Mobileye has been spotted testing a Mahindra e2o electric car in Bangalore. The company is expected to be testing partial autonomy features as well as collecting data on Indian roads. It appears that the e2o is equipped to carry lidars and cameras, but the test car had none.

Mobileye is a subsidiary of Intel and is based in Israel. Back in August 2015, Tesla equipped its Model S electric sedan with Mobileye's self-driving technology. However, a Tesla crash was attributed to the system not recognizing a crossing trailer. Mobileye said that the system would not be able to recognize a trailer and hence Tesla ended its partnership with Mobileye soon after.

In 2017, Intel bought Mobileye for US$ 15.3 billion.
