Intel To Buy Mobileye
With those companies under its belt, MobilEye's sensor technology, and its own microprocessor expertise, Intel could be poised to offer a fully-integrated autonomous driving solution to carmakers.
Intel's auto-driving group will be headquartered in Israel and led by Amnon Shashua, Mobileye's co-founder, chairman and chief technology officer. The Israeli company now utilizes STM chips for the products it provides auto manufacturers with. "This transaction extends Intel's strategy to invest in data-intensive market opportunities that build on the company's strengths in computing and connectivity from the cloud, through the network, to the device", Intel noted in a statement announcing the deal.
The deal is the world's largest acquisition of a company that focuses only on the field of automated driving systems.
