Intel, Delphi Automotive and Mobileye announced yesterday (Nov. 29) plans to collaborate in creating the supercomputing technology necessary to get the first generation of self-driving cars up and running.
Delphi and Mobileye hope to develop a system to make it less expensive for automakers to produce cars and trucks to drive themselves in two years’ time. Mobileye and Intel also plan to develop chips capable of performing 20 trillion mathematical operations per second.
Intel previously announced plans to invest $250 million in startups working on automated-driving technologies. In July of this year, Intel and Mobileye partnered with BMW to provide chips for a self-driving car slated to be released in 2021.
Here are the numbers:
2 | Years Delphi and Mobileye project it will take to develop a system allowing cheaper production of self-driving vehicles
20 trillion | Number of operations per second the computer chips in self-driving technology produced by Mobileye and Intel are able to perform
$250 million | Amount Intel plans to invest in automated-driving technology startups
2021 | The year Mobileye and Intel hope to have chips for a self-driving BMW up and running
