Mobileye‘s vision-only Intelligent Speed Assist (ISA) system is gaining traction among leading automakers, particularly in Europe. Recently, a prominent EU-based automotive manufacturer has decided to incorporate Mobileye’s ISA technology into its vehicles destined for the Turkish market. This decision comes after the system demonstrated exceptional capability in recognizing traffic signs and adjusting to dynamic road conditions such as toll booths. The system’s adherence to, and occasional surpassing of, the European Union General Vehicle Safety Regulation (GSR) standards reinforces its reliability and effectiveness.

Key Highlights:

  • Mobileye’s ISA solution surpasses EU GSR standards: Independent tests in five European countries confirm compliance and performance.
  • Cost-effective, mapless technology: The vision-only system eliminates the need for expensive third-party mapping services.
  • Broad certification and adaptability: Certified for use across the EU, Israel, Norway, Switzerland, and Turkey; capable of future updates without hardware changes.

The European Union’s GSR, which mandates that all new passenger vehicles sold from July 2024 meet specific ISA requirements, underscores the importance of such technologies. Mobileye’s system, based on the advanced EyeQ™4 platform, meets these requirements across multiple jurisdictions without necessitating additional hardware, presenting a significant cost-saving opportunity for manufacturers.

Reducing Costs Without Compromising Safety

Mobileye’s ISA system not only ensures compliance with safety standards but also reduces manufacturing costs by eliminating the dependency on third-party mapping and GPS services. Its capability to be updated via software alone allows for continual adaptation to new regulations and signages without physical alterations or extensive testing. This “futureproof” approach is designed to sustain the technology for over a decade after a vehicle’s launch, ensuring long-term compliance and safety with minimal additional investment.

Beyond standard compliance, Mobileye’s ISA also enhances driver assistance with features such as detecting conditional signs and recognizing approaching toll booths, thereby increasing overall road safety and driver convenience.

In comparison to traditional ISA systems, which often rely on a mix of technologies including traffic sign recognition (TSR), mapping databases, and GPS, Mobileye’s vision-only approach stands out. It avoids the pitfalls of outdated or inaccurate third-party data, offering a more reliable and real-time response to road conditions and regulatory changes.

As Mobileye continues to integrate its technology into more vehicles, its approach remains clear: “built for safety – built for scale”. This strategy not only supports automakers in meeting regulatory demands but also plays a crucial role in shaping a safer automotive future, proving that cutting costs does not have to mean compromising on safety.
