Manufacturing self-driving cars always brings lots of challenges, especially in the Research and Development process. There are a countless number of aspects both manufacturers and businesses need to take into consideration when setting up a computing platform for this kind of advanced vehicles, such as safety, data management, user interface, power consumption, and many other aspects.
Therefore, it’s too difficult for only one company to accomplish the entire manufacturing process. To handle this issue, tech and automotive businesses have teamed up with each other to form the Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (also known as AVCC) to establish a platform which can boost the deployment of autonomous and automated vehicles at large scale.
The members of AVCC include Toyota, NXP Semiconductors, NVIDIA, General Motors, DENSO, Continental, Bosch, and ARM. Along with the cooperation, these businesses hope to tackle the biggest challenges concerning self-driving cars. Accordingly, their first step will aim to develop vital recommendations for the computing platform’s system architecture.
The ARM's Senior Vice President Dipti Vachani stated, “The future of mobility and the safe, scalable deployment of advanced driver assistance systems to fully autonomous vehicles for mass production requires unprecedented industry collaboration.”
The ARM PR Director Alex Harrod said, "The group brings together a unique combination of expertise and a shared goal.” In addition, he also added that these businesses will always welcome support from any other interested members, as well as parties in the automotive ecosystem.
