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".
Utilizing parallelization and optimization technology cultivated over many years at Fixstars, we are able to achieve maximum performance even in hardware environments with small size, low latency, low power consumption and restrictions.
We utilize machine learning, such as deep learning and computer vision technology, to provide algorithms that combine high recognition accuracy and real time performance.
Taking advantage of the Toyota Tsusho group's extensive career in the network and automotive field, we will arrange an optimal team structure for customer's problem solutions.
In order to improve the systems involved with automated driving, we must first improve the computational abilities of the software, improve accuracy reading the large amount of data being used, and improve immediate responses to real-time stimuli.
In order to achieve these goals, we have to consider adding new hardware and software to the in-vehicle system, strengthening the communication environment between the vehicle and the outside equipment.
However, by strengthening these components, the amount of computation and data processing on the system will increase, leading to an increase power consumption.
Power consumption is alleviated to some extent by virtue of hardware evolution and software algorithm improvements, but it is very difficult apply these improvements to the harsh vehicle environment.
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.
