Info

Micron Technology, Inc. is an American global corporation based in Boise, Idaho which produces many forms of semiconductor devices, including dynamic random-access memory, flash memory, and solid-state drives. Micron and Intel together created IM Flash Technologies, which produces NAND flash memory. Micron was named one of Thomson Reuters top 100 global innovators in 2012[4] and 2013. Micron Technology is also ranked among the Top 5 Semiconductor producing companies in the world.
 
Micron provides advanced automotive memory solutions that meet stringent quality, reliability and compliance requirements. A car may be the most powerful computer people own. With infotainment, advanced driver assistance and powertrain control systems, cars come with more processing power than laptops. And all of that processing power requires memory made for automotive applications — from a memory manufacturer that knows automotive.

Autonomous car
 
An autonomous car (also known as a driverless car, self-driving car, robotic car) and unmanned ground vehicle is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input.Autonomous cars use a variety of techniques to detect their surroundings, such as radar, laser light, GPS, odometry and computer vision.

CEO

Sanjay Mehrotra is co-founder of SanDisk and served as the company's President and Chief Executive Officer until it was purchased by Western Digital in 2016.[1][2] In April 2017, it was announced Mehrotra would be the next CEO of Micron Technology, taking over from Mark Durcan.[2]

Autonomous Cars

An autonomous car (also known as a driverless car, self-driving car, robotic car[1]) and unmanned ground vehicle is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input.[2]

Autonomous cars use a variety of techniques to detect their surroundings, such as radar, laser light, GPS, odometry and computer vision. Advanced control systems interpret sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signage.[3][4] Autonomous cars must have control systems that are capable of analyzing sensory data to distinguish between different cars on the road.[5]

The potential benefits of autonomous cars include reduced mobility and infrastructure costs, increased safety, increased mobility, increased customer satisfaction and reduced crime. Specifically a significant reduction in traffic collisions;[6][7] the resulting injuries; and related costs, including less need for insurance. Autonomous cars are predicted to increase traffic flow;[8] provide enhanced mobility for children, the elderly,[9] disabled and the poor; relieve travelers from driving and navigation chores; lower fuel consumption; significantly reduce needs for parking space;[10] reduce crime;[11] and facilitate business models for transportation as a service, especially via the sharing economy.[12][13] This shows the vast disruptive potential of the emerging technology.[14] A frequently cited paper by Michael Osborne and Carl Benedikt Frey found that autonomous cars would make many jobs redundant.[15]

Among the main obstacles to widespread adoption are technological challenges; disputes concerning liability; the time period needed to replace the existing stock of vehicles; resistance by individuals to forfeit control; consumer safety concerns; implementation of a workable legal framework and establishment of government regulations; risk of loss of privacy and security concerns, such as hackers or terrorism; concerns about the resulting loss of driving-related jobs in the road transport industry; and risk of increased suburbanization as travel becomes less costly and time-consuming. Many of these issues are due to the fact that autonomous objects, for the first time, allow computers to roam freely, with many related safety and security concerns.
