Intel and Ambarella Receive California Test License

Chip giant Intel and computer vision specialist Ambarella received a license for testing self-driving cars on public roads in California. This makes them the 51st and 52nd entity to receive such a permit.

Intel has been trying to push its way in developing self-driving car, most notably by acquiring the Israeli company Mobileye, which specializes in automated driver assist systems. Intel paid 15 billion dollars for that acquisition. The Santa Clara-based chip behemoth has missed out in the past the ascendance of mobile devices and faces the same dilemma with graphic processors for autonomous cars, which is dominated by rivals Nvidia and Qualcomm.

Ambarella is a company specialized on solutions around computer vision. The company was founded in 2004 and is based in Santa Clara in California. It works on solutions for autonomous cars, drones, or sports cameras among others.
