Continental and Ambarella have intensified their relationship by forming a strategic partnership which will jointly develop scalable full-stack systems for Level 2+ up to highly automated vehicles, alongside camera-based perception solutions for ADAS. The full-stack system solutions will take a multi-sensor approach with Continental’s high-resolution cameras, radars, lidars, the associated control units and the required software.
To serve the growing market for assisted and automated driving functionalities in the best possible way and thus pave the way towards autonomous mobility, the partners Continental and Ambarella aim to have these joint solutions ready for global series production in 2026.
Faster and More Precise Processing of Collected Data
Continental's driver assistance systems enhanced with Ambarella's SoCs can process more collected data faster, enabling a larger and more precise range of functions.
The more sensors are installed in a vehicle, the greater the amount of data collected to detect the environment. Through the joint solution with a centralized, single-chip processing based on 5 nanometer technology, the next generation of vehicles will be able to utilize an increasing performance level to process multi-sensor perception even quicker.
Sensor solutions include high-resolution camera, radar, lidar as well as ultrasonic. The integrated SoC enables early data fusion, in which the information from different sensors is superimposed simultaneously, for various modalities.
Significant Impact for industry and degree of vehicle automation
The high scalability of the system-on-chip family allows vehicle manufacturers to choose the necessary performance level for their system requirements on the same vehicle architecture.
Despite the higher performance and accuracy, the solution consumes less power. This leads also to fewer cooling efforts, making sustainable energy savings possible, while also reducing system costs. An added value to vehicle manufacturers to reduce their engineering efforts across all vehicle types.
Unique system-on-chip performance with low power consumption
Ambarella’s fully scalable, power efficient family of system-on-chips provides significant AI performance per watt for neural network computation, with a performance increase of over 40 times compared to the former semiconductor chip family.
Additionally, Ambarella integrates its image signal processor technology into all SoCs. This results in robust ADAS systems with higher levels of environmental perception in challenging lighting, weather and driving conditions for both machine perception and human vision.
