After recently completing their purchase of Mobileye, the Israeli self-driving vehicle sensor company, Intel announced that they would build a fleet of 100 vehicles to perform data collection and safety testing of the technology. These cars will be based in the United States, Israel, and parts of Europe and this means that Intel joins the likes of Waymo (Alphabet/Google) and GM who also have self-driving fleets.

Intel has been making noises about self-driving car technology for a little while now, but they are stepping up their involvement after the completion of their purchase of the Israeli self-driving sensor and computing company Mobileye. What better way to show your commitment to self-driving vehicle technology than by building your own fleet, 100 vehicles in total to be exact.

The primary functions of this fleet will be to use the data collected to improve Mobileye technology and to perform safety testing in the United States, Israel, and parts of Europe. But the fleet will also be used to showcase the sensor performance and software experience since Intel hopes other autonomous driving companies will use these with their platforms. After all, Intel is all about supplying the industry not building the end product themselves.

The first cars in Intel's fleet are expected to start appearing later in 2017 and will join companies such as Waymo (Alphabet/Google) and GM who also have self-driving vehicle fleets on the road.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
