Ford’s Co-Pilot360 driver assistance tech is about to get even better, since Ford has announced that it’s teamed up with Mobileye to improve its camera-based detection capabilities.
Mobileye is providing its EyeQ sensors to support collision avoidance tech features like lane-keep assist, automatic high beam headlamps, automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. Mobileye is also going to give Ford access to its vision processing software for use on its future vehicles.
“By customizing Mobileye’s excellent software and sensing technology, Ford’s great driver-assist features will continue to evolve and provide customers with confidence on the road throughout the life of their vehicles,” said Lisa Drake, chief operating officer, North America; vice president, Global Purchasing, Ford Motor Company.
Ford has also announced that it’s evaluating the use of Mobileye’s Roadbook system. Roadbook uses anonymized, crowd-sourced data from vehicle cameras to build a high-definition map that can be accessed by vehicles and used by driver-assist technology, like Ford’s upcoming Active Drive Assist.
