Intel’s Mobileye Launches SDK for Driver-Assistance Systems

Mobileye EyeQ SDK400x275

July 5, 2022

Mobileye, an Intel company, has announced the launch of the EyeQ Kit, a software development kit (SDK) for the EyeQ system-on-chip that provides driver-assistance and future autonomous technologies for automakers. Leveraging the power of the upcoming EyeQ6 High and EyeQ Ultra processors, the EyeQ Kit lets automakers utilize Mobileye’s core technology while deploying their own differentiated code and human-machine interface tools.

“EyeQ Kit allows our customers to benefit from the best of both worlds – Mobileye’s proven and validated core technologies, along with their own expertise in delivering unique driver experiences and interfaces,” said Amnon Shashua, president and CEO of Mobileye. “As more core functions of vehicles are defined in software, we know our customers will want the flexibility and capacity they need to differentiate and define their brands through code.”

Through the software and hardware, automakers can access computer vision, REM crowdsourced mapping, and RSS-based driving policies, Mobileye said. Customers can further leverage the SOC to augment advanced driver functions with a look and feel that is unique to their brands. In addition, as visual demands for interaction and communication between drivers and vehicles grows more complex, the EyeQ Kit gives automakers a new path to tailor critical information flows, supporting features such as surround visualization, automated lane-keeping, and road-sign recognition through advanced augmented reality displays.

The company said the EyeQ Kit aims to reduce development costs, accelerate time to market and enable hardware vendor flexibility for the full development cycle – from conception to deployment and performance tuning.

“Mobileye’s core technologies of computer vision, driving policy, REM and RSS are driven by purpose-built SoC’s allowing for scale and efficiency,” said Shashua. “Automakers can now build on top of Mobileye’s core technologies while benefiting from our diverse set of accelerators purpose-built for ADAS and AV. Automakers can rely on the EyeQ Kit and EyeQ processor family to bring a technologically advanced vision for their brands to life, quickly and efficiently.”

The company said EyeQ Kit has already been deployed with one major global automaker for their future vehicle programs.
