Intel's Mobileye set 100 fleets for autonomous vehicle tests

Intel has shown rapid growth in the autonomous car market after buying a Jerusalem-based company, Mobileye, earlier this year for US$15 billion for 84 percent of the shares. The giant company that is famous for producing the Pentium and iX series processors has set up 100 vehicles to conduct autonomous car test technology sessions at level 4.

Intel acquired Mobileye successfully designing collision avoidance technology on autonomous vehicles that utilize artificial view sensors and backend systems that can detect pedestrians, speed limit marks, road markings and more accurately.

Mobileye builds autonomous grade 4 vehicles using a diverse range of car brands and vehicle types to demonstrate the technological agnostic nature and place tests in the United States, Israel and Europe which will begin later this year.

"With Mobileye, Intel emerges as a leader in creating the technology foundation that the automotive industry needs for an autonomous future," said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich.

"It’s an exciting engineering challenge and a huge growth opportunity for Intel. Even more exciting is the potential for autonomous cars to transform industries, improve society and save millions of lives," Krzanich said.

The acquisition further strengthens Intel in the computing and connectivity sectors with cloud technology through a network connected to the device. Intel estimates that the vehicle, data, and service system market opportunities will be worth US$70 billion by 2030.

Mobileye technology is linked to Intel assets including artificial intelligence, data centers, localization, and more. The company is determined to position itself to provide an autonomous driving service that connects cars to the cloud and is expected to transform the autonomous car market.

"Leading in autonomous driving technology requires a combination of innovative proprietary software products and versatile open-system hardware platforms that enable customers and partners to customize solutions," said CTO and co-founder of Mobileye Amnon Shashua.

"For the first time, the auto industry has a single partner with deep expertise and a cultural legacy in both areas. Mobileye is very excited to begin this new chapter," said Shashua.

Lee also said the EU and ASEAN had agreed to restart the process of establishing a free trade agreement between the two blocs. The EU and ASEAN launched talks towards a pact in 2007 but ignored the process two years later as the EU voted to negotiate bilaterally with each country.


"As coordinators, we look forward to forming a framework to identify where areas where we have the potential to make a deal," Lee said.

"Working on a deal may take longer than the end of the year. But if we can identify where the big opportunities are, our trade-offs, then I hope we will have better success," Lee said.

"One of the things we expect is that European nations are able to manage their soci…

Rolls-Royce plans for flying taxi service

Tinuku - Rolls-Royce Holdings plc has designed a propulsion system for flying taxi and is starting search for partners to help develop a project it hopes could take to the skies as soon as early next decade. British jet engine maker said on Sunday it had drawn up plans for an electric vertical take-off and landing (EVTOL) vehicle which could carry to five people at speeds of up 250 mph for approximately 500 miles.

The company joins a variety of companies racing to develop flying taxis, which could revolutionize the way people travel. Aviation and technology leaders are working to make electric-powered flying taxis a reality, including Airbus, U.S. ride- sharing firm Uber and a range of start-ups including one backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, called Kitty Hawk.


Rolls-Royce’s design will be showcased in digital form at the Farnborough Airshow, which starts on Monday. The company is looking for an airframer and a partner to provide aspects of the electrical system to help commerci…

Britain announced its first launch site for the space market

Tinuku - UK on Monday ran an important leap for the construction of the first vertical launch space launch site. The proposed space port at Sutherland in the north of Scotland has been awarded US$3.3 million in funding by the government-owned UK Space Agency to develop a ground-breaking launch site.

Government Business Secretary Greg Clark Monday launched the start of a Great British Space Age that will see vertically-launched space rockets and satellites take off from the new spaceport. UK Space Agency said it selected the Sutherland site because Scotland is the best place in Britain to reach highly sought-after satellite orbits with vertically launched rockets.


The initial funding will go to Scotland's Highlands and Islands Enterprise agency to develop the Sutherland site which will use a combination of proven and innovative rocket technologies to pave the way for a world-leading spaceflight market.

The UK Space Agency is also making available a new 2.65 million U.S. dollar fund…
