Self driving car research is booming now and almost every research company is working on it. But, sometimes question arise that if a self driving car crashed whose fault is this? Is this the developers fault or company to be considered as guilty?

Intel and Mobileye, an Intel company proposed a mathematical formula to prove the safety of self driving cars. Professor Amnon Shashua, Mobileye CEO and Intel senior vice president was speaking in World Knowledge Forum in Seoul, South Korea, they offered this formula. Their research is published in Academic paper.

Shashua told that — all the rules and regulation are made today around the idea of a driver in control of the car and there are some new parameters required for autonomous cars.

He also explained — “The ability to assign fault is the key. Just like the best human drivers in the world, self-driving cars cannot avoid accidents due to actions beyond their control. But the most responsible, aware and cautious driver is very unlikely to cause an accident of his or her own fault, particularly if they had 360-degree vision and lightning-fast reaction times like autonomous vehicles will.”

What is Mobileye

Mobileye, an Intel company, is a leader in automated technology and the world’s largest supplier of cameras for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). With many years of success in vehicle automation and the evolution from ADAS to full autonomy, Shashua and his colleague Shai Shalev-Shwartz developed a mathematical formula that can bring certainty to the open questions of liability and blame in the event of an accident when a vehicle has no human driver.

Intel acquired Mobileye in march this year for $15.3 billion.
