(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to Israel’s Mobileye technology company was ranked sixth on a list of the world’s 50 “smartest” companies published on Tuesday by MIT Technology Review.

The top five spots were filled by Amazon, Baidu, Illumina, Tesla Motors, and Aquion Energy.

Describing Mobileye, MIT Technology Review wrote, “How can automakers compete with companies developing self-driving vehicles, such as Google parent Alphabet? One increasingly popular option is to partner with Mobileye, which makes machine vision systems and motion detection algorithms that warn drivers when they are deviating from driving lanes or about to collide with cars in front of them....Mobileye is already working on autopilot and collision avoidance technology for Audi, BMW, General Motors, Nissan, Tesla, Volkswagen, and Volvo, and recently inked an agreement with two undisclosed automakers to provide systems for fully autonomous cars.”
