Transformable ADAS/AD hardware platform dynamically changes during a drive
ADAS/AD platforms with fixed features may lack the flexibility needed in industrial vehicles due to different shapes, sensor setups and operation modes. We will demonstrate how Xylon uses programmable SoC chips in transformable hardware that enables flexible interconnections and sensor fusion from diverse setups, customized hardware accelerators for various tasks, and sensor function overloading, e.g. video cameras for 3D surround view become a stereo camera pair for monitoring the swinging excavator arm. Exchange of chip parts without a system reboot enables a failsafe and dynamic adaptation of full-perception controls, computer vision and AI hardware setups to the current machine’s operation mode.
