SemiEngineering published an article I wrote this week about how the USDOT Smart City Challenge Smart City Challenge will help accelerate automotive semiconductor innovation.
You can read it here.
The article spells out why government funding will help create a better proving ground for new autonomous vehicle nad infrastructure technologies than traditional field trials and closed proving grounds. I also was able to dig our more information on what exactly Mobileye, NXP Semiconductors and Continental Automotive are providing to the program.
In case you are searching for it, the article is titled, "USDOT Smart City Challenge: Columbus Drives Future of Automotive Semiconductor Development".
