- The partnership will result in superior accuracy, robustness and low latency of AI-based real-time sensor fusion
- AI and simulation are key technologies to help build future-proof products and development processes
- The results of this collaboration will enable both companies to help customers deliver more advanced sensor fusion solutions to OEMs and Tier1s
ON Semiconductor and AImotive have jointly announced that they will work together to develop prototype sensor fusion platforms for automotive applications. The collaboration aims to help customers explore integrated solutions for future generations of sensor data conditioning hardware platforms.
The companies plan to develop a series of hardware platform demonstrators, combining ON Semiconductor’s latest HD camera and radar sensor and pre-processor chipsets and use it with AImotive’s advanced AI-based perception algorithms, hardware acceleration, and simulation capabilities.
About the partnership
The partnership will result in superior accuracy, robustness and low latency of AI-based real-time sensor fusion and will utilize AImotive’s aiWare hardware NN (Neural Network) acceleration IP in FPGA-based prototypes, as well as modules from its aiDrive software portfolio and its aiSim simulation environment.
“Our customers have been asking us to help them deliver better performance by combining different sensors. When undertaking such challenges, AI and simulation are key technologies to help build future-proof products and development processes,” said Davide Santo, sr. director and general manager, Automotive Radar Sensing Solutions, Intelligent Sensing Group at ON Semiconductor.
He added, “We recognize AImotive’s considerable expertise and industry recognition in these technologies and more for autonomous driving. We believe the results of this collaboration will enable both companies to help customers deliver more advanced sensor fusion solutions to OEMs and Tier1s.”
“We are delighted to be working with an automotive industry leader like ON Semiconductor to explore future AI-based sensor fusion solutions,” said Laszlo Kishonti, CEO AImotive.
He further stated, “Together we can demonstrate that, with the right chips and algorithms, more highly integrated sensor fusion solutions can achieve superior performance, while also being a cost-effective and practical solution for volume production.”
