Intel just completed its $15.3 billion purchase of Mobileye, the Israeli tech company which specializes in autonomous auto technology, on Tuesday. "The fleet will eventually have more than 100 vehicles".
Once these cars are ready for the streets, they will be tested in the US, Europe and Israel to prove that this technology can work globally and not just in a few countries.
The testing in real-world conditions "provides immediate feedback and will accelerate delivery of technologies and solutions for highly and fully autonomous vehicles", said Mobileye co-founder Amnon Shashua, who is to run the unit for Intel. 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'.
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.
2 trains collide in Egypt, killing at least 25
Meanwhile, the railway authority has announced the formation of a technical committee to investigate the cause of the collision. Two trains collided outside the Egyptian city of Alexandria on Friday, killing at least 20 people, the health ministry said.
Intel, which has been expanding beyond its core of computer chipmaking, is keen for its technology to be an engine powering self-driving systems across the spectrum of vehicle makers.
Mr Shashua said: 'Neither company could do this alone.
Most major automakers and several other technology firms have been stepping up efforts on autonomous driving in recent years, contending these systems will eliminate the vast majority of road accidents. The company aims to create a complete "car to cloud" system.
