Intel Collaborative Research Institutes (ICRI)

Collaborative Research Institutes are large and longer-term collaborations that aim at jointly exploring a new space. The goal is to jointly produce leading scientific results, ecosystem visibility, mindshare, and business impact for Intel and its ecosystem partners. The goal of Intel Collaborative Research Institutes is to foster collaboration between partner research organizations to advance the state of the art. Together with Intel Labs researchers on-site, the participants design, prototype, and publish new and innovative research, and validate these ideas in real-world scenarios. The focus is on practical innovations that enhance the state of the art and have the potential to enhance the security and resilience of real-world autonomous systems. To give partners the freedom to explore, we appreciate success in many forms. Each Intel Institute has an Intel team on-site to support and guide research to ensure success of each Institute.

Safe Automated Vehicles (SAVe)

Trustworthy operation of Automated Vehicles (AV) in a safe way is a major bottleneck for commercial introduction of this new technology. Consumers must feel comfortable with AVs or they will not purchase them, and regulators need to build and approve methodologies to prove safety of AVs. The requirement to build AV safety expertise has only recently been recognized and is still a young scientific subject.
