Intel Driving the Future with Data

With the slew of information captured by cameras, LIDAR, RADAR and other sensors, autonomous cars are expected to generate approximately 4 terabytes of data every 90 minutes of operation. Most of this data will be processed, filtered, and analyzed in the car, while the most valuable data will be moved to the data center to update maps, enhance data models and more.

On May 3rd, Intel unveiled its Advanced Vehicle Lab in Silicon Valley during the company’s first Autonomous Driving Workshop. The company’s Silicon Valley Lab joins Intel’s other labs in Arizona, Germany and Oregon. They have been created specifically to explore and better understand the various requirements related to self-driving vehicles and the future of transportation, including sensing, in-vehicle computing, artificial intelligence (AI), connectivity, and supporting cloud technologies and services. At the Workshop, Intel – together with BMW, Delphi, Ericsson and HERE – presented the whole of its autonomous driving program with demonstrations, chalk talks and rides in a Delphi self-driving vehicle.
