Nissan Joins VW and BMW on Mobileye Mapping for Autonomous Driving

Nissan Motor Co. joined German automakers BMW AG and Volkswagen AG in allowing the driving data collected by Mobileye NV chips and sensors to be used in a collective map to enable autonomous driving.

The Japanese automaker has agreed to share information that will be merged with other carmakers’ data to create precise maps, Mobileye said in a statement Tuesday. The pact deepens an existing relationship between Nissan and Mobileye, with the two already working together for the ProPilot driver-assistance system that debuted last year.
