High-Speed Testing

Prior to Mobileye’s efforts, self-driving car tests in Germany typically took place in closed environments or simulated roads. The Intel division already has a similar program operating in Israel and has been testing autonomous cars there for several years. That likely helped it gain approval in Germany.

Acquisitions Leading the Way

Part of Mobileye’s new ability to test its self-driving cars is thanks to a recent acquisition. Intel purchased a mobility startup called Moovit back in May for $900 million. It now appears that the acquisition is proving its worth.
