Also at the conference, Amnon Shashua, the head of Intel’s Mobileye self-driving car computer unit, said “Mobileye has mapped out all of the roadways in Japan, using cameras that were already embedded in vehicles produced by Nissan Motor Co Ltd that come with Mobileye systems from the factory. Intel’s tech rivals such as Alphabet Inc and Apple Inc are gathering mapping data through special vehicles with cameras mounted on top of them”.
