“That was a huge amount of money spent on Mobileye, and yet it does not look as if they ever really worked together closely,” said Stefan Bratzel, head of Germany’s Center of Automotive Management, which tracks innovation in the car industry. 


“Along with Waymo and Cruise, Mobileye is one of the top three Western players in terms of their technology, ahead of Tesla and Argo AI,” Bratzel said, adding China also has three strong competitors in Pony.AI, Baidu, and AutoX.
