The race to produce a true Category 5 autonomous vehicle has highlighted the need for innovative thinking related to internal and more importantly external vehicle communication. The volume and depth of the data exchanges required, not to mention the analysis requirement all point towards moving the heavy processing to new forms of liquid-cooled intelligent roadside furniture.
We know technology is evolving as software, hardware and services converge. This, of course, presents challenges, but also opportunities and new ventures. We face significant commercial and regulatory changes that will drive faster IT refreshes, server density and the need to consume fewer resources natural and otherwise per server.
Sheffield-based IT Company, Iceotope, has today announced the first installation of their liquid cooled computer system at the Rolls Royce facility inside the Institute of Innovation and Sustainable Engineering (IISE).
