Mobileye, Delphi, and Intel team up to develop a revolutionary electric car. The next generation of cars will be so advanced that they can be characterized as computers on wheels. They are all equipped with the most advanced technology, having implemented chips and processors able to think and calculate the next move without your help.
Three powerful tech companies will unite their powers to collaborate in the development of a new electric car. Intel will be forced to make a great effort to catch up with the new technology of autonomous vehicles. Other companies have already registered significant results in the field of self-driving cars.
The computer which will control such an excellent car will be able to process the suitable speed, scanning the road for pedestrians and registering images from street cameras and radars, all of these happening in real time. The new and improved processor of the electric cars will indeed surpass the technology of regular cars.
On November 29, all these famous companies have announced their collaboration meant to enable Intel to offer Delphi and Mobileye new computer chips. Delphi is an auto supplier, and Mobileye is company specialized in vision systems previously used by Tesla Motors in the development of self-driving cars.
In the next two years, Mobileye and Delphi plan to provide for all automakers a revolutionary system which can help the development of less expensive vehicles, outfitting them with the intelligence of becoming autonomous. The same intelligent technology will be used for cars with a more affordable price.
The cornerstone of this new technology will be represented by a package of computer chips provided by Mobileye and Intel. Glen DeVos, the vice president of engineering and services at Delphi, has claimed that these chips are so advanced that they can compute approximately twenty trillion mathematical operations/ second.
He also argued that their purpose is to produce an even more powerful system, having the ability to compute operations about two or three times faster than the current computing system. Automakers know that there is never too much power of processing when it comes to developing autonomous vehicles. A spokesperson from Intel has already confirmed the collaboration between Mobileye, Delphi, and Intel.
The woman argued that Mobileye and Delphi will first use a Core i7 Intel chip and after a while, they will be provided with a new and more powerful processor.
