Jerusalem is known for its challenging and aggressive traffic conditions, which is why Intel and Mobileye selected it for the first phase of the Intel and Mobileye 100-car self-driving car test.
The project’s Professor Amnon Shashua said the test is aimed at:
- Demonstrating the power of the Mobileye technology.
- Proving the Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (RSS) model increases safety.
- Integrating learnings into products and customer projects.
He said their fleet of self-driving cars will expand to the US and other regions in the coming months.
“While our AV fleet is not the first on the road, it represents a novel approach that challenges conventional wisdom in multiple areas,” said Shashua.
Intel and Mobileye’s technology
Shashua said their system is designed to meet important safety goals and economic scalability from the start, which is a key differentiator for Intel and Mobileye’s platform.
According to Shashua, their self-driving cars get from point A to point B faster, cheaper, and 1,000-time safer than a human driver.
