Today Intel opened the doors to its Silicon Valley Innovation Center for Autonomous Driving. At this workshop, Intel – together with BMW, Delphi, Ericsson and HERE – demonstrated tremendous progress toward our autonomous future. The theme of the day was “the data-driven journey” and featured demonstrations and “chalk talks” that helped explain the autonomous driving data challenge from car-to-cloud.
- BMW showed one of the first of approximately 40 highly automated vehicles that were announced by BMW, Intel and Mobileye earlier this year.
- Delphi provided rides in its fully autonomous vehicle throughout the day, giving journalists the opportunity to experience an Intel-powered autonomous road trip first-hand.
- Intel and Ericsson showed progress toward 5G for autonomous driving with a live, over-the-air demonstration of data moving across a 5G network between the car and the cloud.
- Intel executives provided technical courses on the autonomous driving data challenge and its impact on everything related to autonomous driving, including the design of an autonomous car brain; data center planning and design; network infrastructure: and the artificial intelligence needed to process, understand, manage, move, share, store and learn from the data.
