When it comes to intelligent connected cars, chip manufacturers are putting the pedal to the metal. After all, the ultra-fast LTE successor 5G is already scheduled for 2020.
Intel took over the California startup Nervana back in August of last year. The chip manufacturer has now presented a concept at CES in Las Vegas that shows what’s in store for the company’s AI platform. A platform (Intel GO) for the development and steering of self-navigating cars is planned. The Intel GO In-Vehicle Development Platform for Automated Driving is scheduled to appear in two versions and allow manufacturers to develop solutions for monitoring the environment and decision-making. The project is situated at the crossover between automotive, connectivity and cloud.
The Intel GO Automotive 5G Platform also provides a connection to the upcoming 5G mobile network – Intel only recently announced its complementary 5G modem , which should be available in the first half of 2017. The Intel GO Automotive SDK includes various development tools for deep-learning processes. In the second half of 2017, Intel GO is scheduled to be tested in 40 autonomous vehicles that BMW is developing together with Mobileye , the Israeli manufacturer of advanced driver assistance systems.
