With the rise of advanced technology, the appearances of cutting-edge vehicles have been sprung up recently. Out of all the burgeoning vehicles, driverless vehicles have gone viral the most. Autonomous Vehicles (AV) could contribute to making future mobility more efficient, safer and cleaner. However, the road to the success is not always effortless for driverless vehicles; it requires the support of lots of technologies. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) is the backbone of the success of driverless vehicles, also with sensors and the computing unit that handles the main control for the self-driving vehicles, such as converting throttle input to torque requests, safety system monitoring, control loops, and power limiting. To satisfy the rapid increase in the operation speed of the sensors and the accumulated data, powerful GPGPU brings high speed, low latency, and more complex performance. Plus, while driving on uneven terrain, the system must be anti-vibration to protect the machine from damage. 7Starlake uses MXM mezzanine type structure to enhance the strength of ruggedness. Moreover, IV320CH-TX also equips 10GbE Uplink network which is wide bandwidth and can support for high-resolution video processing, to deliver low latency transmission.
To realize Edge AI technology, IV320CH-TX is driven by Intel® 9th Coffee Lake Processors, which features 6 cores, max frequency up to 4.4 GHz, providing high-speed data processing to support a large amount of computation. It is integrated Intel® UHD Graphics. Coffee Lake processor is built on 14nm Technology. It is high computing performance and flexibility for heavier IoT workloads.
