How digitization is affecting the automotive industry - Pat Gelsinger (Intel) introducing Mobileye
The automotive industry and digital technology - how exactly do they fit together? It's simple, says Pat Gelsinger, CEO of U.S. chipmaker Intel: "We're important to you, and you're important to us."
Gelsinger is convinced that "cars will become computers with wheels." But Europe's rapidly growing dependence on Asian chipmakers could become a problem down the road. Bottlenecks are already noticeable. "We are on the verge of losing control of one of the most important technologies for the economy and for national security," warns Gelsinger. Intel therefore wants to return Europe as a production location to its former strength.
But that's not all: With the world premiere of the new robotaxi from subsidiary Mobileye - exclusively on stage at the IAA Mobility - Intel CEO Gelsinger underscores that the group can be much more than just a chip manufacturer in the future. The keyword is: fully automated driving. Thanks to detailed explanations by Mobileye founder and CEO Amnon Shashua, even technology nerds get their money's worth.
Meanwhile, the vision is clearly outlined: In just a few years, the autonomously driving Mobileye cabs are to become part of the German car-sharing infrastructure. To make this ambitious project a reality, Mobileye is cooperating with one of the biggest players in the industry. Learn more about the background in the video.
