Mobileye is pursuing some hot automotive trends, but it's still unclear if the company's strategy will payoff.

Mobileye (MBLY) is pursuing two hot trends in the automotive market right now. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles are both a key focus for automakers, and Mobileye is getting in on them early. That's a wise move, considering that 12 million autonomous vehicles are expected to ht the market in 2035, and ADAS suppliers are expected to bring in $22 billion in revenue by 2020.

But there's no guarantee Mobileye's future road is paved in gold. The company faces strong competition from Alphabet's (GOOG 2.68%) (GOOGL 2.63%) Google, which is already the clear leader in autonomous driving systems, and from NVIDIA (NVDA 5.92%). All three companies are pursuing autonomous driving in their own way, and it's still unclear how the self-driving market will play out. This gives Mobileye an opportunity to make big gains in the growing autonomous market -- if its software can outpace the competition.(F 3.06%)
