Today Mobileye launched the EyeQ Kit, the first software development kit from Mobileye for its EyeQ system-on-chip to power driver-assistance and future autonomous technologies for vehicle makers. EyeQ Kit has already been deployed by one major global automaker for future vehicle plans.
EyeQ Kit will be used to access the powerful and highly power-efficient architecture of the upcoming EyeQ 6 High and EyeQ Ultra processors. EyeQ Kit will permit automakers to utilize Mobileye's proven core technology, while developing their own custom code and human-machine interface tools on the EyeQ platform:
"EyeQ Kit allows our customers to benefit from the best of both worlds — Mobileye's proven and validated core technologies, along with their own expertise in delivering unique driver experiences and interfaces. As more core functions of vehicles are defined in software, we know our customers will want the flexibility and capacity they need to differentiate and define their brands through code."
– Prof. Amnon Shashua, Mobileye president and chief executive officer
With EyeQ Kit, automakers will have access to Mobileye solutions, including computer vision, REM crowdsourced mapping, and RSS-based driving policy. Developed by hundreds of Mobileye engineers, EyeQ Kit draws on deep experience originating from Intel and Mobileye, with experts in compilers and development environments such as OpenCL standards.

The EyeQ processors balance high performance and power efficiency to deploy artificial intelligence at the edge for automotive applications:
"Previous generations of the EyeQ chip have been deployed in more than 100 million vehicles, with dozens of the world’s largest automakers using them to provide safety and driver-assistance features in hundreds of models worldwide."
