Germany’s ZF and Mobileye, an Intel company, have been chosen by Toyota to develop advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) for use in multiple vehicle platforms. 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’s EyeQ4 system-on-chip vision processing device will be combined with ZF’s Gen 21 mid-range radar technology to interpret the environment around the vehicles. Together, these technologies will help prevent and mitigate collisions and enable new levels of assisted lateral and longitudinal vehicle control.
This new relationship with Toyota significantly extends the reach of Mobileye and ZF safety technology. Professor Amnon Shashua, senior vice president of Intel and president and CEO of Mobileye, says, “Mobileye is delighted to be working with ZF to develop leading driver-assistance and safety technology for Toyota, the world’s largest automaker.”
“ZF looks forward to working closely with Toyota and Mobileye to develop advanced safety systems designed to meet advanced global safety regulations,” adds Christophe Marnat, executive vice president, Electronics and ADAS division at ZF.
