HANNOVER, GERMANY. Wabco Holdings and Mobileye N.V. announced they are joining forces to develop solutions for commercial vehicles that leverage emergency braking ADAS functionalities and Mobileye’s REM technology during IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016.
The solutions will combine Mobileye’s vision system and mapping technology with the control and actuation technologies from Wabco’s portfolio of electronic braking, stability and emergency braking systems in combination with capability for active steering control, the companies explained.
“Our partnership with industry-leading Mobileye exemplifies our continued technology leadership in advanced driver assistance systems, and it supports Wabco’s pole position to create a ‘cocoon of safety’ around the commercial vehicle through 360-degree sensor detection,” said Jacques Esculier, Wabco chairman and CEO. “Mobileye provides major innovation for passenger cars, allowing us to bring this level of intelligence to support commercial vehicles.”
“We are excited to expand WABCO’s strategy to offer differentiated safety, efficiency and digital connectivity solutions that mobilize vehicle intelligence for real-time status insights and critical systems control, assisting drivers with higher levels of driving automation,” said Esculier.
“Our cooperation with Wabco, a world leader in safety enabling technologies for commercial vehicles, adds value to our systems by providing full actuation of the brakes and by leveraging Wabco’s sophistication in advanced braking systems for commercial vehicles,” said Ziv Aviram, Mobileye co-founder, president and CEO. “The inclusion of our innovative REM technology into the Wabco-Mobileye system further enhances its capabilities and creates a system with a high degree of safety for the benefit of commercial vehicle manufacturers and operators.”
