The company's autonomous vehicle division, Mobileye, has signed a deal to provide self-driving technology to eight million cars for a "European automaker, "Reuters reports, citing a company official".
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. He noted, too, that the streets of Israel, where the company does most of its testing, were a particularly suitable site for the technology's development, since Mobileye wants its vehicles to drive like humans, and in Jerusalem the "driving culture is very assertive".
Intel has targeted 2021 to come up with the upgraded EyeQ5 chip that's designed for fully autonomous driving. As for providing brains and eyes for the automated systems, Nvidia and several other manufacturers of the chip and machine vision system are on the race with Intel's Mobileye.
The system that it's supplying to this unnamed vehicle manufacturer will power partial automation on a variety of its models.Читайте также: Giuliani is still confused about basic facts of Stormy Daniels hush payment
Mobileye, which was bought by Intel for $15.3 billion a year ago, says it controls more than 70 percent of the driver-assistance tech market.
"By the end of 2019, we expect over 100,000 Level 3 cars with Mobileye installed", said Amnon Shashua, Mobileye's chief executive.
The new system will be made available for a variety of the automaker's auto models that will have only partial automation - where the vehicle is self-driving, but needs the vigilance of a driver - as well as models integrating a more advanced system of conditional automation, the Reuters report said.
Mobileye already has a long list of customers using its technology for advanced driver aids, these include the likes of General Motors, Honda, BMW, Audi, Nissan, and more. In a test witnessed by Reuters reporters, these cars were able to travel through Jerusalem's streets in the middle of the day without driver interference. To prevent accidents and for the system to make the best driving decisions, it needs to process data from a combination of cameras, high-definition maps, radar and laser scanners called lidar, he said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
