The global technology group Magna has developed a compact front camera system in a box in cooperation with Mobileye. According to the company, a large part of the vehicle range of a European premium manufacturer will be equipped with this new system. One advantage is that the front camera and the evaluating software are combined in one component.
Automated driving will become even safer in the future. In addition to the previously installed camera and radar systems, this requires the use of distance measurements with the precision of a laser system. Bosch is planning to start series development of the first automotive-compatible lidar (light detection and ranging). A laser-based distance meter supports driving functions according to SAE levels 3 to 5, in which the vehicle takes over the functions of the driver.
