An Israeli tech firm focused on autonomous driving systems shared an impressive new video of one of its vehicles navigating the cramped and crowded streets of Jerusalem.

The Ford sedan called Autonomous Driving Test Vehicle is shown navigating an amazing array of obstacles, including ‘roundabouts, unprotected turns, narrow streets, close maneuvers, lots of pedestrians, and pretty much anything you can think of.’

The car was developed by Mobileye, a recent Intel acquisition that develops a wide range of mobility devices and software for motor vehicles.

Unlike many other self-driving cars, the Mobileye vehicle doesn’t use any LIDAR or RADAR sensors and instead creates a detailed three-dimensional map of its surroundings using 12 different video cameras mounted on the car body. 

The camera feeds are analyzed by software running on two of the company’s proprietary EyeQ 5 chips, according to a report by The Verge. 

The chips render a live 3D simulation of the environment on a dashboard screen that lets passengers see what the computer sees, or thinks it’s seeing.

The journey shows the car easily navigating through a number of unexpected obstacles and traffic events, including a parked car pulling out in front of it and a construction zone where two way traffic is forced to take turns passing through a narrowed road.

The car is also shown navigating through a multi-vehicle
