Watch Intel's Mobileye test autonomous cars in NYC for the first time

Mobileye, an Israeli autonomous vehicle startup acquired by Intel, is putting its self-driving system to the ultimate test: the mean streets of New York City.

At an event this week, Intel announced that its Mobileye self-driving cars were approved to drive through NYC streets. It's the only autonomous vehicle testing permit-holder in the city. It's also the first company to have a dedicated testing program in the country's most populous municipality.

San Francisco and the Bay Area, along with Arizona, have been the usual testing sites for other companies like Waymo, Cruise, and Aurora.

As the video shows, NYC is full of pedestrians (and jaywalkers!), buses, construction zones, aggressive drivers, double-parked cars, bridges, tunnels, delivery vans, and so much more.

The cars still have a safety driver at the helm, but the cameras (and backup radar and light-detecting LiDAR sensors) are guiding the ride. The driver keeps their hands off the wheel throughout the entire 40-minute drive.

The autonomous drive is unedited so you can see what it's like for a machine to take on NYC at street level.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
