Intel grabs computer vision expert Mobileye
After having missed the starting shot to the digital revolution in the car, chip giant Intel is now catching up at high speed. The company has announced to acquire Mobileye, an Israel-based expert for computer vision and machine learning - and the application of these technologies in solutions for automated driving.

Intel has offered an acquisition price of about 14 billion euros, almost one third higher than Mobileye’s valuation at the stock exchange per last Friday. The transaction is expected to close within nine months.
