Intel has launched Intel In-Vehicle Solutions to boost its Internet of Things (IoT) business presence in the automotive industry.
Earlier, Intel said that its Internet of Things Group revenue rose 32 percent to $482 million in the first quarter of 2014, driven by demand for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
Intel In-Vehicle Solutions are designed to enable carmakers and their suppliers to better in-vehicle experiences, while cutting the development cost.
The family of products includes a range of compute modules, an integrated software stack of operating system plus middleware, and development kits.
Intel said its standardized platform approach will shorten development time by 12 months and reduce costs up to 50 percent.
The company in a statement said the first available products are designed for IVI systems with driver assistance capabilities, with future products geared for driving experiences such as autonomous or self-driving cars.
Intel said the new Personal Vehicle Experience Research Project aims to focus on offering solutions that address consumer demands including creation of cars that can be more adaptive, predictive and interactive with drivers and its surroundings.
The Secure My Connected Car Research Project showcases the vulnerability of the car’s telematics system and shows how memory protection can defend critical in-vehicle hardware and software.
This technology can then be paired with McAfee whitelisting technology from Intel Security to secure the connected car.
Intel is also investing in ZMP, developers of an autonomous driving platform and vehicles connected with sensors, radars and cameras, which will be critical to the future of driving. Intel did not share financial details.
Earlier, Intel Capital invested in CloudMade, a provider of data aggregation and cloud connectivity necessary for future IVI solutions; Mocana, which delivers security to the IVI platform with a mobile app-shielding solution; and Tobii Technology, which applies perceptual computing technology to advanced driver assistance applications.
Meanwhile, Intel will support BMW’s Navigation System Professional for all its vehicle models, the Infiniti InTouch infotainment system in the Infiniti Q50 and the Driver Information System in the all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis with its latest technologies.
