Intel may have scaled down or even axed some of its extracurricular activities, like wearables and IoT, but it isn’t yet backing down from down from one of those: autonomous vehicles.
After acquiring Mobileye just recently, the chip maker has double down on its involvement in making the self-driving car dream come true.
It’s latest contribution, curiously, is a mathematical formula that it claims will offer a more or less standard way to not only ensure driving safety but also assign responsibility for when accidents do happen.
There are two main concerns when it comes to autonomous vehicle driving safety.
First is what almost all car makers are currently focused on, the sensors, equipment, and algorithms that enable such cars to detect, identify, and avoid objects and people around them.
But there is also one other problem: assigning fault if and when accidents do happen.
