Polestar Partners with Mobileye for Autonomous Driving

Polestar has chosen Mobileye to integrate its Chauffeur™ technology platform into the forthcoming Polestar 4 model, setting the stage for advanced autonomous capabilities. This collaboration, supported by the manufacturing and integration expertise of ECARX, has the potential to expand to other vehicles within the Polestar range.

Why It Matters

The decision to incorporate Mobileye’s technology underscores Polestar’s commitment to not only producing sustainable, beautifully-designed vehicles but also to being at the forefront of technological innovation. With the inclusion of Mobileye Chauffeur, Polestar aims to provide an elevated level of on-demand convenience to its electric vehicles, which are renowned for their dynamic performance and driver engagement.

Key Points

  • Polestar 4, now available in China and set for a global release in 2024, will already feature the advanced driver assistance system based on Mobileye’s SuperVision™.
  • Initially, the Chauffeur system will provide autonomous highway driving, allowing drivers to be hands-free and eyes-free. Furthermore, there will be eyes-on automated driving capabilities for other scenarios, within specific operational design domains.
  • Both the SuperVision and Chauffeur technologies utilize Mobileye’s EyeQ™ systems-on-chip, the RSS™-based driving policy, a 360-degree camera setup, and the REM™-powered Mobileye Roadbook™ map. Notably, Chauffeur also integrates the latest EyeQ6 system-on-chip and incorporates next-gen active radar and lidar sensors, bolstering its autonomous functionalities.

Bottom Line

Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, “This partnership with Mobileye aligns with our vision to innovate. Driving isn’t always about the thrill; sometimes, it’s about convenience and enjoyment. With this technology, our customers can choose autonomous driving at their discretion.” Prof. Amnon Shashua, Mobileye’s President and CEO, echoed this sentiment, highlighting the safer, more accessible autonomous driving experience that Mobileye Chauffeur aims to provide. Further specifics about the integration process will be shared as the production launch approaches.
