Mobility tech “growing pains”
Mobility tech “growing pains”

Introducing new technologies into the automotive ecosystem is a complicated task. With the overriding importance of the safety of occupants and pedestrians on the line, these technologies must be heavily tested, vetted by automakers, and approved by government agencies before being put into widespread use.


Intel's Mobileye deal marks an inflection point in automotive electronics
Intel's Mobileye deal marks an inflection point in automotive electronics

In summer 2016, when BMW, Intel, and Mobileye joined hands to bring fully autonomous cars to roads by 2021, the collaboration raised a few questions. For instance, what is Intel doing in this alliance without an automotive chip? And why would Mobileye share its renowned machine-vision algorithm with a chipmaker?
