Automated Driving Efforts
Intel on Monday announced it would acquire Mobileye in a $15.3 billion acquisition, deepening the chip manufacturer's efforts around connected cars.
"I believe that today’s announcement puts us in the driver’s seat to achieve our vision of creating the technology foundation on which the future of autonomous driving will be built," said CEO Brian Krzanich in an email to employees. Intel isn't alone in its efforts to double down on connected cars – others, like Qualcomm and Nvidia, have been striving to get their chips in cars by shelling out money for research and blockbuster acquisitions.
Here are seven ways Intel has built up its automated driving portfolio over the past year to better compete with chip competitors in the connected car market.
