By : |January 9, 2018 0

At the CES 2018, Intel announced a slew of new, innovative technologies. In the autonomous space, Intel unveiled its first autonomous vehicle in its 100-car test fleet; disclosed that BMW, Nissan, and Volkswagen are moving their Mobileye-based mapping design wins to actual deployments; and announced new collaborations with SAIC Motor and NavInfo to extend crowdsourced map building to China.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced that 2 million vehicles from BMW, Nissan and Volkswagen will use Mobileye Road Experience Management (REM) technology to crowdsource data to build and rapidly update low-cost, scalable high-definition maps throughout this year.

Krzanich also disclosed details for the company’s new automated driving platform, which combines automotive-grade Intel Atom processors with Mobileye EyeQ5 chips to deliver a platform with industry-leading scalability and versatility for L3 (Level 3) to L5 (Level 5) autonomous driving.

Intel has also partnered with Ferrari North America to bring the power of AI to the Ferrari Challenge North America Series that will take place on six courses in the US this year. He also announced a new type of computing architecture that mimics the way brains observe, learn and understand. Intel’s neuromorphic research prototype chip (“Loihi”) is now fully operational and will be shared with research partners this year.

Intel said it is developing a quantum computing system. Intel shipped its first 49-qubit quantum computing test chip (“Tangle Lake”) to research partner QuTech. Krzanich stated it has the potential to compete at a far greater speed than anything ever achieved before.

The Intel CEO also announced that Intel will enable the largest virtual reality event till date with the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 using Intel True VR technology. Intel, together with the official Rights Holding Broadcasters, will capture a record 30 Olympic events, with both live and video-on-demand content available.
