Mobileye Selects OBS IoT Services for Data Collection

Mobileye®, an Intel company and a leader in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), data collection and autonomous vehicle technology, has selected Orange Business Services (OBS) to provide IoT connectivity for its next generation product, Mobileye 8 Connect™.

Mobileye 8 Connect, which ‘sees’ the road ahead through a camera lens, 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.

At the same time, Mobileye 8 Connect will contribute to the creation of high definition maps, identifying static infrastructure, such as manhole covers, telephone poles and lamp posts, as well as dynamic (changing) data, including open parking spaces, traffic congestion and potholes. The on-board camera collects data for both autonomous vehicle mapping and to benefit cities and companies with the maintenance and mapping of existing infrastructure and utilities.

Mobileye chose the Orange Business Services IoT connectivity solution for its support in Europe, US and Asia. 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 GDPR compliant, the data collected being anonymous or anonymized, meaning there are also no inherent issues with data privacy.
