By the end of the deployment of 25 automatic driving vehicles
In fact, as early as August this year, Intel announced a plan: the end of this year deployed more than 100 unmanned test car on the road test, and intends to 2019 will be unmanned system provided to the car manufacturers.
The 100 test vehicles will be deployed in the United States, Israel and Europe to ensure that the unmanned system adapts to different traffic rules, traffic signs, and road conditions. The 25 cars that will be deployed by the end of this year will be deployed in California and Phoenix in the United States, which is also the first vehicle deployed by Intel, and Intel will deploy 25 cars each quarter until all 100 vehicles are deployed.
The autopilot level of the deployed vehicle will reach Level 4, which means that in addition to some harsh environments, the test vehicle can be fully automated. It is reported that the team's test car will be composed of multiple brands of vehicles, Intel to prove the versatility of their own technology, while each vehicle will be equipped with cameras, radar and laser radar.
On the technical side, Intel's unmanned vehicles will be equipped with a complete car-to-cloud system with Mobileye sensing and mapping technology, as well as Intel 5G and open computing capabilities. The platform is said to include technologies such as cameras, processors, map mapping and image processing.
It is worth mentioning that,This will be the first large-scale test of the Xeon processor with Mobileye's EyeQ chip.
The first autopilot fleet is critical to Intel's early activities, and Intel will also showcase the autopilot to the public. But the autopilot is not used in the field of automatic taxi, Intel plans to use the public activities to let the media and local residents come to experience.
At the same time, Intel executives also called on the industry to adopt the standard "do-no-harm" program, so as to ensure that the autopilot can operate safely in complex traffic conditions.
As a follower of the followers
Intel in the automatic driving of the "war" can make such a big progress, the active layout of the automatic driving industry and even the role of generous acquisition can not be underestimated.
Since 2015, Intel has been actively driving and automatically working in the way, through mergers and acquisitions to buy more related to the company. In August 2015, Intel acquired $ 13.7 billion for Altera Corporation, which manufactures FPGA chips.
In 2016, Intel has acquired Yogitech, Arynga, Moviduis and other companies. Through acquisitions of acquisitions of multiple companies, Intel gained deep learning and machine vision technology accumulation, and this is just the beginning.
Into 2017, Intel began to force in the automatic driving. Acquired a 15% stake in HERE in January and collaborated on autopilot and Internet technology, and launched the new brand "Intel Go".
In addition, Intel also announced with BMW and Mobileye, before the end of the year will be arranged 40 unmanned BMW car on the road test, this time although Intel looks like a "latecomer", but Intel has shown the layout of the determination of automatic driving.
Turning point In March of this year, Intel bought Mobileye for about $ 15 billion, and the acquisition allowed Intel to combine its high-performance computing and connectivity expertise with Mobileye's leading computer vision expertise to improve itself In the field of automatic driving competitiveness.
A series of actions to Intel automatic driving industry layout increasingly clear, filled the autopilot in the required CPU, 5G, FPGA, EyeQ and most other key technologies.
With the accumulation of existing technology, Intel's first autopilot fleet is finally on the road, although later, but also be able to have the strength to Waymo, Uber and General Cruise and other companies really "side by side".
