Israeli company Mobileye – which develops driver-safety tech solutions and supplies technology for self-driving cars – was recently valued at about $8.4 billion after debuting on the New York Stock Exchange.
 It’s reportedly the largest US IPO by an Israeli company to date.
 With the big news, we thought it would be appropriate to put a spotlight on emerging automotive tech projects coming out of the European tech ecosystem (a good read about the opportunities in this particular category can be found here). Important note: we’ve decided to leave out startups that operate on the fringes of that category, including transportation and delivery technology companies. That’s for another day.
