Intel and the Connected Car

http://www.forbes.com/sites/laurengensler/2015/06/01/intel-altera-16-7-billion/#7a01693031baImplementing the connected car and developing autonomous vehicles present many technical challenges for both the auto industry and tech industry. Intel is one of the strong partners for carmakers to help transform the car ownership experience.

Intel has been partnering with some of the auto giants in different projects. Its last partnership was with Ford on the creation of Mobii – Mobile Interior Imaging. They were both looking to explore new ways to personalize the in-vehicle experience, through data from interior cameras in existing vehicle sensors. Mobii is a car and smartphone app that allows the driver to see what is inside the car when he is not there. It also allows the car to recognize the driver through facial recognition and consequently, the car is able to display the driver’s settings, such as music and contacts. Jaguar Land Rover is also collaborating with Intel to enhance the automaker’s research and product development on future in-vehicle technologies to enhance new driving experiences.

Intel powered Hyundai’s in driver information system in the all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis. This enables Hyundai to offer a best-in-class, in-vehicle high-definition screen and improved response times when interacting with the system. DENSO also collaborates with Intel on the research to develop the next generation of in-vehicle information systems.

Infiniti selected Intel technology to power the company’s Infiniti InTouch in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system, and the first application is the Infiniti Q50. Intel and Toyota are researching together on the next generation of in-vehicle infotainment systems. HawTai Motor Group deployed one of the first IVI equipped production cars in China with a system powered by the Intel Atom processor.

Intel technology is also used in the BMW’s navigation system – Professional – part of BMW ConnectedDrive – for all its vehicle models, including the future i Series models.

Car And Us.com is a website for car owners and drivers that provides information on their car and allows drivers to easily manage their vehicles.
