Hardware for Artificial Intelligence

In the Spotlight

Automated driving systems at or above level 3 depend on applications developed in the area of artificial intelligence. The sustainable, real-world use of such applications depends, in turn, on exceptionally fast and energy-efficient computing platforms that include novel hardware solutions. Various enterprises are currently vying to develop chips capable of unprecedented processing speeds. So far, the so-called tensor processing units seem to hold the most promise.

Semiconductors for Driverless Vehicles

The current benchmark is 19 kDMIPS. Performance values short of this benchmark are insufficient for automated driving at or above level 2 premium (or L2+). An MIPS value indicates how many millions of instructions per second a computing system is capable of processing. A DMIPS is an MIPS value ascertained using the Dhrystone benchmark. However, the 19 kDMIPS benchmark is only the beginning, and car manufacturers will soon need computing systems capable of more than 270 kDMIPS for...
