Magna Electronics and Mobileye Partner to Develop New Driver Aids

Wednesday July 19, 2006

Magna Electronics and Mobileye Vision Technologies have announced that they will partner to develop some sate-of-the-art driver assistance technology for automotive applications in the near future. The agreement is to develop and then supply a combined automatic headlight control and lane departure warning system.

The system, which will mainly consist of Mobileye’s EyeQT vision image processor-on-a-chip, Magna Electronics’ advanced camera as well as the required software to manage the system; it will also combine the strengths of both companies involved in each field.

The major features of the system are as follows:

  • When driving at night, the system will automatically switch headlamps from high beams to low beams based on traffic conditions to improve night-time visibility.
  • The system will automatically provide audio or tactile alerts to warn against unintentional lane departures.
  • The automatic headlamp system and lane departure warning system will use the same camera and image processing system to analyze images and monitor road lane markings.
