Driverless-Car Outlook Shifts as Intel Takes Over Mobileye
Mr. Shashua said publicly that Mobileye was unhappy with the way Tesla was using its technology.
With the $15.3 billion deal, which closed Tuesday, Intel gains instant credibility because Mobileye already supplies technology to most major automakers
and is a leader in areas like digital mapping and sensors.
And last year a public split arose between Mobileye
and Tesla after an Ohio man was killed in Florida while driving a Tesla Model S with Autopilot engaged.
But Intel is betting that it can reshape the competitive landscape with its acquisition of Mobileye, which makes cameras, sensors
and software that enable cars to detect what is ahead.
“Intel now has a very big footprint in all parts of the autonomous vehicle, the brains, the sensors, the information
side, the mapping,” said Mike Ramsey, a Gartner analyst who tracks the development of self-driving cars.
