Mobileye CEO Prioritizes Safety in Self-Driving Tech at CES 2024
Mobileye's commitment to safety in self-driving tech at CES 2024. CEO Amnon Shashua emphasizes a smart approach for a secure driving future.
The talk of the town in the car world is all about self-driving cars, and one company, Mobileye (MBLY), is making sure safety is the top priority. After some issues with pedestrian accidents involving General Motors' Cruise robotaxi, Mobileye's CEO, Amnon Shashua, wants to make self-driving cars safer while improving how they work.
At CES 2024 (that's the Consumer Electronics Show), Shashua chats with Yahoo Finance's Akiko Fujita about what Mobileye is up to. He explains that Mobileye is working hard to make their driving systems better and available for all kinds of car makers. Shashua breaks down the self-driving story into three main things: keeping it safe, making it useful for riders, and turning self-driving cars into really important resources.
According to Shashua, Mobileye is involved in all three of these things. He makes it clear that safety is the most crucial part of talking about self-driving cars. He says, "You want a system that looks at everything around you in a full circle, knows what's going on, and stops you from making mistakes. It prevents accidents, like hitting a person or getting too close to another car. Your car should be smart enough to avoid that."
In simple terms, Shashua is saying that Mobileye is all about making sure self-driving cars are super safe. They want the cars to see everything, understand what's happening, and make sure you don't run into any problems, like hitting people or other cars. It's like having a smart car that keeps you out of trouble, and that's what Mobileye is all about.
