When an American company bought Israeli Mobileye in March of this year, it was primarily planned to create a “car cloud”. Service in which it would be possible to combine all computing processes for automated transport. It is believed that by 2020, every car will generate 4 GB of data daily and need to be processed somewhere.
Intel wants to become a leading player in this industry, but after several months of studying the newly acquired technologies, it became clear that it would have to start “off the cart”. The company announced the construction of this year’s fleet of at least a hundred test “roboboy”. Transport platforms with a prohibitive level of automation of all processes – only the fifth category is higher, when the seats in the cabin are initially turned away from the windows, because the person does not participate in the machine control at all.
The construction and operation of test robots will be deployed in Europe, Israel and the US to cover various climatic zones, ride through various types of roads and test new technologies in harsh real conditions. Intel plans to create such an alloy from computer vision systems, automatic mapping and machine learning, which in the future can be applied in a vehicle anywhere in the world.
The purchase of Mobileye cost the Americans $ 15 billion, in return they got access to 237 unique versions of on-board systems, as well as the opportunity to study the work of 3.3 million already installed on the car navigation system chips. Plus Intel’s technology in the field of augmented reality and drones. But to begin work all the same it is necessary from the most basic – to learn the machine to go independently .
