Intel's self-driving cars testing in Jerusalem
Intel and its Mobileye backup have begun testing self-driving vehicles in Jerusalem.
The armada incorporates 100 autos, and every ha 12 cameras for a 360-degree see. Eight of the cameras are for long-run survey and four for stopping. The organizations will include a layer of LIDAR and radar in the following couple of weeks.
The organization intends to send the armada in the US and different areas in the "coming months."
Intel would like to make them drive vehicles out and about by 2021 in organization with vehicle producers.
Intel shares are up 0.2% to $54.74.
Intel and Mobileye landed on Jerusalem as its test city to prove its tech can work “in any geography and under all conditions.” Shashua also noted Jerusalem is “notorious for aggressive driving” and doesn’t always have clearly marked roads. Jerusalem, he said, also has complicated merging situations and people walking outside of crosswalks.
“You can’t have an autonomous car traveling at an overly cautious speed, congesting traffic or potentially causing an accident,” he wrote. “You must drive assertively and make quick decisions like a local driver.”
