Automotive cockpit technology firm Visteon Corporation will unveil its DriveCore autonomous driving platform at CES 2018. The new platform allows automakers to build autonomous driving solutions quickly and in an open collaboration model. DriveCore consists of the hardware, in-vehicle middleware and PC-based software toolset needed to develop machine learning algorithms for autonomous driving applications of Level 3 and above. It will provide automakers with a fail-safe domain controller, with a high degree of computing power scalability, which supports the integration of data from multiple cameras, Lidar and radar sensors.
“To meet the computing demands of Level 3-plus solutions, autonomous systems will need highly scalable levels of processing power and the ability to perform sensor fusion across multiple radars, camera and Lidar sensors. DriveCore is the first open platform in the industry that offers highly scalable computing power and software to perform late sensor fusion to enable rapid development of these autonomous systems,” said Sachin Lawande, president and CEO of Visteon.
Visteon will be hosting demonstrations of DriveCore at its booth, where it will also be showcasing solutions that will speed the transition to an all-digital vehicle cockpit and, ultimately, autonomous driving. From fully reconfigurable instrument clusters and the latest-generation, high-definition (HD) digital display technologies to driver monitoring, ADAS integration and a virtualized instrument cluster domain, Visteon will be displaying products that will underpin the epic shift toward connected cars and autonomous vehicles, said the company in a statement.
