Arriver has unveiled the capabilities of its next generation software stack for Advanced Driver Assistance and (ADAS) and semi-autonomous driving.
Arriver’s Head of Technology, Salah Hadi, presented it at Qualcomm’s annual Automotive Summit outlines how Arriver will provide a leading software stack enabling Level 1 ADAS to Level 3 semi-autonomous driving in 2024.
The company is developing this next generation software stack to be an open, flexible and scalable solution which will allow automotive manufacturers and automotive suppliers to, based on a robust software platform, tailor and customize solutions to their specific needs based on their individual product development strategies.
The stack consists of a fifth-generation perception stack which is built on almost two decades of development of vision-based perception. The fifth generation will provide high resolution, using 8-megapixel cameras, allowing for higher framerates and provide a wider field of view of 120 degrees, compared to today’s solutions.
It will provide full NCAP ratings and include features like Automatic Cruise Control, Pilot Assist, Glare Free High Beam, Lane Keep Assist, and Traffic Jam Assist supported by state of the art deep learning based detection functions like full 3D vehicle detection, pedestrians, bicycles, motor cycles as well as traffic signs, traffic lights. On top of that it will enable innovative solutions for determining drive free space and challenging police restricted and road work scenarios.
The development makes use of the next generation of Arriver’s Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), which is up to 100 time more powerful than the current generation and will allow for the higher accuracy necessary for Level 3 applications and beyond, when the car takes over responsibility for the driver.
The software will include up-to-date fusion capabilities, catering for simultaneous input from a number of different sensor types beyond vision, including radar, lidar, driver monitoring, thermal sensing, and ultrasonic sensor for short range (parking) application.
The company’s second generation drive policy; which will drive the vehicles decision making and actuation of the cars movement; will be developed and offered as part of the full software solution.
