Volkswagen and Mobileye are planning to implement a new navigation standard for autonomous driving starting in 2018.

Future Volkswagen models will use the camera-based map and localisation technology Road Experience Management™ (REM™) from Mobileye. Representatives of the two companies signed an agreement to this effect on February 10.

The wide-ranging cooperation was approved by Professor Amnon Shashua, Chairman and Chief Technology Officer of Mobileye, and Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen brand. Mobileye and Volkswagen are taking the next step towards autonomous driving. In the future, both will be jointly collecting data and utilising this for a new generation of highly intelligent maps.

The Israel-based company Mobileye is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of technologies for accident prevention and autonomous driving.
