November 30, 2016 | Giant chip maker Intel has joined Delphi Automotive and Israeli company Mobileye on their quest to manufacture a driverless car by 2019. The companies will present at CES 2017, to be held in Las Vegas in January. With Mobileye contributing its cutting-edge autonomous driving technologies, and Intel (which employs some 10,000 people in Israel) contributing the tremendous computing power needed for the future car, there’s no doubt Israel is playing a significant role in the emerging self-driving car industry. Mobileye is already collaborating with BMW and Intel on an autonomous car. Mobileye, which develops vision-based driver assistance systems that help prevent collisions, was founded in 1999 by Prof. Amnon Shashua and Ziv Aviram.
