Intel Research Drives Automotive Innovation

From connected cars to autonomous driving—convenience and safety lead the way

The future of driving is being molded by technology, and Intel is using research, investments, and new products to help our partners shape the future driving experience.  Research projects include:

  • Advanced sensing technology
  • Increased safety and efficiency of transportation
  • The situational-aware car

Ford and Intel create Mobii*

Cars that recognize the driver

Ford and Intel are researching how drivers interact with technology in the car and how to make that interaction more intuitive and predictive. "Mobile Interior Imaging" (Mobii*) uses existing interior cameras and sensors to enable new applications such as driver authentication, and using your smart phone to remotely look inside your car.

Seeing through the storm

Intel is collaborating with researchers from Carnegie Mellon University to develop smart headlights that may someday improve road safety by making precipitation invisible to drivers at night.

Personal vehicle experience

What if your car knew who was inside, what their tastes are, understood the conversations going on in the car, and then, perhaps, made recommendations based on that information?
