In a sense, Grunnet-Jepsen is relocating an instructions where the wind is blowing. There is a growing need for imaging video cameras and sensing units in the race for self-governing cars and trucks. Vehicle makers are working separately with business like Luminar to develop homegrown self-governing vehicle systems.
Intel in August validated a report from CRN that it was unwinding the RealSense service.
The head of the RealSense Group, Sagi Ben Moshe, left Intel in August.
Executives leaving departments being closed down is not unusual. Intel decreased to discuss Grunnet-Jepsen’s departure.
