Mobileye will trial robotaxis in Israel next year
Intel's Mobileye expects to launch a trial of robotaxis next year in Israel.
Intel Ceo Officer Bob Swan rode a Mobileye autonomous car through Jerusalem congestion Sunday.
«The most impressive thing is to just to see how far they have come in each one of the successive drives that I have gone on over the last two years» said Swan, adding that it was his third ride in a self-driving car.
Intel announced last October that Mobileye, along with Volkswagen Group and Champion Motor Group, is working to commercialize a robotaxi service. Swan said Sunday the plan is to deploy the self-driving ride-hailing service in Israel first, then expand globally.
Software development is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
After Sunday's test Swan said: «I will say I am more encouraged by what I experienced today than I was a couple of years ago».
