Mobileye’s Supervision advanced driver assistance technology will be used in future production models.

Porsche has partnered with Mobileye, the autonomous driving division spun out of Intel in 2022, for the supply of level-two-plus advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Porsche says it intends to use Mobileye’s Supervision technology as the basis for a range of ADAS functions in future production cars.

Described as Mobileye’s most advanced driver assistance system currently in production, Supervision is claimed to allow hands-off driving in combination with a navigation function, provide autonomous lane-changing capability and allow automated overtaking of slower cars on multi-lane roads.

At the centre of Mobileye’s flagship ADAS system is a series of sensors, including seven cameras, four parking cameras, four short-range radars and a long-range radar.

The Israeli company claimed that more than 60,000 vehicles have already been equipped with various levels of Supervision functionality and said it co-operates with more than 50 car makers worldwide on various ADAS solutions.

“Mobileye is one of the world’s leading providers of automated driving functions. This technology will help us forge ahead with our strategy of modern, sporty luxury,” said Porsche CEO Oliver Blume.

The partnership announcement comes one day after Porsche’s parent company, the Volkswagen Group, made public sweeping changes to the board of its automotive software division, Cariad.

From 1 June, Cariad will be headed by current Bentley production director Peter Bosch.

Cariad already co-operates with Mobileye on various ADAS technologies. It also has existing ADAS partnerships with Bosch, Qualcomm and China’s Horizon Robotics.
