Collaborators Accelerate Autonomous Driving With AI

(Xilinx and ZF Friedrichshafen AG)

Xilinx and ZF Friedrichshafen AG have established a strategic collaboration in which Xilinx technology will power ZF's artificial intelligence (AI)-based automotive control unit, called the ZF ProAI, to enable automated driving applications. ZF is using the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platform to handle real-time data aggregation, pre-processing, and distribution, as well as to provide compute acceleration for the AI processing in ZF's new AI-based electronic control unit.

 

ZF selected this adaptable, intelligent platform because it provides the processing power scalability and flexibility essential for the ZF ProAI platform to be customized for each of its customer's unique requirements. "The unique selling proposition of the ZF ProAI is its modular hardware concept and open software architecture. Our aim is to provide the widest possible range of functions in the field of autonomous driving," explained Torsten Gollewski, head of ZF Advanced Engineering and general manager of Zukunft Ventures GmbH. This approach is unique compared to other systems on the market, which use a fixed combination of hardware and software architecture – a solution that can potentially limit functionality and add more cost.
