StradVision, D3 Engineering unveil automotive front camera solution at CES 2021

StradVision offers six important features of SVNet to D3 Engineering's virtual demonstrator of autonomous vehicle equipment platform


StradVisionStradVision has announced its collaboration with D3 Engineering on an automotive front camera solution.

According to Stradvision, a leading innovator in AI-based camera perception software for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicles (AV), its new solution delivers market-leading performance and price efficiency.

Junhwan Kim, CEO of StradVision, said, “We are delighted to have a great opportunity to showcase the future of autonomous driving technology with our industry leading partner, at CES 2021.”

He added that SVNet is one of the most efficient vision processing solutions offers groundbreaking AI-based recognition performance with less consumption of computing power, and we believe our solution will accelerate autonomous driving vehicle comes to our daily lives.

Jerome Barczykowski, Business Development Operations Manager at D3 Engineering, said, “We are excited to continue working together with StradVision to offer market-leading Automotive Front Camera solutions on our DesignCore platform.”

According to Barczykowski, “the DesignCore platform incorporates proven collections of hardware, software, applications, and testing. Combined with StradVision algorithms, the solution accelerates time-to-market while reducing the cost and risk of production product development.”

The solution integrates a D3 DesignCore platform for product development with StradVision’s deep learning based front camera software ‘SVNet’.

In this partnership, StradVision provides 6 key perception features of SVNet including Lane Detection, Traffic Sign Detection, Traffic Light Detection, Vehicle Detection, Pedestrian Detection, and Free Space Detection to this virtual demo platform.

The solution can be viewed at CES 2021 on D3 Engineering’s virtual D.A.V.E. (Demonstrator of Autonomous Vehicle Equipment) platform. Visitors to the virtual platform can experience a guided virtual ride from on-call D3 team members during CES exhibitor showcase hours.

Advancement of autonomous vehicles

StradVision is accelerating the advancement of autonomous vehicles through SVNet, an AI-based object recognition software. Compared to competitors, SVNet achieves much higher efficiency in memory usage and energy consumption, and can be customized and optimized to any system on a chip (SoC), thanks to its patented and cutting-edge Deep Neural Network.

The software also works seamlessly with other sensors such as LiDAR and RADAR to achieve surround vision.

At present, SVNet is used in mass production models of ADAS and autonomous driving vehicles that support safety function Levels 2 to 4, and will be deployed in more than 8.8 million vehicles worldwide.
