Future models from Porsche will feature automatic assistance and navigation features from Mobileye’s dubbed “SuperVision” technology platform, the company announced on Tuesday.
After China’s Geely, this is the technology provider’s second sizable platform deal with a significant automotive business.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will collaborate with Mobileye in addition to using technology developed by Pittsburgh-based self-driving company Argo AI for self-driving shuttles and vans.
Last October, Volkswagen announced that its commercial vehicles subsidiary would look for a new cooperation after withdrawing from its planned investment in Argo AI.
By 2025, the company will work with Mobileye to achieve so-called “Level 4” autonomous driving, which is totally driverless but still allows people to request control.
Porsche, on the other hand, will use Mobileye’s “SuperVision” technology, which, on certain types of roads, enables drivers to remove their hands from the wheel and enables the car to follow a driver-specified navigation path, change lanes, and pass slower moving vehicles ahead.
Mobileye, an Israeli company that went public last October, already works with Volkswagen’s Cariad software division.
The unit is attempting to get back on track following years of delays and overspending. A day after overhauling its executive team, Cariad announced it will diversify its partnership base.
