Mobileye has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Nissan aimed to integrate Mobileye's new Road Experience Management (REM) technology into Nissan's fleets. Nissan is the third large automaker to have partnered with Mobileye to integrate this technology in addition to General Motors and Volkswagen.
"Adding Nissan and Renault as part of the Renault-Nissan alliance, as a REM technology customer is another important step in the creation of a continuously updated high-definition data for drivable paths with precise-localization that will meet the requirement for full redundancy to enable safe autonomous driving including city autonomous driving," said Prof. Amnon Shashua, co-founder, chairman and Chief Technology Officer of Mobileye.
"Renault-Nissan alliance is one of the largest global automakers and a sizable OEM customer of Mobileye in both ADAS and autonomous driving. We view the endorsement of three of the world's largest global automakers as an acknowledgement of the importance of our innovative proprietary REM technology for autonomous driving."
Mobileye REM technology will provide real-time data for precise localisation and high-definition lane data that forms an important layer of information to support fully autonomous driving. The technology is based on software running on Mobileye's EyeQ processing platforms that extracts landmarks and roadway information at extremely low bandwidths, approximately 10kb per kilometre of driving.
