Intel has announced that its Atom processors will be used in the world’s fastest car, the Bloodhound SSC.
The Bloodhound SSC is a jet and rocket engine-powered supersonic car that is expected to cross the 1000mph mark.
Atom-powered advanced engine controls and driver information displays will be used by the driver to get crucial information about the condition of the vehicle and performance. Three Atom processors in the Bloodhound SSC will handle the calculations behind the car's hybrid propulsion systems.
Bloodhound project’s Chief Engineer Mark Chapman said that they selected Intel’s Atom processors as they were impressed with their performance, power-saving capacity and resilience.
Speaking on the topic, he added, "This is an important engineering milestone, and yet another great example of the close collaboration between Intel and Bloodhound."
One of the Intel’s Atom processor in the Bloodhound SSC will help Wing Commander Andy Green in keeping the car on a smooth trajectory.
