Fixstars, which is dedicated to "Speed Up Your Business", and the Toyota Tsusho Group's NEXTY Electronics are working towards creating a society with automated driving.Our Mission
In the automotive electronics market centered on automated driving, software quality is of utmost importance. While the actualization of automated driving is becoming more and more realistic thanks to the development of AI technology, many challenges remain. Fixstars and NEXTY Electronics will accelerate the actualization of an automated driving society by making full use of parallelization, optimization, machine learning and computer vision technology as a part of "Fixstars Autonomous Technologies".
Fixstars Autonomous Technologies is developing comprehensive technologies for actualizing automated driving. From algorithm development to software acceleration, targeting mass-produced vehicles based on software optimization technology that makes maximum use of hardware resources with limited power consumption along with machine learning and image recognition technology.
In order to achieve high-speed software execution while suppressing power consumption, optimization technology is key. It needs to be adapted to the architecture of the hardware and also to utilize parallel programming technology.
Fixstars Autonomous Technologies optimizes the automated driving program so that the best performance on hardware can be obtained, no matter what it is: CPUs/GPUs/SoCs.
In addition to Fixstars' core competence, parallel programming technology, we have technicians familiar with the characteristics of various hardware, so we can deal with software development and performance improvement on new hardware architecture.
Fixstars Autonomous Technologies creates optimal programs for processors with years of optimization know-how. Even in the harsh automotive environment, we are committed to cutting even 1msec of time and to helping contribute to the eventual goal of automated driving.
The term "image recognition algorithm" is used quite frequently, but some hardware is better at it than others. In order to utilize real-time processing in an automotive environment, it is important to develop algorithms which use processing that the target hardware is actually good at. Fixstars Autonomous Technologies is developing algorithms which make full use of the characteristics of different hardware.
Image recognition technology has rapidly evolved with the emergence of deep learning and has become an indispensable technology for realizing automated driving. Fixstars Autonomous Technologies offers algorithms that combine high recognition accuracy with real-time performance by machine learning including deep learning.
We are looking for an automated driving system development engineer at Fixstars. You can work right at the cutting edge of the automated driving field with engineers who love the technology and help realize high speeds for their customers.See job postings (Japanese)
