In a research report on Thursday, Chowdhry noted that when Intel announced the partnership it was singularly putting a bet on Mobileye's cameras. The analyst added Intel has pivoted on the initiative and highlighted what the company's CEO Brian Krzanich said at the L.A. Autoshow.
Specifically, Krzanich said between all the data points of a smart car including sensors, cameras, radars and sonars, each car could produce four terabytes of information each day.
Chowdhry argued that the executive's comments indicate Intel has now realized Sensor Fusion "is the only way to get to autonomous driving." The problem is that Intel is 20 years behind the leader NVIDIA Corporation
Compare This To Tesla
Chowdhry continued that Intel's partnership is minuscule compared to Tesla Motors Inc
The analyst argued that Tesla has already accumulated 1.3 billion miles' worth of auto-pilot data and has more than 30,000 vehicles equipped with its Autopilot hardware 1.0 and soon every new vehicle will be equipped with the Autopilot hardware 2.0.
"TSLA is the winner," the analyst concluded. "More miles + Sensor Fusion = better Machine Learning Training Models = Better prediction = level 4 autonomous driving."
