Why software-driven scalable hardware enables better AD
Written by Tony King-Smith The choice of hardware platform for tomorrow’s ever-more-complex vehicles is a daunting prospect. Many designers select the most flexible hardware they can find, as it has the best chance to accommodate software developed in the years ahead. While that works well for general-purpose products like mobile phones and PCs, is it also the best choice for automotive AD (automated driving) subsystems — a far more highly constrained single-application system? For aiMotive, a deep understanding of likely future trajectories of software and algorithms driving true co-design of the software and hardware for the AD hardware platform will deliver the highest performance and safest solution while minimizing costs.
