Mobileye & Nissan Sign Memorandum Of Understanding To Integrate Road Experience Management Technology For Autonomous Driving Into Nissan Fleets

The autonomous driving technologies company Mobileye NV has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Nissan with the intent of integrating Mobileye’s new Road Experience Management technology into the Japanese company’s fleets.

The move means that Nissan has now joined the likes of General Motors (GM) and Volkswagen in possessing a partnership with Mobileye, concerning the company’s new Road Experience Management (REM) technology.

“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 Professor Amnon Shashua, co-founder, chairman and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) 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.”

The Mobileye REM technology provides real-time data usable for precise localization, in addition to high-definition lane data, both of which can be used to support fully autonomous driving technologies. The technology is based upon the company’s EyeQ processing platforms — which “extracts landmarks and roadway information at extremely low bandwidths, approximately 10kb per kilometer of driving.”

Mobileye products are currently integrated, or slated to be integrated, into car models from 25 different auto manufacturers.
