NXP Semiconductors recently announced their new technology - NXP Automated drive kit, which allows the car manufacturing company to develop, test and utilize autonomous algorithms and application fastly on an open and flexible platform.
The kit enables easy access to multiple hardware and software options, which is helpful to the developers. The first kit will release with the front vision system based on NXP’s S32V234 processor, it also includes front camera application software APIs and object detection algorithms provided by Neusoft. The Kit includes sophisticated radar options and GPS positioning technology. The user can use various LiDAR options and able to add more LiDAR Object Processing (LOP) modular software from AutonomouStuff, which helps in ground segmentation and object tracking.
NXP is going to demonstrate “the Automated Drive Kit” in CES 2018 going to held on 9 January in Las Vegas.
“The next wave of mobility requires an automated application development platform that’s quick to implement, open and flexible,” said Kamal Khouri, general manager, and vice president of ADAS, NXP Semiconductors. “By partnering with AutonomouStuff, we are making the NXP Automated Drive Kit available to a broad and growing ecosystem that will enable a rapid development of the future of autonomy.”
“Our partnership with NXP will make major strides in shaping the future of the transportation industry,” said AutonomouStuff CEO, Bobby Hambrick. “Our integrated hardware-software solution, combined with a global deployment infrastructure, provides an easy and highly cost-effective way for the mobility industry to build complex automated driving features.”
The NXP started selling the Automated Drive Kit, you can order it from AutonomouStuff as a standalone package that can be taken by the customer in their own vehicle or by AutonomouStuff Automated Research Development Vehicle as an integrated package.
