Mobileye 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 its new REM™ 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,” stated Prof. Amnon Shashua, co-founder, chairman and Chief Technology Officer of Mobileye.
Mobileye REM technology shall provide real-time data for precise localization 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 kilometer of driving.
