- Ambarella’s CV3-AD family of AI central domain controller systems-on-chip will be used to develop autonomous driving high-performance computing platforms
- Through this initial cooperation, the two companies seek to address the needs of the global automotive market
Edge AI semiconductor company, Ambarella and an autonomous driving tech company, Hyperview recently announced that Hyperview has selected Ambarella’s CV3-AD family of AI central domain controller systems-on-chip (SoCs) to develop high-performance computing (HPC) autonomous driving platforms. As per the official communication, the focus of this development will be on pairing CV3-AD SoCs with Hyperview’s software stack to provide production-ready perception, automated driving and parking solutions, for implementation by Tier-1s and OEMs in autonomous driving systems. Hyperview’s vision for this cooperation is to build advanced autonomous driving products and help create the next generation of transportation.
Hyperview stated that it is combining its advanced hardware design, software algorithm and system integration capabilities with Ambarella’s scalable, high performance and power-efficient CV3-AD family of AI central domain controller SoCs. Building on its experience in full-stack autonomous driving technologies, this combination enables the integration and implementation of high-level autonomous driving systems and applications.
Notably, Hyperview’s automated-driving central domain control unit (DCU) can now collect more comprehensive sensing data and improve processing speeds, thereby increasing recognition accuracy and realizing more autonomous driving functions. Also, it is learnt that the CV3-AD’s 5nm process technology reduces the power consumption of the system. All in all, the partners expect that it can simplify automotive thermal-management design and lower power management complexity while decreasing system costs and the mechanical complexity of vehicles.
As per the founder and CEO of Hyperview, Dr Liu Feilong, the market demand for high-level autonomous driving is ever-increasing with the continuing advancements in vehicle intelligence. Dr Liu stated, “Through this collaboration with Ambarella, we intend to develop an intelligent driving central DCU with high performance and low power consumption. We plan to achieve this by combining Ambarella’s CV3-AD family of AI SoCs with our production-ready Navigate-on-Pilot (NoP) ADAS driving software and automated parking software, which will facilitate the mass production of high-level autonomous driving solutions. With this cooperation as the starting point, over time we intend to deepen our collaboration with Ambarella in order to expand our global market and oversea business while displaying Chinese innovation on the global stage and empowering the autonomy transformation of the vehicle industry at home and abroad.”
Fermi Wang, President and CEO of Ambarella remarked, “Our goal for this cooperation between Ambarella and Hyperview is to enable global tier-1s and OEMs with a new generation of advanced autonomous driving systems. By selecting our CV3-AD SoC family, Hyperview will be able to create AD solutions that offer the automotive industry superior performance, lower power consumption and significant bill-of-material improvements.”
2018-born Hyperview, an autonomous driving tech company, works to provide advanced automated-driving solutions, including in-house domain control unit hardware, as well as perception, planning and control software algorithms, that span the L1 to L4 autonomy levels.
Ambarella claims that its products are used in a wide variety of human vision and edge AI applications, including video security, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), electronic mirrors, drive recorders, driver/cabin monitoring, autonomous driving and robotics applications.
