Open Source Software for Car Computer

I would like to know the requirements and the state of the art of computer system for autonomous vehicles. I could think out following aspects of the computer.

1) Computing Power for
- integrating sensor signal and analyzing data from sensors
- image recognition from cameras
- drive-planning considering trip plans and traffic information

2) Communication Capability for
- interacting with the infrastructure of the intelligent road, such as traffic signals.
- collaborating with other cars running at the same time on the way
- interfacing humans and their devices such as phones and smart watches in the car
- getting accident reporting and propagating road information

I would like to know Car Computer is a buzz word already. If it is not, I claim the viral tongue of the word.
