NIO announces collaboration with Mobileye to bring level 4 autonomous driving vehicles in China
NIO announced a strategic collaboration with Mobileye, an Intel company, on the development of highly automated and autonomous vehicles for consumer markets in China.
As part of the planned cooperation, NIO will engineer and manufacture a self-driving system designed by Mobileye, building on Mobileye’s level-4 AV kit.
According to NIO this self-driving system will be the first of its kind, targeting consumer autonomy and engineered for automotive qualification standards, quality, cost, and scale.
NIO will mass-produce the system for Mobileye and also integrate the technology into its electric vehicle lines for consumer markets and for Mobileye’s driverless ride-hailing services.
This variant will target initial release in China, with plans to subsequently expand into other global markets.
