Autonomous driving IP core will be demoed at CES 2019
At CES 2019 in Las Vegas (8 to 11 January 2019), AImotive will showcase its automated driving technology. It will display aiDrive2, aiSim2, and the silicon-proven aiWare hardware IP core.
The modular self-driving software stack aiDrive will be demoed alongside aiSim2, the autonomous technology simulator running on AImotive’s purpose-built simulation engine.
Demonstrating its highway autopilot capabilities, the aiDrive2 will run on Nvidia’s Drive PX2 embedded platform. The Budapest-based AImotive aims to encourage wider collaboration in the autonomous industry by providing a modular and customisable platform for the development of automated driving systems.
The aiSim2 simulator will also be on display. The engine has proprietary hardware and the simulator runs on a single GPU and a multi-GPU set-up side by side. The ability to ensure deterministic physically-based rendering on any hardware set-up, enables aiSim2 to drastically accelerate the development of autonomous technologies while overcoming the limitations of game engine-based simulators, explains AImotive.
The aiWare test chip will be on display in Las Vegas, running AImotive’s own algorithms to prove the capabilities of the hardware IP core when implemented on silicon. Created through a partnership between AImotive, VeriSilicon and Global Foundries, the chip runs aiWare1. AImotive is currently offering the scalable aiWare2 and aiWare3 architectures to customers looking to create smart sensors or centralised AI acceleration clusters for automotive use.

AImotive is one of the largest independent teams in the world working towards fully self-driving car technology. It addresses challenges of autonomous mobility, powered by AI, simulation technology, and supporting hardware architectures.
It has partnered with the Khronos Group to develop the Neural Network Exchange Format (NNEF), the first neural network data exchange standard to make communication easier and more reliable between AI toolsets and inference engines.
The company was granted licenses to test their self-driving vehicle fleet in Hungary, Finland and the states of California and Nevada.
