Intel Atom Chips Manage Car Propulsion System

The BLOODHOUND SSC will employ three Atom chips to manage the calculations behind the car's propulsion systems, including a jet engine from the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft and the largest hybrid rocket ever designed in Europe. Given the speeds the car will be going, each processor will be checking the others' calculations to guarantee there are no errors. Another processor will also be used to relay this and other status information, stored on an internal SSD chip, back to the driver on the cockpit displays.
