Innovation: Road Experience Management system
First customer: Volkswagen
Mobileye has developed a mapmaking process for advanced driver-assistance systems and autonomous vehicles by crowdsourcing road experiences from 40 million vehicles worldwide.
The Road Experience Management system gathers data from vehicles equipped with Mobileye’s collision-avoidance front-facing cameras. As the vehicles travel, their cameras anonymously harvest and aggregate road data into digital high-definition maps that are accurate down to 10 centimeters — a big improvement over GPS.
The Mobileye maps provide information about the road ahead, helping to safely guide a vehicle in challenging weather and infrastructure conditions.
The systems record information on lane conditions, driveable paths through complex intersections, and static scenes such as road signs, traffic lights and on-road markings. The maps also incorporate traffic events for fleet management and improved automated driving functionality.
