TIER IV launches A.D.E.E.A, an E/E architecture design solution for software-defined autonomous vehicles

7 December 2023

TIER IV, a pioneer in open-source autonomous driving (AD) technology, announces the launch of A.D.E.E.A (Autonomous Driving Electric and Electronic Architecture), a solution that supports the design and development of E/E (Electric/Electronic) architecture for autonomous vehicles. Comprising a reference design of E/E architecture, which is necessary for the development of software-defined vehicles (SDVs), A.D.E.E.A can be customized based on the requirements of automaker partners, helping them accelerate the development of autonomous vehicles.

E/E architecture is necessary to develop SDVs that are autonomous vehicles designed around AD software. In addition to creating AD software, TIER IV is involved in the design and development of components and features for AD vehicles, including:

ADS (Autonomous Driving System)
VCU (Vehicle Control Unit)
IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment)
Together with partners, TIER IV will continue to develop VCUs, operating systems, and electrification modules, aiming to supply high-quality E/E architecture for autonomous vehicles.
