ZF and Mobileye announced they are cooperating to launch the S-Cam4 family of advanced cameras in 2018. The two companies are working together to provide the camera technology to a major automotive OEM.
The ZF S-Cam4 camera family includes a single lens, mono-camera designed to help meet updated test protocols such as EuroNCAP pedestrian triggered automatic emergency braking (AEB), including a crossing bicycle AEB test. The camera family also includes a premium three lens TriCam4 version to support advanced semi-automated driving functions, adding a telephoto lens for improved long-distance sensing capabilities, and a fish-eye lens for improved short-range sensing with a wider field of view.
“The combination of ZF and Mobileye demonstrates that advanced camera technology is yielding great benefits to drivers and society,” said Aine Denari, Senior Vice President, Advanced Driver Assist Systems at ZF.
“This program represents another step in Mobileye’s journey with our longtime partner ZF to provide ADAS features that meet the most stringent advanced safety standards as well as deliver valuable semi-automated functionality to the consumer,” said Erez Dagan, Senior Vice President, Advanced Development and Strategy at Mobileye.
