Following the acquisition, Mobileye will retain its Israeli headquarters. Amnon Shashua will serve as an Intel senior vice president and Mobileye's CEO and chief technology officer. Mobileye co-founder, President and CEO Ziv Aviram retired from the company, effective immediately.
Intel plans to use Mobileye's computer vision technology to complement its computing and connectivity expertise to create automated driving solutions. The company will combine the operations of its Automated Driving Group with Mobileye.
