Schaeffler and Mobileye, an Intel company
and the leading provider of automated driving solutions, have decided on
Matthias Zink, CEO, Automotive Technologies at Schaeffler AG, due to the
technological change, rapid regulatory, increasing urbanization, and growing
social awareness of mobility, the need for alternative and novel concepts like
autonomous people or logistics movers has increased.
rolling chassis is combined with the Mobileye Drive self-driving system so that
a new and flexible platform can be developed for self-driving shuttles and
other vehicle products at automation level 4. According to Johann Jungwirth,
Vice President, Mobility-as-a-Service, Mobileye, this new platform is equipped
with Mobileye Drive that will help in the deployment of autonomous shuttles and
other driverless transportation solutions that will start in the next few
AV technology will be combined with Schaeffler's rolling chassis, the companies will
be able to offer flexible, adaptable, and autonomous vehicle platforms so that
automotive safety standards can be met with the needful redundancies. This will
further help in the rapid scaling of autonomous transport solutions from 2023.
Chassis from Schaeffler is a scalable and flexible platform for a driverless
mobility solution that will help in the transport of people, goods, and for
special applications like mobile charging or pop-up stores on wheels. The corner module allows a steering angle of
up to 90 degrees. The series of production and scalability also includes the
wheel hub motor and the wheel suspension that also includes air suspension
which makes it possible to lower the vehicle for entry.
Drive™ self-driving system is an AV solution that ensures safety through two
core concepts which are: Mobileye’s formal Responsibility-Sensitive Safety
model and a perception system. Here the first one is for the safety of the
system’s decision-making and the second one features true Redundancy™ whereby
two independent subsystems together enable robust perception. This self-driving
system can also be used without geographical limitations.
