Intel has announced Intel GO In-Vehicle Development Platforms for Automated Driving, which is specifically tailored for the self-driving technology market in that it's highly scalable and designed to meet the high compute demands of the fully autonomous driving industry.

BMW Group, Intel, and computer-vision maker Mobileye today announced they will collaborate to create a fleet of about 40 autonomous BMW vehicles that will hit U.S. and European roads by the second half of 2017.

The pilot project is aimed at demonstrating advances the three companies have made in technology that enables fully self-driving vehicles.

The BMW 7 Series will be used as the initial platform for Intel processor and Mobileye computer vision technology during the global trials.

Mobileye, an Israeli technology company, is a leader in developing both software and proprietary computer chip technology EyeQ to support vision-based advanced driver assistance systems ADAS that provide warnings for collision prevention and mitigation.

Mobileye has also partnered with other automakers and multi-billion-dollar tier 1 auto parts maker Delphi to supply its technology to the industry.
