Computer Vision HW Acceleration for Driver Assistance

Tuesday, May 22, 11:20 AM - 11:50 AM
Summit Track: 
Technical Insights II
Room 203/204

With highly automated and fully automated driver assistance system just around the corner, next generation ADAS sensors and central ECUs will have much higher safety and functional requirements to cope with. This directly translates into a huge uptake of the required calculation performance and hence into much higher power consumption and into system cost. Due to the increased amount and complexity of visual sensors around the car, the embedded computer vision subsystem carries a major stake of this increase. To realize efficient, safe and affordable L3 and higher ADAS solutions it is important to use the best possible compromise of HW acceleration between fixed logic and specialized processing architectures. This presentation will give an overview of the different CV methods in a next generation ADAS system and look at the trade-offs between fixed logic and programmable processing units with an eye on the latest developments in Deep Learning.
