Intel kicks off automotive innovation

July 21, 2014

To accelerate innovation toward future autonomous vehicles, Intel Corporation announced the availability of the Intel In-Vehicle Solutions family of hardware and software products, as well as additional investments and technology research designed to help drivers realize more the vehicle an improvement in the information displayed, assistance on the road and, eventually, in the autonomous control.

Intel’s Internet of Things segment achieved revenue of US $ 482 million in the first quarter and a steady growth of 32% in recent years, mainly driven by intense demand from Vehicle Information and Entertainment Systems (IVI). Intel believes that the technology that will equip the future of driving is rapidly evolving, and through research, investment and new products, the industry will be able to redefine driving experiences and bring them to market faster.

“To further strengthen Intel’s technology alliance with the automotive industry and help it prepare for the future, we are combining all of our expertise in consumer electronics and enterprise IT with investments in holistic assemblers that span product development, partnerships with the industry and innovative research, ”said Doug Davis, corporate vice president of Intel’s Internet of Things Group. “Our goal is to stimulate the evolution of convenient resources, currently available in automobiles, to improve the safety tools of the future and, eventually, self-driving capabilities.”

Intel launches vehicle solutions platform

Intel In-Vehicle Solutions is a family of hardware and software products designed to enable manufacturers and their suppliers to more quickly and easily deliver the automotive experiences that consumers require, while reducing their development costs. Intel’s family of products includes a range of compute modules, a suite of embedded software that includes an operating system, in addition to Middleware and development kits.

Intel expects that its standardized platform strategy, based on integrated and validated hardware and software, will generate optimizations of development time of infotainment solutions in more than 12 months, in addition to reducing costs by up to 50% 1, allowing this way manufacturers apply their engineering resources for technological innovations and enhance the in-car experience.

The first available products have been designed for IVI systems with advanced capabilities and are designed to help the driver improve their driving experience. Likewise, it seeks to support the automotive industry to accelerate the development of autonomous driving technologies.

Intel encourages Automotive Technology Research

Automotive research developed by Intel explores how technology will enable new experiences that will allow cars to know who is driving, so that the car’s functionalities are adapted to the needs and preferences of the user, considerably facilitating the way of driving and helping us to reach our destinations safely and efficiently.

The new Personal Vehicle Experience Project has been developed to understand the fun side and the difficult side that people experience when using their cars. The project seeks to discover what people want from their cars and how they can be adapted to make them more predictable and interactive with drivers and their environments.

Intel also understands that safety is paramount for the future of automobiles, so it is developing the Protect My Connected Car research project, which seeks to understand the challenges and potential threat scenarios that the connected car could have. The project demonstrates the potential vulnerability of the automobile’s telematics system and demonstrates how memory protection can defend the main software and hardware elements of the vehicle. This technology can then be aligned with items on Intel Security’s McAfee Safe List to fully protect the connected car.

Intel ethnographers, anthropologists and engineers work together to make roads safer. In this sense, they investigate the safest and most intuitive ways for drivers to interact with their vehicles. Advanced sensors, computing and interconnected data will revolutionize the way people drive, travel and connect with one another.

Intel invests in the automotive sector

In 2012, Intel created a $ 100 million fund in Intel Capital to boost the Connected Car division and help accelerate the automotive industry’s transition toward seamless connectivity between vehicle and consumer electronics, as well as new driving technologies that will enable future autonomous driving capabilities. The most recent investments of the Intel Capital fund have been aimed at ZMP*, a developer of autonomous driving platforms and connected cars with sensors, radars and cameras, essential for the future of driving.

Other investments made in the automotive sector by Intel Capital include CloudMade*, provider of data collection and cloud connectivity required for future IVI solutions; Mocana*, which offers security for the IVI platform with a shield solution for mobile applications; Y Tobii Technology*, which applies perceptual computing technology to enhance driver assistance applications.

Collaboration with the Automotive Ecosystem

Consumer demand causes the supply chain to evolve in such a way that manufacturers also keep up with the pace of technological innovation. Intel continues to invest to ensure that technology is available to deliver the vehicle experiences consumers want today, and to assist in the evolution of vehicles so that they can send and receive valuable information for the development of new technologies and improve the control that is achieved. has on the vehicle.

To this end, Intel announced that it will work with its subsidiary Wind river*, as well as with Green Hills Software *, Mobica *, Symphony Teleca *, QNX and Xse * offering services for manufacturers to adopt Intel In-Vehicle Solutions and quickly bring new customized solutions to market.

Intel continues to join efforts so that automobile manufacturers in different parts of the world have access to more tools during the development of their research. It should be noted that Intel technology is already used in BMW’s Professional Navigation System * for all of its vehicles; Infiniti InTouch * infotainment system in Infiniti Q50 *; and also the Driver Information System * on all new 2015 Hyundai Genesis *.

*Others names and brands could be others ownership.
