Airspeeder has formed a new collaboration with Intel that brings its computing technologies to flying car racing.
Airspeeder believes the Intel Core processor and Intel Xeon scalable processors will help shape the sport to maximize its appeal to racers and fans alike.
The new strategic sponsorship deal was revealed in a joint presentation at the Motorsport Show in Adelaide, March 25th 2023, where Alauda Aeronautics unveiled its new Mk4 Airspeeder, the first-ever piloted craft to take part in the Airspeeder race series.
Matt Pearson, CEO Alauda Aeronautics & Airspeeder, said: “We’re incredibly excited to have Intel on board. The technology, insight and innovation its bringing to Airspeeder will transform our racing series, making it even more immersive and dynamic for pilots and spectacular for our audiences. Just as importantly, Intels pervasive connectivity perfectly matches our vision of an always-connected, vertical-enabled future. Through the actionable insights provided by AI, we can achieve next-level eVTOL performance and control, which we see as the key to unlocking the future of private air mobility.”
Andrew Mclean, Intel Managing Director ANZ, added: “This is another example of intel continuing to deliver the compute power needed to stretch the notion of what’s possible, make what was once science fiction a reality, and transform the way we live our lives. Helping Airspeeder bring this new concept to life has the potential to not only change the way we race, but also opens up endless possibilities in urban mobility.”
