Mobileye chooses Orange Business Services for Data Collection

Intel Company Mobileye, a developer of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), data collection and autonomous vehicle technology, selected Orange Business Services to provide IoT connectivity for its next generation product „Mobileye 8 Connect“ in Europe, US and Asia. This product will provide municipalities and utilities with data they need to monitor infrastructure and plan for smarter cities. The system can also be of service to autonomous vehicles.

Mobileye 8 Connect uses a camera to ‘see’ the road ahead. The system is designed to be retrofitted into almost any existing vehicle. It provides drivers with the latest collision avoidance technology based on driver behavior, environmental data and advanced real-time alert data such as recognizing pedestrians in low light. This can help drivers – and organizations – lower accident rates and insurance premiums.
The system will also contribute to the creation of high definition maps, identifying static infrastructure like manhole covers, telephone poles and lamp posts, as well as dynamic data, including open parking spaces, traffic congestion and potholes. The onboard camera collects data for both autonomous vehicle mapping and to benefit cities and companies with the maintenance and mapping of existing infrastructure and utilities.
Orange Business Services’ more than 500 roaming agreements with local providers benefit Mobileye’s end customers by giving them seamless, local connectivity within and between countries. Mobileye 8 Connect is GDPR1 compliant, the data collected being anonymous or anonymized, meaning there are also no inherent issues with data privacy. Orange Business Services also provides a single, centralized SIM management platform for simplified reporting and customer support.

Mobileye will revolutionize the ADAS space, establishing itself as a critical player in the autonomous vehicle market. The Orange Business Services global IoT network is key to providing connectivity and data collection capabilities to empower the management of smart city assets, corporate fleets and ride sharing on a large scale. At the same time, this connectivity will enable us to push over-the-air software updates to the cars which allow us to add new features and improve its existing functionality,

said Lior Sethon, vice president and deputy general manager, Intelligent Mobility Solutions division at Mobileye.
Spain’s Directorate General of Transport plans to use the technology to enhance road safety and prepare for autonomous vehicles. The city of Dusseldorf in Germany has also used Mobileye 8 Connect to evaluate the city’s existing infrastructure and its suitability for autonomous and connected cars.
