Intel and BMW showcase first automated car

At the beginning of this year, the Munich-based premium carmaker announced it would be putting forty highly automated cars on the road as part of a test fleet co-developed with Intel and Mobileye in the run up to fully autonomous BMWs, expected to ‘go live’ in 2021. Four months later, Intel pulls the sheet off the first example of this fleet during a public event at the company’s Innovation Centre for Autonomous Driving, in Silicon Valley.

The car in question is the first of forty BMW 7-Series, which will all be on the road by the end of the year. Essential to the cars’ self-driving capabilities are the multiple road-scanning cameras developed by Mobileye, which was acquired by Intel only recently. Remarkably, BMW and Intel have the intention of creating a scalable platform, which can be used by other carmakers.
