Intel’s Core i7 the Future of Self-Driving Cars?

Chief executive Brian Krzanich has recently announced that Intel will invest $250 million in self-driving cars with the hopes to “make fully autonomous driving a reality.” Mobileye, the creators of Tesla Motors’ autopilot system, along with Delphi have signed on to help make this a reality.

Intel and Mobileye have teamed up with BMW to have a self-driving car produced by 2021. Intel has decided to use the Core i7 as a preliminary controlling source, along with Mobileye’s EyeQ chip. The Core i7 will be able to do “twenty trillion mathematical operations per second”, and after further development, the chip will have two times the processor power. Intel may also announce a few “more powerful” chip options at the Consumer Electronic Show this January in Las Vegas.

According to the New York Times, the Core i7 won’t be arriving in cars for another two more years. Intel also won’t just take any old Core i7 and stick it into a car without properly analyzing space for the chip, microprocessors, and factoring in temperature within the car to be compatible with the Core i7 chip.

While companies like Nvidia have dedicated the next few years to making their Tegra, basically like Intel’s Core, the new brain for future cars, Intel has not announced any competitors that have fueled the surge for autonomous cars. Nvidia’s new Parker Chip, which came out in August, already has the technology to identify road signs, other cars, and even pedestrians.
