Veoneer, a pure-play company focused on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving (AD), has joined the Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC) to speed autonomous driving vehicle development.
The Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC) is a group of automotive and technology industry leaders coming together to help accelerate the delivery of safe and affordable autonomous vehicles at scale. AVCC will define a reference architecture and platform to meet the autonomous performance goals within the power, thermal and size constraints of a vehicle. This computing platform will be designed specifically to move today’s prototype systems to deployment at scale. The group will also develop the requirements for software APIs for each building block in an autonomous system.
The AVCC will be defining, educating and publishing for the benefit of all. The consortium brings together the expertise, knowledge and innovation with a shared goal and focused strategy. Developing an autonomous ecosystem will help the automotive industry to work together. The AVCC will facilitate and manage working groups to share ideas and study common technological challenges.
Veoneer joins leading OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and semiconductor companies, such as Arm, Bosch, Continental, DENSO, GM, NVIDIA, NXP, Renesas and Toyota, in their collaborative effort to accelerate the delivery of safe and affordable autonomous vehicles at scale.
This is in line with Veoneer’s strategic objective to be an industry leader towards collaborative and autonomous driving using a Human Centric Approach. The Company will leverage its technical expertise to deliver high quality solutions meeting customer expectations, with high performance, robustness, precision and scalability. A standardized compute platform capable of covering unsupervised autonomous driving, while being able to scale down to supervised solutions allowing software portability, will be key for addressing the future market needs in a sustainable way.
