Intel’s automotive business Mobileye wins contract for 8 million self-driving vehicles

Intel has scored a big win with its automotive business Mobileye. A contract has been signed to make Mobileye the supplier of self-driving technologies to eight million cars for a European automaker. Although the terms of the deal are confidential, as is the name of the automaker, this is a large step forward towards commercially available autonomous vehicles.

As manufacturers continue to implement semi-autonomous features into their vehicles such as advanced collision avoidance, automatic braking, and radar-based cruise control, the movement towards full self-driving capabilities is pushing ahead.
