Intel is working with Indian engineering company L&T Technology Services to develop scalable edge-AI for a cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) applications.

L&T’s expertise in the domains of connected vehicles and smart transportation systems has been pivotal in the development and implementation of communication technologies such as telematics, ADAS and C-2VX. By harnessing Intel’s edge platform, including built-in AI runtime with OpenVino for real-time AI inferencing optimisation, L&T wants to empower on-premises and hybrid AI for traffic management and emergency safety in smart cities and transportation.

These scenarios typically demand networking and AI analytics at the edge, meeting real-world needs with low latency, locality and cost requirements.

This collaboration lays the groundwork for enabling intelligent transportation systems.

Intel’s edge platform is commercial software that is changing the way developers engineer, deploy and manage distributed edge infrastructure and applications. It offers an ecosystem with modular building blocks, premium service and support, providing developers with an all-in-one option for their edge computing needs.

Intel’s approach is horizontal, which means it is designed to scale infrastructure across various industries, a departure from the traditional vertical approaches.

“L&T is delighted to collaborate with Intel on the launch of their new edge platform, which promises to democratise access to edge-AI,” said Abhishek Sinha, chief operating officer at L&T. “By running seamlessly on standard hardware and featuring built-in edge-native AI runtime powered by OpenVino for inferencing, this platform embodies innovation and efficiency. With deep-rooted hardware optimisation at its core, our enterprise customers can trust Intel’s edge platform to propel them into a future of unparalleled performance and possibilities.”

Pallavi Mahajan, Intel ( corporate vice president, added: “Industries like transportation and smart cities will benefit from technologies that expedite the design and implementation of vehicle-to-vehicle transportation, road safety, accident prevention and enhanced mobility. The collaboration with L&T on Intel’s edge platform will simplify the exchange of critical information and streamline infrastructure management to improve results and lower TCO for customers.”

L&T ( is a subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro focused on engineering and R&D services. It offers consultancy, design, development and testing services across the product and process development life cycle. Headquartered in India, it has more than 23,200 employees spread across 22 global design centres, 28 global sales offices and 105 innovation labs.
