Intel’s Internet of Things Group achieved revenue of $482 million in the first quarter, up 32% year-over-year, driven by strong demand for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. Intel believes the technology that will power the future of driving is quickly evolving, and through research, investments and new products, it can help the industry shape future driving experiences and bring them to market more quickly. “To further strengthen Intel’s technology partnership with the automotive industry and prepare for the future, we are combining our breadth of experience in consumer electronics and enterprise IT with a holistic automotive investment across product development, industry partnerships and groundbreaking research efforts,” said Doug Davis, corporate vice president, Internet of Things Group at Intel. “Our goal is to fuel the evolution from convenience features available in the car today to enhanced safety features of tomorrow and eventually self-driving capabilities.” Intel Launches In-Vehicle Solutions PlatformIntel® In-Vehicle Solutions are a family of hardware and software products designed to enable carmakers and their suppliers to more quickly and easily deliver in-vehicle experiences that consumers demand, while reducing the cost of developing them. The family of products includes a range of compute modules, an integrated software stack of operating system plus middleware, and development kits. Intel expects its standardized platform approach based on integrated and validated hardware and software to shorten infotainment development time by more than 12 months and reduce costs up to 50 percent 1, thus enabling automakers to apply their engineering resources to technology innovations and enhanced experiences in the car. The first available products are designed for IVI systems with advanced driver assistance capabilities, with future products geared for advanced driving experiences such as autonomous or self-driving cars.
