely’s accelerated production capabilities will enable Geely Auto Group to deliver a new suite of advanced driver-assist features to consumers beginning in fall 2021.
“Lynk & Co CoPilot powered by Mobileye’s SuperVision system will bring the most advanced vision-based driving-assistance technology to the production version of the Lynk & Co Zero Concept, making it soon to be one of the world’s leading premium vehicles with the most robust driver-assist features,” said An Conghui, Geely Auto Group chief executive officer.
The collaboration between Geely and Mobileye comes amid a growing demand for electric vehicles in China and beyond, as well as increased interest in safer, cleaner transportation solutions, according to Mobileye.
Lynk & Co CoPilot, powered by Mobileye’s SuperVision system, is supported by the use of surround-view cameras and other driving policy and navigation technologies powered by two EyeQ5 SoCs.
In addition to enabling high-level driver assistance in the Zero Concept EV over several years, Geely and Mobileye announced a high-volume ADAS agreement to equip a variety of Geely Auto Group makes and models with Mobileye vision-sensing technology.
The long-term agreement will see multiple Geely Auto Group brands and vehicles outfitted with Mobileye-powered ADAS features such as automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist.
