Daimler, Xilinx to develop automotive AI system
Leading US semiconductor company Xilinx and Stuttgart-based multinational automotive manufacturing firm Daimler AG have signed a new partnership to develop an in-car AI system.
Powered by Xilinx’s Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform, the smart system will be designed to process and deliver advanced AI-powered automotive applications with high performance and low latency.
“Through this strategic collaboration, Xilinx is providing technology that will enable us to deliver very low latency and power-efficient solutions for vehicle systems which must operate in thermally constrained environments,” said Georges Massing, Director of User Interaction & Software, Daimler AG.
Xilinx was selected by Daimler due to the firm’s proven track record within the market, having shipped more than 40mn automotive units to manufacturers and suppliers to date.
Further, as part of the collaboration, AI experts from the Mercedes-Benz Research and Development Centers in Germany and India will look to implement their own AI algorithms on Xilinx’s platform.
“We are proud to announce this collaboration with Daimler on advanced AI applications," said Willard Tu, senior director, Automotive, Xilinx.
“Our adaptable acceleration platform for automotive offers industry leaders like Daimler a high level of flexibility for innovation in deploying neural networks for intelligent vehicle systems.”
Searching for the Top 100 Leaders in Technology
The search is on for the Top 100 Leaders in Technology 2021 – nominated by readers of Technology magazine and open to all.
The initiative has been launched and nominations are now open, with the final, prestigious Top 100 due to be announced during Technology and AI LIVE running 14-16 September, beamed from London to the world.
This latest, definitive list of the leading executives and influencers in the industry will be announced at the event and shared across social media channels, this website, and presented in a special supplement that honours all of those named in our annual list.
The Top 100 Leaders follows on from the well-received Top 100 Women in Technology that BizClik Media Group (BMG) – publishers of Technology magazine, AI magazine and a growing portfolio of industry-leading titles – produced in March this year to coincide with International Women’s Day.
“The Top 100 Women recognised the incredible and influential women driving our industry,” says Scott Birch, editorial director, BMG. “The success of that initiative encouraged us to recognise the Top 100 Leaders – individuals championing everything that we love about technology and embracing best practice that’s good for business.”
