Autonomous driving company uses AWS’s unmatched portfolio of cloud
services, highly reliable infrastructure, and scalability to advance its
self-driving technologies in the cloud
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 26, 2018--
Today, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ:
AMZN), announced that Mobileye, an Intel company, chose AWS as its
preferred public cloud provider for its autonomous vehicle business.
Mobileye is running core workloads on AWS for greater speed, agility,
and compute power. AWS will enable Mobileye to innovate at a rapid pace
using AWS’s broad and deep portfolio of services, including compute,
storage, database, analytics, machine learning, and edge computing, to
supply automakers with the most advanced self-driving applications. As
Mobileye grows workloads on AWS, the organization will build a data lake
on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to ingest, process, and
analyze hundreds of petabytes of vehicle data gathered from sensors,
images, and video feeds. Insights gained from this data will give
Mobileye the ability to fine tune its technology in significantly
shorter cycles and iterate on its autonomous vehicle capabilities.
“AWS gives us the most comprehensive set of services and the best
performance so that we can provide our teams with the cloud capabilities
required to deliver autonomous vehicles,” said Professor Amnon Shashua,
President and Chief Executive Officer at Mobileye. “Making AWS our
preferred cloud provider aligns with our overall technical strategy and
desired pace of innovation. We are becoming a more agile organization on
AWS, and continuing our 18-year history of leveraging the most advanced
machine learning and deep learning technologies available.”
“With AWS, Mobileye is accelerating the introduction of technologies
that automate driving tasks to make autonomous vehicles a reality,” said
Mike Clayville, Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS.
“AWS’s industry-leading services are enabling Mobileye to quickly
innovate on top of our highly scalable, fault-tolerant infrastructure.
Mobileye can now operate at peak performance, glean insights from their
data, and speed up the development process required to put self-driving
vehicles on the roadway much faster.”
