Veoneer Joins Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium to Accelerate Development of Autonomous Vehicles
20 November 2019
Veoneer, Inc., the world's largest pure-play company focused on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving (AD), has joined the Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC) to speed autonomous driving vehicle development.
Veoneer joins leading OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and semiconductor companies, such as Arm, Bosch, Continental, DENSO, GM, NVIDIA, NXP, Renesas and Toyota, in their collaborative effort to accelerate the delivery of safe and affordable autonomous vehicles at scale.
This is in line with Veoneer's strategic objective to be an industry leader towards collaborative and autonomous driving using a Human Centric Approach. The Company will leverage its technical expertise to deliver high quality solutions meeting customer expectations, with high performance, robustness, precision and scalability. A standardized compute platform capable of covering unsupervised autonomous driving, while being able to scale down to supervised solutions allowing software portability, will be key for addressing the future market needs in a sustainable way.
The primary purpose of the AVCC is to develop a conceptual compute platform architecture, its hardware requirements and software APIs to build an autonomous vehicle ecosystem guided by the objectives of portability, interoperability, scalability and a balance between performance and cost. The conceptual architecture will address a transition from today's prototype systems to deployment at scale.
The path to delivering autonomous vehicles is long, with several technological complexities and obstacles that need to be overcome before the deployment of autonomous vehicles.
"Being a participant in the AVCC fits our strategy to support OEMs with cost-efficient solutions and systems. A conceptual, scalable compute platform will play a critical role in the advancement of autonomous vehicles. We are glad to join AVCC's strong body of expertise and knowledge to help solve the technological challenges we see today," said Nishant Batra, CTO at Veoneer.
"The AVCC is excited to welcome Veoneer in the Consortium as a Core Member. We value Veoneer expertise in the autonomous vehicle space and the Consortium is looking forward for their technical contributions to the working groups and to overall AVCC activities," said Massimo Osella (General Motors), Chairman of AVCC.
