── AMD Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC automotive platform with deep learning processor advances low-latency AI-based image processing for automated parking system ──
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced that the AMD Xilinx Automotive (XA) Zynq® UltraScale+™ The MPSoC platform was selected to power the Aisin Automated Parking-Assist (APA) system. The highly adaptable MPSoC XA Zynq UltraScale+ platform enables the next-generation Aisin APA system to efficiently detect pedestrians, vehicles, and open space with extremely low latency. The Aisin APA system will start shipping from model year 2024.
The XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platform — deployed in Aisin APA system cameras — combines a high-performance arm®multi-core, multiprocessing ASIC-based system with ASIC-class programmable logic containing custom coprocessors that can be optimized to meet system needs, including a deep learning processor unit for convolutional neural network (CNN) processing . This enables scene segmentation based on machine learning and object detection for the Aisin APA system. The XA Zynq MPSoC platform delivers maximum processing efficiency and is capable of offloading critical functions, such as graphics and video pipelining, to dedicated processing blocks to enable low-latency image processing.
The Aisin APA system uses four cameras and 12 vehicle-mounted ultrasonic sensors to recognize the environment and calculate the driving route. The system then steers the vehicle according to the calculated route to park. Additionally, the Aisin APA system also automatically performs automated emergency braking in the event of a potential collision.
“Aisin’s APA system leverages complex AI and requires a SoC with high performance and low latency, which led us to choose the AMD Xilinx XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platform,” said Morito Oshita, President, Chassis and Vehicle Safety System Company, Aisin Corporation. “Basic surround-view systems have reduced some of the challenges of manual parking for consumers, while APA systems can now significantly reduce the stress of parking in tight spaces. We are excited to begin development and bring this solution to consumers.
“As surround-view systems evolve from basic video stitching and graphic overlays that visually assist drivers, to cars that can now use AI to park – we see a huge opportunity to meet the needs of this market. with our adaptable Zynq platform,” said Hanneke Krekels, Corporate Vice President, Core Vertical Markets, AMD. “Aisin is leading the pack with its innovative approach, designing this APA system with the flexibility to tailor specifications based on the specific requirements of different automakers. It’s a perfect example of how the adaptability of the AMD MPSoC Zynq provides an upgrade path to increased feature capability in future designs.
