The self-driving car is certainly the future of the automotive sector; Intel also understood this, which recently bought an Italian company to develop this project.
Intel has indeed purchased Yogitech, as the same company from Santa Clara (California) announced on the official blog: “For years Intel has been producing high-performance IoT systems that allow people and companies to make more informed decisions. Right now the sector is moving from data automation for better information to support decisions, to the automation of actions informed by real-time data ”.
The economic details of the agreement were not disclosed, but it is a project to be cataloged in the development of Intel's Internet of Things and automotive area. Yogitech is a company owned by Atlante Ventures; following the acquisition, the Italian team becomes part of the Intel group.
Yogitech was born in Pisa in 2000, and has since become a well known company in specialized environments for the development of hardware and software solutions to improve the security of electronic devices. A few examples? Braking systems, airbags and other electronic safety devices. Thanks to the purchase, Intel is confident that it will further strengthen itself in advanced driving assistance systems, robotics and other Internet of Things systems.
