SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 7, 2014 – Intel Corporation today announced that it has entered into a manufacturing agreement with Panasonic Corporation's System LSI Business Division. Intel's custom foundry business will manufacture future Panasonic system-on-chips (SoCs) using Intel's 14nm low-power manufacturing process.

 

Panasonic's next-generation SoCs will target audio visual-based equipment markets, and will enable higher levels of performance, power and viewing experience for consumers.

 

"Intel's 14nm Tri-Gate process technology is very important to develop the next- generation SoCs," said Yoshifumi Okamoto, director, Panasonic Corporation SLSI Business Division. "We will deliver highly improved performance and power advantages with next-generation SoCs by leveraging Intel's 14nm Tri-Gate process technology through our collaboration."

 

Intel's leading-edge 14nm low-power process technology, which includes the second generation of Tri-Gate transistors, is optimized for low-power applications. This will enable Panasonic's SoCs to achieve high levels of performance and functionality at lower power levels than was possible with planar transistors.

 

"We look forward to collaborating with the Panasonic SLSI Business Division," said Sunit Rikhi, vice president and general manager, Intel Custom Foundry. "We will work hard to deliver the value of power-efficient performance of our 14nm LP process to Panasonic's next-generation SoCs. This agreement with Panasonic is an important step in the buildup of Intel's foundry business."

 

Five other semiconductor companies have announced agreements with Intel's custom foundry business, including Altera, Achronix Semiconductor, Tabula, Netronome and Microsemi.

This short video optimized for Vine shows Jimmy, an affordable, customizable and self-programmable 2-foot tall humanoid robot. Jimmy is based on Intel® Core™ i5 processor technology, and he walks, talks, makes hand gestures, and even uses social media channels. The robot is part of the 21st Century Robot Project that provides a forum for makers worldwide to collaborate and build affordable, personalized robots using open-source design files and available apps. Jimmy himself will soon be available to download and print for an affordable price. Once Jimmy is printed out and assembled, users will be able to program him and install apps to add to his capabilities in the same way as we now install apps on mobile devices. Combined with the growing maker culture, technologies such as Intel® Galileo, Intel® Edison, 3-D printing and open-source app development are making it easier for individuals to create inventions such as Jimmy. It is feasible that within the next five years people may be able to build affordable custom robots based on Intel technology for less than $1,000.

The new movie “How to Train Your Dragon 2” is the first that was developed using a new animation platform created by DreamWorks Animation*.Intel worked extensively with DreamWorks on two elements of that platform, PrEMO and Torch. The two tools are built-from-the-ground-up animation and lighting applications that give animators instantaneous feedback on changes made to a scene. These tools were built to ensure all aspects of the hardware and software were optimized to take advantage of the power of each core in Intel’s processors. Want to learn more? Check out the details.

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Joint research project between Ford and Intel explores new applications for interior cameras, using data from existing vehicle sensors to enhance the in-vehicle experience for drivers and passengers.
  • Mobile Interior Imaging, also known as Project Mobii, uses facial recognition software to offer enhanced privacy controls, and a more secure and personalized in-vehicle experience.
  • A mobile phone app enables a driver to remotely access the vehicle, allowing for a quick check of belongings left inside or authorizing/declining other drivers to operate the vehicle.

 

 

DEARBORN, Mich., June 25, 2014 – As vehicles become an integral part of the Internet of Things, Ford and Intel are researching new opportunities for the connected car, including giving drivers the ability to remotely peer into their car using a smartphone, or a vehicle that could identify its owner using facial recognition software.

 

The joint research project, called Mobile Interior Imaging, or Project Mobii, explores how interior-facing cameras could be integrated with sensor technology and data already generated within and around the vehicle to create a more personalized and seamless interaction between driver and vehicle that transforms the driving experience.

 

The Mobii research was a collaboration between Intel ethnographers, anthropologists and engineers alongside Ford research engineers, and incorporates perceptual computing technology to offer a more enjoyable and intuitive vehicle experience.

 

"Our goal with the Mobii research is to explore how drivers interact with technology in the car and how we can then make that interaction more intuitive and predictive," said Paul Mascarenas, chief technical officer and vice president, Ford Research and Innovation. "The use of interior imaging is purely research at this point; however, the insights we've gained will help us shape the customer experience in the long term."

 

Ford now uses exterior vehicle cameras for driver-assist features such as lane-keeping assist and lane departure warning. The Mobii research examines new applications for interior cameras, including driver authentication. The use of facial recognition software offers improved privacy controls, and enables Project Mobii to identify different drivers and automatically adjust features based on an individual's preferences.

 

"As a trusted technology leader and innovator, Intel understands the challenges automakers are facing and is a committed partner in this unprecedented opportunity," said Doug Davis, vice president, Internet of Things Group at Intel. "Project Mobii is a great example of Intel collaborating with Ford to help enable a secure, more connected driving experience."

 

Improved privacy and parental controls
Upon entering the vehicle, the driver is authenticated by Project Mobii through a front-facing camera using facial recognition software. The in-car experience is then personalized to display information specific to that driver, such as calendar, music and contacts. If Project Mobii detects a passenger in the car, a privacy mode activates to display only navigation.

 

If Project Mobii does not recognize the driver, a photo is sent to the primary vehicle owner's smartphone. That owner can then set permissions and specify features that should be enabled or disabled. If the driver is the child of the vehicle owner, for example, restrictions could be automatically set to require safety belt use and to limit speed, audio volume or mobile phone use while driving.

 

Gesture recognition software enables intuitive interaction for the driver. A combination of natural gestures and simple voice commands can simplify such tasks as turning the heat up and down, or opening and closing a sunroof while driving.
