Arriver introduces the features of its next-generation software stack for Automated Driver Assistance and (ADAS) and semi-autonomous driving.
FREMONT, CA: Arriver recently introduced the features of its next-generation software stack for Automated Driver Assistance and (ADAS) and semi-autonomous driving. The presentation at Qualcomm's annual Automotive Summit by Arriver's Head of Technology, Salah Hadi, explains how Arriver can have a leading software stack allowing Level 1 ADAS to Level 3 semi-autonomous driving in 2024.
ArriverTM develops the next-generation software stack is an open, versatile, and scalable solution. The automotive manufacturers and automotive suppliers can adjust and customize solutions according to their requirements on this robust software platform depending on the individual product development strategies.
The software stack has a perception stack of the fifth generation developed on almost two decades of vision-based perception growth. The 8-megapixel cameras of the fifth generation offer high resolution, leading to higher frame rates and providing a more comprehensive 120-degree view of the field compared to today's solutions.
The Arriver stack offers full NCAP ratings and comes with features such as Automatic Cruise Control, Pilot Assist, Glare-Free High Beam, Lane Keep Assist, and Traffic Jam Assist powered by state-of-the-art deep learning-based tracking functions such as full 3D detection of cars, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, and traffic signs.
The development utilizes the Arriver's next-generation Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), which is up to 100 times more efficient than the present generation and will provide greater precision necessary for Level 3 applications and beyond when the car takes over the driver's responsibility.
Arriver software will have updated fusion abilities, allowing for simultaneous feedback from various sensors beyond vision, including radar, lidar, driver tracking, thermal sensing, and ultrasonic sensor for the short-range (parking) application. The second-generation drive strategy of Arriver, which will control the vehicles' decision-making system and the actuation of the movement of the car, would be built and provided as part of the complete software solution.
In addition, the drive policy stack would allow for up to 12 cameras, providing a high-resolution, real-time picture of the world around the car. In most cases, this ability will open the way for fully autonomous driving and be Level 3 and higher capable since its implementation in manufacturing vehicles by 2024.
