A new series of ADAS-enabled products has been announced by ECARX, a global provider of mobility technology, starting with the ECARX Skyland Pro. The solutions line will support drivers as the autonomy of their vehicles increases.
Delivery of the ECARX ADAS platform has already started. Owing to its dual system-on-chip (SoC) architecture, ECARX Skyland Pro delivers exceptional performance and is supported by a sophisticated safety system.
Deploying two Black Sesame Huashan-2 A1000 automotive-grade SoCs to deliver comprehensive computing power of 116 tera operations per second (TOPS) at 8-bit integer (INT8), the high-performance ECARX Skyland Pro enables L2+ advanced driving and parking.
In addition, the ECARX Skyland Pro platform supports industry-leading bird’s-eye view (BEV) perception algorithms and a 5R10V sensor configuration. Through continuous over-the-air updates, ECARX Skyland Pro can enable more scenario-based solutions such as urban navigate-on-autopilot (NoA) capability and home-zone park assist (HPA).
The Skyland Pro’s further ADAS features include: automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane-keeping assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW), blind spot detection (BSD), and electronic stability control (ESC) – all of which have achieved high scores in China-New Car Assessment Program (C-NCAP) preliminary testing under China’s stringent vehicle safety assessment program.
Testing and validation of system functionalities are major considerations in the development of ADAS solutions. To address these concerns, ECARX provides end-to-end testing, and a validation methodology and toolchain, which according to the company enables its partners to significantly shorten the R&D cycle while mitigating risks and ensuring the reliability of ECARX’s ADAS solutions.
The launch of Skyland Pro will be soon followed by the introduction of ECARX Skyland, a single SoC solution that is able to meet a wider range of OEM needs. Tailored for L2+ ADAS scenarios, ECARX Skyland will allow auto makers to seamlessly combine driving and parking functionalities, the tech provider says.
Mass production of ECARX Skyland Pro and the ECARX Antora 1000 Pro computing platforms has begun as ECARX delivers on its commitment to provide a comprehensive suite of automotive intelligence solutions that seamlessly merge outstanding performance with maximum security.
