BloodHound 1000mph SSC car – Intel ATOM powered

Last year Intel signed a deal with Bloodhound to become their official IT Partner. Intel have been hard at work with the guys creating a high tech car which runs on ATOM processors.

Recently KitGuru sat and chatted with Alistair Kemp, Intels friendly PR Manager – he was keen to point out Intel’s excitement regarding this project.

The concept was a fun idea from the start but it had a twin goal of helping to ramp up an education programme to take Bloodhound into schools and universities.

The BloodHound SSC - 1000mph and Atom powered

Today several milestones have been achieved.

  • The BloodHound SSC car would feature Intel Atom processors that acted as part of the stability and control systems within.
  • Intel have committed 26 volunteers from among their UK workforce to become Bloodhound Ambassadors, taking the programme to public events and into schools throughout the UK.
  • The unveiling of the “BloodHound Experience”, a simulator designed to let members of the public experience what it takes to pilot a car which is designed to travel at over 1,000 mph.

Here are some videos courtesy of Intel which we think you will find entertaining.
