What’s New: Israel-based Mobileye, an Intel company, and United Arab Emirates-based Al Habtoor Group (AHG) announced a strategic collaboration to propel deployment of autonomous vehicles and mobility services in Dubai, UAE. The agreement between companies based in Israel and the UAE was made possible by the historic Abraham Accords signed this month. The collaboration includes multiple components including mapping technologies for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), self-driving vehicles and smart city solutions.
“This historic collaboration between Mobileye and Al Habtoor Group presents an opportunity to transform UAE cities by accelerating smart city development and advancing transportation services with the most cutting-edge technology.”
–Prof. Amnon Shashua, Mobileye president and CEO
Why it Matters: The agreement between the companies signals a long-term cooperation for the deployment of driverless mobility solutions in Dubai based on Mobileye’s autonomous vehicle (AV) technology. Mobileye-equipped vehicles will begin harvesting data for insights and map creation to make these services possible.
