Today it announced the launch the first vehicle of its highly automated car test fleetwith partner BMW. The vehicles will also include technology from Intel's latest acquisition, Mobileye.

At an event in San Jose, Intel vice president of the automated driving group Kathy Winter unveiled the first of 40 BMW 7 Series highly-automated cars it'll be testing on the road. All the cars are expected to be on the road by the end of the year. All the vehicles will include multiple Mobileye cameras for road scanning.
