EINDHOVEN, Netherlands and JERUSALEM, 29 December 2016 - HERE and Mobileye, both
leaders in providing technologies for intelligent vehicles, today announced
plans for a strategic partnership that links their respective autonomous driving
technologies into an enhanced industry-leading offering for automakers.

The two companies intend to pursue the following collaborative initiatives:

* Integration of Mobileye''s Roadbook(TM) with HERE HD Live Map
Mobileye''s Roadbook(TM) will be integrated as a data layer in HERE HD Live
Map, HERE''s real-time cloud service for partially, highly and fully
automated vehicles. Roadbook(TM) information will provide an important
additional layer of real-time contextual awareness by gathering landmark and
roadway information to assist in making a vehicle more aware of - and better
able to react to - its surroundings, as well as allow for more accurate
vehicle positioning on the road.

* Mobileye''s utilization of the HERE Open Location Platform
Mobileye will utilize the HERE Open Location Platform for the ingestion and
processing of raw sensor and observation data (Road Segment Data, RSD), and
the creation and dynamic maintenance of its Roadbook(TM) products. The HERE
Open Location Platform is the next generation of HERE''s location platform,
developed to support the ingestion, enrichment and processing of real-time
location-based data for multiple industries, including the automotive

* HERE to utilize raw sensor and observation data from Mobileye

HERE will utilize RSD, as well as the Global Roadbook(TM) (GLRB), collected
and aggregated from certain vehicle brands equipped with Mobileye technology
to support change detection and the maintenance of HERE HD Live Map.
Detecting changes in the real world and adjusting the map accordingly is
critically important for automated vehicles to plan better driving
strategies. With more sensor data available from car manufacturers equipped
with Mobileye''s REM(TM) technology, the HERE HD Live Map will be updated
even more quickly, achieving very short Time to Reflect Reality.

"We are building a state-of-the-art global HD map that is becoming the standard
for autonomous driving and other IoT applications that need precise location-
based information and services," said Edzard Overbeek, CEO of HERE. "We are
rapidly expanding this capability and I am very pleased that we can accelerate
that work with Mobileye, a strategic partner which shares our view of where the
automotive and other industries are going."

"High-definition mapping is a key enabler for autonomous driving. Mobileye''s
REM(TM) technology, enabling crowd-sourced data extraction, together with the
backend processing of the Roadbook(TM) combined with HERE HD Live Map is
critical to ensure dynamic, near real-time updates," said Professor Amnon
Shashua, Chairman and CTO of Mobileye. "We are pleased to work with HERE to
create a "world HD-map" standard, leveraging the combined fleet size of certain
vehicle brands initially, with the objective of eventually launching an industry
wide initiative."

In parallel, the two companies also intend to explore other potential
opportunities where their products and services are complementary to further
support automotive companies in advancing their autonomous driving and mobility
strategies generally.
