ZF and Mobileye have been chosen by Toyota to develop advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) for use in multiple vehicle platforms in the next few years, a press release stated. As part of the agreement, ZF will also supply its Gen 21 mid-range radar and be responsible for the integration of camera and radar in Toyota vehicles.
Mobileye and ZF help the world’s largest automakers through their approach to improving road safety with computer vision and machine learning-based sensing, localization, mapping, and best-in-class lateral vehicle control technology for systems such as lane keeping/lane centering. This new relationship with Toyota marks the first time that ZF and Mobileye have been nominated with their ADAS systems for Toyota and significantly extends the reach of Mobileye and ZF safety technology to enhance safety and driver convenience functions on world roadways.
The two companies will collaborate to produce advanced camera technology integrated with ZF radar technology to power key advanced driver-assistance platforms in Toyota vehicles. Mobileye’s EyeQ4 will be combined with ZF’s Gen 21 mid-range radar technology to precisely interpret the environment around Toyota vehicles. Together, these technologies will help prevent and mitigate collisions while yielding best-in-class lateral and longitudinal vehicle control.
Mobileye’s EyeQ4 applies enhanced computational capabilities with computer vision algorithms while rapidly processing information from the vehicle’s front-facing camera. With a variety of feature sets including vehicle detection from any angle and next-generation lane detection, EyeQ4 enables automakers to take a major step forward in autonomy, achieving the ability to support and enhance complicated driving tasks.
