German expert organization TUV Sud has issued a subsidiary of Intel, called Mobileye, a permit to test Autonomous vehicles in Germany, on public roads.
Israeli company Mobileye was acquired by it giant Intel in 2017 for an unprecedented sphere of automated assistance to drivers, the amount of 15.3 billion U.S. dollars. The manufacturer of microprocessors has high hopes for self-driving cars and I’m sure that is not lost. The success of the Mobileye seem impressive. Over the past year, the company introduced on the roads of France, Japan, Korea and Israel a few of unmanned vehicles. Run the test in Germany was the “icing on the cake”, because it is the heart of the most advanced automotive industry in the world.
Received by the company Mobileye permit gives the right to release self-driving cars on all German roads from cities to villages and on highways with a speed limit of 130 km/h. However, at the initial stage, the vehicles will attend the operator in an emergency can take control of the vehicle. But this does not detract from the success of the Mobileye in Germany, because so far self-driving cars in this country have only been tested in special landfills.
In addition, until the end of 2020 the company plans to launch large-scale testing of autopilot on public roads in other European countries. All this promises to lead to the fact that after 4 years the driverless car on the road will become commonplace.
