Intel creates a dedicated autonomous driving technology group
“The new Intel ADG will be headed up by Intel vet Doug Davis, who previously led the IoT group and is putting off his retirement after 30 years with the chipmaker to act as SVP and strategic lead for the group. Reporting to Davis will be Kathy Winter, who comes to Intel from new partner Delphi and will act as VP and GM of the ADG, handling more of the day-to-day responsibilities of managing the team.
ADG’s formation is part of a larger management re-org at Intel, but the introduction of a dedicated vertical focused on autonomous driving is probably the most significant of the shifts overall. Intel recently announced that it’s making $250 million bet on self-driving tech via its Intel Capital investment arm, and Tuesday’s earlier announcement regarding its chip supply relationship with Mobileye and Delphi shows it has grand designs on the emerging space.”
