Intel to test Level 4 autonomous cars after buying Mobileye

Intel to build over 100 self-driving test vehicles following acquisition of Mobileye

The american giant of the computer chips Intel announced on Wednesday its intention to test a fleet of 100 autonomous cars, starting this year, thanks to the acquisition of the israeli company Mobileye, which specializes in collision warning systems. What better way to show your commitment to self-driving vehicle technology than by building your own fleet, 100 vehicles in total to be exact. These cars will also be rated as "level 4" according to the NHTSA classification of autonomous vehicles.

"Our goal is to develop autonomous vehicle technology that can be deployed anywhere, which means we need to test and train the vehicles in varying locations", said soon-to-be senior vice president of Intel Amnon Shashua in a press release. As Intel puts it, "geographic diversity is very important as different regions have very diverse driving styles as well as different road conditions and signage".

More than 15 million vehicles already use Mobileye's technology.

Olympics : LA city to get more oversight in competition agreement
Los Angeles appears poised to take another step toward the 2028 Olympics , despite questions about future costs. The City Council is scheduled to make its decision Friday, a week before that deadline.

Intel, which has not indicated with any automobile manufacturer it is associated to this diversification, will test a fleet of different cars based on the expertise of Mobileye in detecting, mapping and tracking at a distance.

Intel will be using different brands and vehicle types for its tests to help demonstrate the "agnostic nature" of this technology.

"With Mobileye, Intel emerges as a leader in creating the technology foundation that the automotive industry needs for an autonomous future", said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich in a statement. We want to enable automakers to deliver driverless cars faster while reducing costs; data we collect will save our customers significant costs'.
