The Mobileye Chauffeur technology platform will be integrated into the Polestar 4 electric vehicle
Polestar and Mobileye are to collaborate to bring autonomous technology to the Polestar 4 with potential for other vehicles, using the Mobileye Chauffeur AV platform.
Mobileye Chauffeur will add an extra layer of on-demand convenience to Polestar’s performance electric vehicles that are primarily designed for driver engagement.
Polestar 4, which goes on sale globally in 2024, lays the foundation for this technology by featuring a Mobileye SuperVision-based advanced driver assistance system from the start.
At launch, Chauffeur will offer hands-off and eyes-off, point-to-point autonomous driving on major roads, as well as eyes-on automated driving for other environments, in identified operational design domains.
Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, comments: “We are very keen to push innovation in our performance electric vehicles together with Mobileye. We know that driving yourself is not always fun and exciting – this technology means our customers could enable autonomous driving when they want, making all future journeys enjoyable.”
Both SuperVision and Chauffeur feature Mobileye’s EyeQ systems-on-chip, RSS-based driving policy, 360-degree surround camera system and REM-powered Mobileye Roadbook map. Chauffeur upgrades SuperVision with the latest EyeQ6 system-on-chip along with next-generation active radar and lidar sensors, providing the additional sensing layer needed for eyes-off autonomous operation – demonstrating how existing eyes-on systems build a bridge to fully autonomous driving.
