Geely has signed a long-term supply agreement with Mobileye that will see group models fitted with Mobileye-powered ADAS systems.

Geely brand Lynk & Co’s new premium electric vehicle (EV) Zero Concept will also feature Lynk & Co.’s CoPilot solution powered by Mobileye’s SuperVision surround-view advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) with over-the-air (OTA) update capabilities.

Geely says that utilising Mobileye’s production-ready SuperVision system will enable Geely Auto Group to deliver a new suite of advanced driver assist features to consumers beginning in late 2021.

“We created the Lynk & Co brand in 2016 with the goal of providing a new premium experience for global consumers; to date we have delivered over 300,000 Lynk & Co units to customers. In the next phase of our growth we will collaborate with Mobileye to deliver an entirely new driving experience that is truly unmatched,” said Mr. An Conghui, Geely Auto Group chief executive officer. “Lynk & Co CoPilot powered by Mobileye’s SuperVision system will bring the most advanced vision-based driving assistance technology to the production version of the Lynk & Co Zero Concept, making it soon to be one of the world’s leading premium vehicles with the most robust driver assist features.”

“Our collaboration with Geely is a game-changer for the global automotive industry as it brings our industry-leading surround-vision technology to market in one of the most advanced driver assistance systems,” said Amnon Shashua. “We are thrilled to help Geely offer Lynk & Co drivers an exciting and advanced package of high-level driver aids and safety features, including point-to-point highway pilot and traffic-jam assist, all powered by Mobileye’s SuperVision surround-view driver assistance system and kept current with OTA updates.”

Geely says the future production-ready Zero Concept featuring Mobileye SuperVision driver assistance technology will present a new, groundbreaking option for consumers as China’s electric vehicle market expands rapidly.

Lynk & Co CoPilot, powered by Mobileye’s SuperVision system, is claimed to be an ‘ADAS-to-AV’ scalable system, supported by the ‘unprecedented use of surround view cameras and other driving policy and navigation technologies powered by two EyeQ5s, Mobileye’s most advanced system-on-a-chip (SoC)’.

Geely says that in addition to enabling high-level driver assistance in the production ready Zero Concept over several years, Geely and Mobileye announced a high-volume ADAS agreement to equip a variety of Geely Auto Group makes and models with Mobileye vision-sensing technology.

The long-term agreement will see multiple Geely Auto Group brands and vehicles outfitted with Mobileye-powered ADAS features such as automatic emergency braking (AEB) and lane keeping assist (LKA).
