The new software, designed for Mobileye’s EyeQ platform, has been certified for use in all 27 EU countries as well as
The Mobileye ISA system is expected to be integrated by a major global auto group into two vehicle brands for models going on sale in
“This is a major accomplishment for Mobileye, because we’ve proven to the industry not only that achieving GSR-compatible vision-only ISA is possible, but also that it performs better than traditional map-based solutions,” said Dr.
The certified solution, resulting from more than two years of work building on Mobileye’s two decades of experience in computer vision and machine learning, is the industry’s first of its kind. Current alternatives rely on a combination of cameras and low-resolution maps to meet the EU standards, a solution that typically brings higher cost with complexity and integration efforts, while providing less reliable performance.
Mobileye has developed several cutting-edge technologies that upgraded the legacy traffic sign recognition technology to meet GSR requirements, including:
- Traffic sign relevancy technology that identifies whether a speed sign is relevant to a specific lane,
- Signature-based classification that loads the ‘signature’ of a new traffic sign to the vehicle, even for new signs that were introduced after the vehicle’s manufacture,
- OCR-based city entrance identification for European-style signs,
- Advanced search engines that allow finding examples of rare signs in Mobileye’s huge clips database and integrate them into the system, and
- Road-type classifier that can work out the right speed, even when traffic signs are missing, by using different cues in the scene to detect the road type.
“Mobileye’s 400-petabyte database of driving footage, gathered from around the world, enables us to rapidly meet the growing requirements of automotive safety regulators with new software designed for our existing driver-assist platforms,” said Hayon. “After successfully surpassing GSR ISA standards during stringent testing, we look forward to collaborating with automakers to implement this lifesaving technology in
Speeding contributes to one third of fatal vehicle crashes in EU Member States according to the
Six independent labs across five different European countries have tested and confirmed that Mobileye’s ISA software meets or exceeds the EU's required standards, with additional testing and certification underway. In the future, Mobileye will continue advancing the system to ensure new sign recognition over the next 14 years per GSR certification requirements.
