April 6th, 2017 | PolySync : Nervous System of an Automated Driving Vehicle


Join SAE Oregon for an evening with PolySync as a continuation of our evening technical event series (meal included with ticket purchase).

There are numerous discussions currently orbiting the idea of the “brain” of an automated driving vehicle (ADV). Machine learning and the neural networks required to perform decision making in real time are in constant focus. However, little has been discussed about the body and nervous system of the ADV. The mechanisms by which the environmental data in and around the vehicle gets transmitted to the brain and, once speed and trajectory have been decided, how those signals return to the vehicle frame for actuation.
This presentation covers the nature of, and requirements for, a fundamental sensor hardware and vehicle actuation abstraction layer for the next generation of the Software Defined Vehicle. The system requirements and overall cost for an ADV end up making the environmental data one of the most important and safety critical pieces. How that data is shared and made available to a redundant decision-making system are key factors in making this abstraction layer a requirement.”
