A strategic partnership between Infineon Technologies and Austria-based product compliance company Kontrol will see the companies work toward making future mobility solutions safer and legally compliant.
At present, there is an extensive amount of standards and requirements that AV companies must meet to ensure legal compliance. These create significant challenges when it comes to finding safe and cost-effective approaches for autonomous driving licensing in public transportation.
Kontrol responsible for translating and digitizing complicated legal regulations and relevant road traffic standards and regulations into machine-readable language. Kontrol’s proprietary KoPilot technology confirms whether an integrated driver assistance function is working in accordance with the law.
Through the use of Infineon’s AURIX microcontroller range, the companies can provide necessary regulatory updates for their customers whenever required – ensuring a high level of road safety while adhering to up-to-date standards. Jointly, both Kontrol and Infineon can integrate the digital driver’s license for AVs into intelligent driver assistance systems.
“The software technology from our ecosystem partner Kontrol implemented on the dependable AURIX microcontroller architecture is a step forward to enhance the trust in autonomous driving technology by a deterministic, algorithm-based solution which is able to offer legal based, regulatory boundary conditions for vehicles on the road,” said Lars Wemme, vice president ADAS, chassis & EE-architecture, Infineon.
“We are very pleased to have a strong partner at our side who trusts in our technology and believes in the future of autonomous driving,” added Andreas Lauringer, CEO and co-founder, Kontrol. “With Infineon as the world’s leading expert in automotive semiconductors, together we can make tomorrow’s mobility safer.”
