Challenges in mission critical software for automotive
The challenges in mission critical software for automotive that the industry will have to overcome in the near future are more than known before we can see them on the road, mainly related with safety issues.
Autonomous vehicles need a set of sensors to “see” the surrounded environment (360º) regardless of external conditions (weather, traffic, pedestrians, etc.) and without human interaction. All these sensors generate a huge amount of data (around 25 Gigabytes per hour) and this data has to be processed in milliseconds. On the other hand, autonomous systems will use machine learning to process the data that comes from their sensors and help them make the decisions about their next actions.
Klepsydra solutions overview
Thus, there are two immediate challenges where Klepsydra can help with their products:
1. Klepsydra SDK is able to collect all the data generated by all sensors and processes it more efficiently with zero data loss and with a reduction in power consumption.
2. Klepsydra AI is an inference engine where AI models can be run increasing the throughput and reducing processor power consumption at the same time.
With the combination of these two products, autonomous vehicles will be able to carry out detection and classification of data coming from sensors more efficiently and quicker than a human driver can.
Klepsydra solution for mission critical software for automotive
Klepsydra products have been created based on real-time and deterministic approaches. They are characterised by the following technical features:
