Shashua recently spoke to Calcalist in London, where the company demonstrated its new EyeQ4 camera, Mobileye’s fourth-generation system-on-chip, which will track everything a human driver sees, upload it to the cloud, and analyze it. “The camera will be an intelligent agent that continuously makes lists,” Shashua explained. “Where are the traffic lights, the electric poles, where is the bus station; it will even collect information about manhole covers on the road,” he said. announced a partnership with Ordnance Survey, the national mapping agency of the U.K., to develop high-precision maps of London’s telecommunication networks, and its water, electricity, gas, and sewage infrastructure, following a one-year pilot.
