Mobileye CEO Shashua Predicts Surge in Autonomous Vehicles Within 2 Years as Tech Advances

Six years ago, the future of autonomous vehicles seemed bright. Automakers and technology companies were on the brink of launching thousands of autonomous robotaxis onto the streets to transport passengers without a human driver. However, a series of setbacks and accidents derailed these plans, raising questions about the viability and safety of autonomous driving technology.

One such incident was when an Uber autonomous test vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in Arizona. Similarly, Tesla’s partially automated systems faced multiple problems, leading to recalls and concerns about their safety. General Motors’ Cruise robotaxis also encountered difficulties during testing in San Francisco.

Despite these setbacks, Amnon Shashua, co-founder and CEO of Mobileye, remains optimistic about the future of autonomous vehicles. Mobileye is an Israeli public company majority owned by Intel that has been at the forefront of developing partially automated driver assistance systems and fully autonomous technology. According to Shashua, technology is advancing rapidly, with systems that allow drivers to take their eyes off the road and fully autonomous vehicles expected to arrive within two years.

Mobileye’s SuperVision system, which is already installed in approximately 200,000 vehicles in China and will soon expand to Europe and the United States, employs 11 cameras around the car to provide a hands-free but eyes-on driving experience. The company is also working on a highway surveillance system called Chauffeur that incorporates forward-facing lidar and imaging radars. Additionally, Mobileye has partnered with Volkswagen on deploying thousands of fully autonomous vehicles by 2026.

Shashua emphasizes that as technology advances toward fully autonomous driving, security becomes paramount. With advanced sensor technologies like front-facing lidar (laser) and imaging radars combined with multiple cameras around the car, accidents can become exceedingly rare.

While discussing Tesla’s Autopilot and “full self-driving” capabilities, Shashua acknowledges their technical prowess but stresses the importance of additional sensors for redundancy in order to enhance safety.

As we move closer towards a future with more autonomous vehicles on our roads than ever before according to Hindustan Timesit is clear that significant progress has been made in developing this groundbreaking technology. Nonetheless, challenges remain regarding regulatory frameworks for self-driving cars as well as addressing public perception concerns surrounding their safety features.

With ongoing advancements in sensor technologies and partnerships between tech companies and automakers like Mobileye’s collaboration with Volkswagen on deploying thousands of fully autonomous vehicles by 2026 – it seems inevitable that we are moving towards an era where self-driving cars will become increasingly prevalent on our roads within just two years from now!
