AI-based camera perception technology specialists StradVision has announced it will utilize the QNX Software Development Platform, from BlackBerry, within a number of its next-generation advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AV) to be supplied to South Korean auto makers.
BlackBerry will license its BlackBerry QNX technology to StradVision, including its QNX Software Development Platform (SDP) 7.0, for use in the company’s SVNet, an AI-based camera perception software tool that is expected to be adopted by a South Korean automotive supplier and a leading OEM.
Blackberry notes that its QNX suite is a highly secure, high-performance and reliable OS platform, which includes the QNX Neutrino RTOS, QNX Momentics Tool Suite and QNX Software Center to provide a full-featured, real-time operating system and development tools for embedded developers.
“The competitiveness of SVNet lies in its flexibility with its broad hardware support and deep learning software for the advancement of safer driving,” said Junhwan Kim, CEO, StradVision. “Leveraging BlackBerry technology will reinforce SVNet as one of the most reliable, safe and robust camera perception solutions for ADAS and autonomous Vehicles, enabling us to bring more innovation and convenience to customers.”
The company states that by using its Deep Neural Network, SVNet saves power and is compatible with target hardware systems, allowing vehicles to detect objects, including other cars on the road, traffic lanes, pedestrians, animals, signs and traffic lights.
Additionally, it says the system remains fully operational even in harsh climates and constantly improves its performance by analyzing collected data with speed and accuracy.
