Visteon Corporation has announced a new technical center in Silicon Valley which will lead the company’s development of artificial intelligence for autonomous vehicles. Visteon’s breakthrough autonomous vehicle program will apply machine learning technology for accurately detecting and classifying objects in a vehicle’s path and planning the vehicle’s movements, resulting in fully trained driving control systems.
The recently opened facility in Santa Clara, California, will work closely with global Visteon tech centers to develop excellence in artificial intelligence software, advanced driver awareness systems (ADAS) and deep machine learning.
These efforts will support Visteon’s approach to autonomous driving, which encompasses three key elements:
- Creating fail-safe, centralized domain controller hardware leveraging Visteon’s industry-first cockpit domain controller, Smartcore.
- Unlocking the innovation potential of algorithm developers through an easy-to-access open framework and test/simulation environment.
- Applying artificial intelligence for object detection, classification, perception and decision-making in future autonomous vehicles.
