AMD Powers Aisin Next-Generation Automated Parking Assist System

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) announ짯ced today that the AMD Xilinx Auto짯mo짯ti짯ve (XA) Zynq UltraS짯ca짯le+ MPSoC plat짯form has been sel짯ec짯ted to power the Aisin Auto짯ma짯ted Par짯king-Assist (APA) sys짯tem. The high짯ly adap짯ta짯ble XA Zynq UltraS짯ca짯le+ MPSoC plat짯form enables the next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on Aisin APA sys짯tem to detect pede짯stri짯ans, vehic짯les and free space effi짯ci짯ent짯ly and at extre짯me짯ly low laten짯cy. The Aisin APA sys짯tem will begin ship짯ping in model year 2024.

The XA Zynq UltraS짯ca짯le+ MPSoC plat짯form deploy짯ed in the came짯ras within the Aisin APA sys짯tem com짯bi짯nes a high-per짯for짯mance Arm-based mul짯ti짯co짯re, mul짯tipro짯ces짯sing sys짯tem with ASIC-class pro짯gramma짯ble logic con짯tai짯ning cus짯tom co-pro짯ces짯sors that can be opti짯mi짯zed to meet sys짯tem needs, inclu짯ding a deep lear짯ning pro짯ces짯sor unit for con짯vo짯lu짯tio짯nal neu짯ral net짯work (CNN) pro짯ces짯sing. This enables machi짯ne lear짯ning-based sce짯ne seg짯men짯ta짯ti짯on and object detec짯tion for the Aisin APA sys짯tem. The XA Zynq MPSoC plat짯form deli짯vers maxi짯mum pro짯ces짯sing effi짯ci짯en짯cy and is capa짯ble of off짯loa짯ding cri짯ti짯cal func짯tions, such as gra짯phics and video pipe짯lining, to dedi짯ca짯ted pro짯ces짯sing blocks to enable low-laten짯cy image processing.

The Aisin APA sys짯tem uses four came짯ras and 12 ultra짯so짯nic sen짯sors moun짯ted on the vehic짯le to reco짯gni짯ze the sur짯roun짯ding envi짯ron짯ment and cal짯cu짯la짯te the dri짯ving rou짯te. The sys짯tem then con짯trols the vehic짯le accor짯ding to the cal짯cu짯la짯ted rou짯te to park its짯elf. In addi짯ti짯on, the Aisin APA sys짯tem also auto짯ma짯ti짯cal짯ly per짯forms auto짯ma짯ted emer짯gen짯cy bra짯king in the event of a poten짯ti짯al collision.

Aisin셲 APA sys짯tem lever짯a짯ges com짯plex AI and requi짯res an SoC deli짯ve짯ring high per짯for짯mance and low laten짯cy, which led us to choo짯sing the AMD Xilinx XA Zynq UltraS짯ca짯le+ MPSoC plat짯form, said Mori짯to Oshi짯ta, pre짯si짯dent, Chas짯sis and Vehic짯le Safe짯ty Sys짯tem Com짯pa짯ny, Aisin Cor짯po짯ra짯ti짯on. 쏝asic sur짯round-view sys짯tems redu짯ced some of the chal짯lenges of manu짯al par짯king for con짯su짯mers, whe짯re짯as APA sys짯tems can now signi짯fi짯cant짯ly ease the stress of par짯king in tight spots. We are plea짯sed to start deve짯lo짯p짯ment and bring this solu짯ti짯on to consumers.

As sur짯round-view sys짯tems evol짯ve from basic video stit짯ching and gra짯phic over짯lays that visual짯ly assist dri짯vers, to cars now being able to use AI to park them짯sel짯ves we see a huge oppor짯tu짯ni짯ty to sup짯port the needs of this mar짯ket with our adap짯ta짯ble Zynq plat짯form, said Han짯ne짯ke Kre짯kels, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent, Core Ver짯ti짯cal Mar짯kets, AMD. 쏛isin is lea짯ding the pack with its inno짯va짯ti짯ve approach, desig짯ning this APA sys짯tem with the fle짯xi짯bi짯li짯ty to adapt the spe짯ci짯fi짯ca짯ti짯ons depen짯ding on the spe짯ci짯fic requi짯re짯ments of dif짯fe짯rent auto짯ma짯kers. This is a per짯fect exam짯p짯le of how the adap짯ta짯bi짯li짯ty of the AMD Zynq MPSoC pro짯vi짯des an upgrade path to increased fea짯ture capa짯bi짯li짯ty in future designs.
