The company’s Intelligent Signal Processing software delivers 10X plus increase in automotive chip, communications and learning performance
Teraki, a technology leader in AI and edge processing, on Thursday, launched its latest AI and edge processing technology to meet the exploding data analytics demands of the automotive electronics industry.
The company also announced that Infineon’s AURIX microcontrollers will be the first to market with an integration of Teraki’s breakthrough AI technology that will improve the safety of autonomous vehicles. Infineon is a world leader in semiconductor solutions.
The Berlin, Germany-based startup claims that its AI-based Intelligent Signal Processing software delivers a more than tenfold increase in automotive chip, communications and learning performance, making highly accurate AI applications possible in embedded environments.
Biggest challenge faced by automotive system designers
Ritesh Tyagi, head of the Infineon Silicon Valley Automotive Innovation Center, pointed out that the biggest challenge faced by automotive system designers when implementing AI-driven applications is finding the balance between growing amounts of sensor data and the constraints of communication and processing technology.
Using Infineon’s AURIX microcontrollers that support ASIL-D systems, Teraki has come out with an innovative approach that significantly improves data analytics and enables true low-latency mobility services, he asserted.
“For applications such as accident detection, driver behavior identification and predictive maintenance, the combination of these technologies translates into greater accuracy in detecting and responding to real-time events, resulting in higher levels of system reliability,” Tyagi added.
Teraki believes that its latest AI based technology will enable the automotive industry to develop new, innovative and cost-effective ways to use the vast amount of data generated by in-vehicle sensors and control units (ECUs, MCUs, TCUs) to improve vehicle safety and autonomy at lower operational costs.
Daniel Richart, co-founder and CEO of Teraki, said that their new software can work with the limited processing capabilities of current microcontrollers on the market.
The Global Automotive Electronics Market is booming and is being estimated to reach $395 billion by 2024, with 70 percent of cars sold in 2025 expected to be connected cars, according to Teraki.
