Autonomous driving technology company Hyperview has selected Ambarella’s CV3-AD portfolio of AI central domain controller systems-on-chip (SoCs) to develop high-performance computing (HPC) autonomous driving platforms.
The aim is to pair the CV3-AD SoCs with Hyperview’s software stack to deliver production-ready perception, automated driving and parking solutions, for implementation by Tier 1s and OEMs in autonomous driving (AD) systems.
Using its experience in full-stack autonomous driving technologies, Hyperview will combine 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. This will enable the integration and implementation of high-level AD systems and applications.
Empowered by Ambarella’s CV3-AD family of SoCs, Hyperview’s automated-driving central domain control unit (DCU) is now capable of collecting more comprehensive sensing data and improving processing speeds. This results in increased recognition accuracy and the realization of more AD functions.
The CV3-AD SoC range integrates Ambarella’s next-generation CVflow AI computing architecture, which provides optimal processing for Hyperview’s perception and planning algorithm, because of its higher software execution efficiency and lower power consumption compared with GPU and DSP architectures. The CV3-AD’s 5nm process technology further reduces the power consumption of the system. As a result, Hyperview’s CV3-AD-based central DCU can significantly simplify automotive thermal-management design and lower power management complexity, while decreasing system costs and the mechanical complexity of vehicles.
“With the continuing advancements in vehicle intelligence, the market demand for high-level autonomous driving is ever increasing,” said Dr Liu Feilong, founder and CEO, Hyperview. “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.”
“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,” said Fermi Wang, president and CEO, Ambarella. “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.”
