Visteon Introduces Autonomous Driving Platform for Self-Driving Technology


Scalable central computing system for Level 3 and above autonomous driving solutions


Visteon an automotive cockpit technology company "“ is unveiled its DriveCore autonomous driving platform at CES 2018. Designed to accelerate the development and commercialization of autonomous driving technology, DriveCore is a solution to allow automakers to build autonomous driving solutions quickly and in an open collaboration model.

DriveCore was designed as a complete technology platform, consisting 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. Building on Visteon's success with a centralized computing approach, DriveCore will provide automakers a fail-safe domain controller, with a high degree of computing power scalability, which supports the integration of data from multiple camera, 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 radar, camera and Lidar sensors," explained Sachin Lawande, president and CEO of Visteon. "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."

Consistent with the goal of creating an open collaboration model for automakers, Visteon is also announcing four new technology partners as part of the DriveCoreTM introduction:

· DeepScale uses deep learning to create an integrated model of the environment in real-time, from any combination of sensors. Then, DeepScale's deep neural networks (DNNs) add the perception capabilities needed for automated driving.

· STEER provides a fully automated parking solution, in which the car drops off passengers at a designated point, drives itself to the nearest automated parking zone, waits for a "summon signal," then drives to the designated pick-up point.

· StradVision deploys machine learning algorithms to build advanced object detection and recognition software.

· Automotive Artificial Intelligence provides a graphical simulation environment, offering intelligent traffic and traffic scenarios, which runs in conjunction with DriveCore™ Studio.

"Successful implementation of autonomous driving technologies will require collaboration from multiple companies offering specific expertise in different aspects of the solution," said Visteon Chief Technology Officer Markus Schupfner. "At CES, we are showing how our investment in new technologies such as machine learning and collaboration with leading tech partners will help drive the future of autonomous driving."

Visteon hosted demonstrations of DriveCoreTM at its booth, where it will also showcased 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 displayed products that will underpin the epic shift toward connected cars and autonomous vehicles.
