Ride-share fleets to map cities globally

March 1st, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Mobileye Aftermarket announced a series of partnerships and collaborations with ride-share fleets, municipalities and government administrations that will enable the mapping of city streets around the world, including London and New York, through the deployment of Mobileye 8 Connect in thousands of for-hire vehicles. Mobileye 8 Connect is the company’s collision avoidance system powered by the EyeQ4, and is capable of collecting dynamic data to make cities smarter and safer. Beginning early this year, fleets equipped with the system will gather information on city streets and infrastructure to create high-definition crowdsourced maps using the company’s Road Experience Management – an enabler of full autonomy. The system offers an increased level of safety, connectivity and data-collection capabilities to empower management of fleets and city assets on a larger scale. Requiring only a single camera sensor and the EyeQ processing system mounted on the windshield, the company’s products can be installed in vehicles to act as a third eye, identifying potentially dangerous situations and providing audio and visual alerts to assist the driver in preventing or mitigating a collision. The company offers systems customised for mass transit vehicles, government fleets and more.
