Autonomous driving computing chip provider Black Sesame Technologies has selected Elektrobit‘s AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System Architecture) Classic Platform (CP) for the development of its autonomous driving platform.
Black Sesame Technologies notes it is one of the first domestic autonomous driving chip manufacturing companies in China to utilize AUTOSAR technology. Its A1000 series chip is already able to support AUTOSAR CP, including OS, BSW, RTE, and more basic software. With cutting-edge functionality and performance capabilities, the A1000 series chip will power a generation of autonomous driving vehicles and enable smart cockpit features and functions.
David Zeng, senior VP and CSO of Black Sesame Technologies, said, “At Black Sesame Technologies, we are committed to making intelligence for better living. Currently, we have built a complete customer empowerment system that will enable car factories to safely and quickly produce quality products from chips, algorithms, data, software and tools. Through this cooperation with Elektrobit, we will further expand into the field of autonomous driving while also providing customers with a safer, more economical, and more comprehensive autonomous driving solution.”
Woody Zou, VP and MD of Elektrobit in China, added, “We are very excited to collaborate with Black Sesame Technologies, a Chinese leading autonomous driving chip company. With Elektrobit’s proven AUTOSAR-compliant software and tools that meets ISO 26262 requirements for automotive functional safety, the two companies are creating a ‘one-stop shop’ software and hardware solution. Our combined offering enables car makers and their suppliers to more efficiently and cost-effectively develop next-generation in-vehicle ECU products for safe and highly automated driving.”
