Veoneer introduces Autonomous Driving Supercomputer based on Zenuity software and NVIDIA processing power
Stockholm, Sweden, October 10, 2018: Veoneer, Inc. (NYSE: VNE and SSE: VNE SDB), the world’s largest pure-play company focused on Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving (AD), has developed the “Zeus” supercomputer - designed to meet the requirements for level 4 Autonomous Driving with Zenuity’s Autonomous Driving software stack, based on the NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Xavier running NVIDIA DRIVE OS.
The supercomputer Zeus is an ADAS/AD ECU, a “brain” that fuses data from cameras, radars and other sensors, interprets the situation and takes required action. Zeus has been designed to meet the requirements of level 4, High Automation, as defined by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), meaning the automated driving system manages all dynamic driving tasks and, under most circumstances, no human interaction is required.
Veoneer and Zenuity, the joint venture between Veoneer and Volvo Cars, have developed the Zeus board. Veoneer is responsible for hardware and basic software, and Zenuity for the Autonomous Driving feature software development and vehicle integration. Zeus is based on the scalable architecture of NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Xavier and runs the NVIDIA DRIVE OS operating system.
“We developed Zeus to provide safe mobility solutions, and it is an important step towards industrializing autonomous driving in 2021. Working closely with expert partners NVIDIA and Zenuity is key to innovate trusted solutions for future mobility,” says Jan Carlson, Chairman, President and CEO of Veoneer.
The supercomputer is built on the NVIDIA Xavier system-on-a-chip, which is architected for safety by integrating six different processors that accelerate diverse and redundant algorithms, including deep learning artificial intelligence software. The platform provides the computational horsepower to process data from up to 27 sensors.
