Intel Partners With SAIC Motor In Autonomous Car Technology During CES 2018

The rest, he said, will come by the end of January.

Intel will also tie up with SAIC Motor Corp, which will use Mobileye technology to develop Level 3, 4 and 5 autonomous cars in China, the chipmaker said.

During a keynote delivered during the Consumer Electronics Show 2018, Intel disclosed the progress it has made in the driverless auto space.

Data will continue to drive Intel's product development, Krzanich said. The company's emergence in this area is no surprise, given it bought Mobileye, an autonomous auto software firm, for $15 billion previous year, but Intel seems to be making progress, demonstrating a auto with 12 cameras and a 180-degree field of view, letting the vehicle "see" up to 300 metres ahead. According to the chief executive officer of Intel, Brian Krzanich, some of its partners such as Volkswagen, Nissan and BMW who are using mapping design developed by its subsidiary Mobileye are now moving into the deployment phase. Broadcasts will be available in the United States using a soon-to-be released NBC Sports VR app. Intel will also use 5G during the Olympics Winter Games to show sports and entertainment experiences with VR and 360-degree video.


TWO US SENATORS have called for federal regulators to open an investigation into the sale of Intel stock by CEO Brian Krzanich, which was held before the company disclosed the Meltdown and Spectre security flaws.

But before he could jump into his almost two-hour speech about the futuristic world where one could hail helicopters or watch entertainment from the point of view of a favorite actor or athlete, Krzanich had to address the month's big tech news about his chips' security vulnerability.

Intel hasn't yet revealed other details, including how reliable the quantum chip is.

Self driving cars are in focus at CES this year. It will also include Steve Smith, an Intel vice president and general manager of its engineering group.


"A common element to all of the published attacks for all three vulnerability variants of these attacks so far has been the use of cache timing attacks to leak the read speculatively read data to the attacker", Capsule 8 stated in a blog post.

Krzanich said: "We are still discovering new ways to apply the power of AI and data".

Whether or not you think flying cars will become a legitimate mode of transport, everyone is in love with the idea.

During the Intel keynote, Krzanich said Intel's labs and researchers are "committed" to advancing quantum computing, with a Netherlands-based lab specifically testing and building quantum computing systems.


To that end, Krzanich says Intel is working to create "immersive" and "volumetric" media that could attract more interest from mainstream consumers.
