Intel & Waymo Collaborated On Compute Platform Design For Self-Driving Cars

Intel, which announced the $15 billion acquisition of autonomous vision company Mobileye in March, is pushing to expand in autonomous vehicles, a fast-growing industry, across a variety of business models.

Intel Corp. announced an alliance with Google's parent company Alphabet's self-driving auto units, Waymo on Monday, Sep 18, 2017. The collaboration is ongoing.

"Self-driving technology can help prevent these errors by giving autonomous vehicles the capacity to learn from the collective experience of millions of cars - avoiding the mistakes of others and creating a safer driving environment", says Krzanich.

According to Krzanich, their whole relationship hasn't been exclusive to minivans, "With 3 million miles of real-world driving, Waymo cars with Intel technology inside have already processed more self-driving vehicle miles than any other autonomous fleet on U.S. roads", The U.S. roads they mentioned were mainly from Arizona and California.

It was the first time both companies acknowledged the collaboration, a revelation that gives new insight into Waymo's approach to self-driving vehicles.

As much as Intel might be helping with Waymo's automated vehicles, the company is apparently also working on its own automated vehicles.

Security council sanctions and stressed that "parties directly involved" must also take action and responsibility. Wang said in a meeting with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Monday that China would strictly implement U.N.

Can Intel and Waymo's partnership create a fully autonomous vehicle?

Waymo stated that its engineers have been working with Intel since the design stage to integrate some of its advanced processors and other technology into its platform. It's therefore little surprise why Waymo, Google's self-driving division, is years ahead of its rivals.

Numerous existing self-driving cars on U.S. roads, including Waymo's, are now within or close to level 4 autonomy, making it one step away from being advanced enough to be fully autonomous.

People are anxiously waiting for Self driving cars.

Waymo's self-driving Chrysler Pacifica hybrid minivans are being tested on public roads in Arizona and California.

Using several of our early prototype minivans, we've already run a gamut of tests, including over 200 hours of extreme-weather testing, ' Krafcik said.
