Geely-owned Polestar and Mobileye are to cooperate to make the upcoming Polestar 4 the first production car to feature Mobileye’s Chauffeur autonomous driving technology. It will be integrated by ECARX and with potential application in future Polestar vehicles.

Polestar 4, which goes on sale in China this year and globally in 2024, lays the foundation for this technology by featuring a Mobileye SuperVision-based ADAS from the start. First deliveries in China are expected before the end of 2023.

When launched in the coming years, the companies claim Chauffeur will offer eyes-off, point-to-point autonomous driving on highways, as well as eyes-on automated driving for other environments.

Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, said: “I am really happy with how Polestar 4’s production readiness is advancing. A collaboration with Mobileye can significantly push innovation in our Polestar 4 electric performance SUV coupé. We know that driving yourself is not always fun and exciting – this technology means our customers could enable autonomous driving when they want, making all future journeys enjoyable.”

Polestar 4 is positioned between Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 in terms of size and price.

AI set to be the face of the digital revolution shaping the automotive sector

The automotive sector is undergoing a digital transformation fuelled by changing global supply-chain dynamics, tighter market competition, and rising inflation. AI is a key part of this digital revolution. Focus is directed toward driver assistance features for safety and hazard detection and greater automation of many vehicle processes and functions. Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), facial recognition, and motion tracking will be vital for developing incockpit safety features such as early driver fatigue detection.
