Intel’s Mobileye Self-Driving Vehicle Systems To Go Into 2 Million BMW, Nissan, & Volkswagen Cars Over The Near Term
January 12th, 2018 by
In order to crowdsource data for self-driving car maps, Intel’s Mobileye tech will be outfitted in around 2 million vehicles from BMW, Nissan, and Volkswagen over the near term, an exec at the company has revealed.

To serve as a reminder and explanation here, the tech giant Intel acquired the Israel-based self-driving vehicle systems firm Mobileye in 2017 for a large chunk of change (a record acquisition for the sector and for an Israeli startup). Following that acquisition, the company has been putting its considerable clout to use to broaden the use of Mobileye tech.
Nvidia and Qualcomm, as a reminder, are both involved in the self-driving vehicle tech development sector as well. Seemingly, all of the companies mentioned above count on the sector and associated markets to grow rapidly over the coming years.

Reuters provides more: “Intel will also tie up with SAIC Motor Corp Ltd, which will use Mobileye technology to develop cars in China, the chipmaker said. Krzanich also said Intel had not received any information of customer data being compromised so far after the company confirmed last week that the security issues reported by researchers in its widely used microprocessors could allow hackers to steal sensitive information from computers, phones and other devices.”
It’ll be very interesting to see how that ongoing concern or flaw affects adoption of the Intel/Mobileye self-driving car tech. Until a few weeks ago, Intel’s name had been associated with perhaps unparalleled prestige … perhaps not so any more. Or did the vast majority of the public miss the news or pass over it without much thought?
