Veoneer Inc., the world’s largest pure-play company focused on advanced driving assistance systems and automated driving, and its software joint venture Zenuity, have been selected by a global, Asia-based automaker to supply an active safety system based on its next generation Mono Vision and Radar System. This is the eighth customer for Veoneer’s in-house developed vision system.
Veoneer’s scalable system has been developed to meet Euro NCAP 5-star safety rating as well as providing several driver assistance features such as highway assist, lane centering control, stop and go adaptative cruise control, automatic emergency braking, traffic sign recognition and automated high beam control. These are the main build blocks for higher levels of automated driving.
Veoneer’s camera centric system architecture is based on in-house computer vision algorithms complimented by radar-based perception to cover the full spectrum required by Euro NCAP. Hosted in the camera is Zenuity’s software, fusing information from the camera and radar enabling high reliability, safety and availability of the system. In addition, innovative features such as road surface profile and advanced path predication will be deployed to enhance the user experience.
Starting in 2022, Veoneer expects to begin delivering the system to this customer.
“We are truly honored to be selected by yet another global automaker to develop and build a state-of-the-art active safety system,” said Jan Carlson, Veoneer’s chairman, president and CEO. “This is an important proof-point of how our world-class solutions support collaborative driving and create trust in mobility.”
