Intel's automotive business Mobileye wins contract for 8 million self-driving vehicles

Israel-based Mobileye secured a deal to outfit 8 million cars with driver assistance technology for an undisclosed automaker in Europe

Erez Dagan, senior vice-president for advanced development and strategy at Intel's Israel-based Mobileye branch, wouldn't disclose which European automaker placed the order, or outline the financial terms of the deal. Mashable reached out to Intel for clarification but did not hear back immediately. The two companies had a spat and Tesla terminated its deal with Mobileye.

Mobileye expects its EyeQ5 platform to arrive with support for fully autonomous driving by 2021. Nvidia, at the end of past year, was poised to become the dominant manufacturer.

Even though the automaker that signed the deal with Mobileye remains a mystery, both Audi and BMW now are working with Mobileye and could be plausible partners. A contract of this magnitude is a clear signal to any other company designing self-driving chips: Step up your game.
