You can count Intel among the companies getting behind the self-driving car trend. The company’s investment wing announced that it’s putting money into ZMP Inc., a Japan-based company that’s developing autonomous driving technologies.

Intel Capital did not disclose the amount it’s putting forth, but the money is coming from the Intel Capital Connected Car Fund and will be used to help ZMP push forward with its R&D.

ZMP’s portfolio includes car robotics platforms, sensor systems, field testing, connected car informatics, as well as aspects of the autonomous driving experience that include entertainment. “Its RoboCar Series helps customers develop autonomous driving and advanced safety technologies and driver assist systems, and collect, measure and analyze their vehicle information and external environmental data,” wrote Intel in a press release.

Make no mistake, ZMP wants to develop a fully autonomous car. Intel wants in on that market, and ZMP wants to use Intel’s technology to increase the compute capabilities and parallel processing tech needing to bring the self-driving car to life.
