Waymo is planning to have a self-driving taxi service on the road by the end of the year in Arizona. GM’s Cruise has its sights on an autonomous taxi hitting San Francisco streets in 2019. In Dubai, a self-driving taxi service is already in testing.
Now, Intel’s Mobileye autonomous vehicle tech division plans to roll out a similar autonomous car service in Israel early next year.
Announced Monday, Intel is building out an electric vehicle fleet with Champion Motors and the Volkswagen Group that will use Mobileye’s self-driving software to autonomously shuttle passengers around Israel.
