Intel Joins Arizona Public-Private Consortium for Autonomous Vehicle Safety

The state of Arizona has selected Intel to be a founding partner of a public-private consortium that aims to ensure the safety of automated vehicles.

Intel said Thursday it will support the Institute for Automated Mobility in efforts to develop policies, identify research priorities and sponsor ancillary studies.

The company intends to work with partners that offer the Responsibility Sensitive Safety model developed by its Mobileye subsidiary.

Other IAM founding members are Arizona’s transportation and public safety departments, commerce authority and three state-based universities.

The institute plans to conduct regulatory research and develop an enclosed 2.1-mile safety test track.

Jack Weast, senior principal engineer at Intel and vice president of automated vehicle standards at Mobileye, said the company and the institute seek to build consumer trust on automated vehicles by investing in efforts to establish technology-neutral models, policies and standards for road safety.
