Intel Corp CEO Brian Krzanich stated on Monday 2 million vehicles from BMW, Nissan Motor and Volkswagen AG would use its unit Mobileye’s autonomous vehicle tech to crowdsource information for developing maps that allow autonomous driving.
The world’s largest chipmaker purchased Israeli firm Mobileye in 2017 to take on companies such as Qualcomm Inc and Nvidia Corp and tap the fast-growing market of driverless vehicles.
Intel will also tie up with SAIC Motor, which is going to use Mobileye technology to establish vehicles in China, the chipmaker stated.
Krzanich also stated Intel had not received any information of consumer data being compromised until now after the company validated last week that the security issues reported by researchers in its extensively used microprocessors could enable hackers to steal sensitive details from computers, phones and other devices.
Security researchers had revealed two security defects exposing vulnerability of almost every modern computing device consisting of chips from Intel, Advanced Micro Devices and ARM Holdings.
