Continental AG has announced its Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit, based on Xilinx All Programmable technology and developed in collaboration with Xilinx. According to the company, “…the Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit will enable Continental’s customers to get to market faster by building upon the Open Computing Language (OpenCL) framework…” and “…offers a scalable product family for assisted and automated driving fulfilling the highest safety requirements (ASIL D) by 2019.”

Continental’s incorporation of Xilinx All Programmable technology “provides developers the ability to optimize software for the appropriate processing engine or to create their own hardware accelerators with the Xilinx All Programmable technology. The result is the ultimate freedom to optimize performance, without sacrificing latency, power dissipation, or the flexibility to move software algorithms between the integrated chips, as the project progresses.”

 

“Our Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit will enable automotive engineers to create their own differentiated solutions for machine learning, and sensor fusion. Xilinx’s All Programmable Technology was chosen as it offers flexibility and scalability to address the ever-changing and new requirements along the way to fully automated self-driving cars,” said Karl Haupt, Head of Continental’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems business unit. “For Continental, the Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit is a central element for implementing the required functional safety architecture and, at the same time, a host for the comprehensive environment model and driving functions needed for automated driving.”

 

Continental will be exhibiting at next week’s CES in Las Vegas.
