Intel said Monday that it will provide an autonomous system for Silicon Valley startup Udelv, which plans to put it to use within two years. The company’s goal is to produce more than 35,000 driverless “transport vehicles”. The two companies stated in a joint statement that by 2028, “our agreement with Udelv is significant in terms of scale, scope, and rapid implementation schedule.”
Mobileye Executive Director Officer Amnon Shashua said: “COVID-19 has accelerated the demand for automated cargo delivery, and we are excited to work with Udelv to meet this demand in the near term,” said Daniel Laury, executive director of the startup. The complete Mobileye Drive system will allow Udelv to accelerate the production and deployment of transport vehicles. Udelv said on his website:
“The delivery vehicle combines autonomous driving technology with robotic technology to aid in the unloading of goods.” Without autonomy, the driver cannot be eliminated; the company said it has already done data in the United States. Thousands of automatic deliveries, with a payload of more than 800 pounds (363 kg).
E-commerce giant Amazon, Internet giant Google, and electric car maker Tesla are investing in systems that allow vehicles to be driven safely, and Intel recently said it would invest $ 20. It plans to invest 5 billion rupees (approximately 1,505.75 billion rupees) in Arizona, United States, to build two new factories to improve chip production plans in the United States and Europe.
The global shortage of chips makes countries and companies in these regions hesitate to reduce their dependence on semiconductors in Asian factories, and semiconductors are increasingly used in products (such as cars).
