Veoneer will supply Subaru with the new generation EyeSight system for the redesigned Levorg (try spelling the nameplate backwards).

The technology supplier will begin producing systems for the Japan market starting later this year.

Subaru chose Veoneer due to its experience in stereo vision systems and opto-mechanical design capabilities. This business was included in Veoneer’s previously announced backlog. The new generation EyeSight hardware is a variant of Veoneer’s fourth generation stereo vision system, re-engineered to meet Subaru’s original specification.

Subaru first introduced EyeSight in the US in 2012, and claims it has become a leading system in the automotive industry.

The new generation EyeSight has two cameras mounted on a wide baseline design allowing for better detection of pedestrians and vehicles in intersections and on curved roadways.  The system doubles the field of view and substantially increases the resolution over previous generations. The system also has enhanced optical robustness and mechanical rigidity which improves detection performance while retaining a compact design package.

Integrated in the system package is a Xilinx Zynq XA processor hosting algorithms developed by Subaru.

Jan Carlson, chairman, president and CEO, said: “Veoneer is leading the industry in stereo vision systems and is honored to custom design a version that is at the heart of Subaru’s ADAS solutions.”
