Intel Announces Collaboration with Waymo

Eric Schmidt and Anthony Foxx with Google car

"Self-driving technology can help prevent these errors by giving autonomous vehicles the capacity to learn from the collective experience of millions of cars - avoiding the mistakes of others and creating a safer driving environment", says Krzanich.

The chipmaker admitted it had worked with the company during the design of its compute platform to allow autonomous cars to process information in real time. A post from Waymo disclosed that it has used Intel technology in its self-driving cars since 2009.

The tech giant recently announced that they are now looking at a $15 billion investment with the acquisition of the autonomous vision company Mobileye last March; they are looking to pioneer and push boundaries in terms of business models.

The announcement marked the first time Waymo, formerly Google's autonomous program, has acknowledged a collaboration with a supplier.

"As Waymo's self-driving technology becomes smarter and more capable, its high-performance hardware and software will require even more powerful and efficient computers", Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in a blog post Monday.

Waymo, which has developed its own sensors, is not using the autonomous vision system created by Mobileye. There were no financial terms revealed, and other details about the partnership were not disclosed, but we did gain some new insights about Waymo's driverless vehicle platform.




"Intel's technology supports the advanced processing inside our vehicles, with the ability to manufacture to meet Waymo's needs at scale", he said. It's therefore little surprise why Waymo, Google's self-driving division, is years ahead of its rivals.

This hardware will be installed on Waymo's fleet of Chrysler's Pacifica hybrid minivans.

People are anxiously waiting for Self driving cars.

'Before starting production in October, we'd put these early vehicles through their paces at our own test track in California, and FCA's Chelsea Proving Grounds in Chelsea, MI and their Arizona Proving Grounds in Yucca, AZ.

As can be seen from this automation taxonomy table, level 5 automation is where there might not even need to be a driver's position in the auto, very similar to what Apple was contemplating with its Project Titan.
