Dell Technologies has announced a partnership with leading Japanese car manufacturer Subaru Corporation to help improve driver safety through the powerful combination of AI and high-performance storage.

As part of the partnership, Dell storage systems are helping Subaru store and manage approximately 1,000 times more files than before to power next-generation AI solution development. The collaboration is also helping SUBARU Lab, the company’s the AI development base, reduce storage costs while scaling performance through Dell PowerScale storage tiering capabilities.

Subaru Corporation is a leading manufacturer in Japan, with automotive and aerospace businesses as the pillars of its operations. The company is teaming with Dell Technologies to help improve driver safety through the powerful combination of AI and high-performance storage. The collaboration is indicative of AI’s profound impact on transforming one of the most common means of transportation, aiming to help make it safer for drivers, passengers and pedestrians.

“Subaru is driving massive innovation through data to give motorists an extra set of eyes and an extra foot on the brake while entrusting Dell Technologies to enable this journey as its AI development infrastructure,” said Arthur Lewis, President of Dell Technologies’ Infrastructure Solutions Group. “As an AI-ready data platform, Dell PowerScale storage allows companies like Subaru to integrate, analyse and use data to deliver impactful insights that advance human progress and transform industries.”

Thanks to Dell, Subaru will be able to advance the development of its next-generation EyeSight Driver Assist Technology which monitors traffic movement, optimises cruise control and warns drivers if they sway outside their lane.

Subaru can store, manage and use a vast amount of data to advance the development of its next-generation EyeSight Driver Assist Technology with the selection of Dell PowerScale network attached storage systems. PowerScale meets Subaru’s increased IT demand for AI modelling and validation while helping customers easily scale capacity and performance wherever their data resides.

SUBARU Lab, established in 2020, can store approximately 1,000 times more files on Dell PowerScale systems than with previous platforms. Subaru now can improve AI image analysis by easily accessing stored files on PowerScale systems deployed in data centres across the SUBARU Lab and Tokyo offices, which wasn’t previously possible. The ability to scale and use data flexibly across locations has expanded the possibilities for business expansion.

“As a brand that has built its reputation on trust, we are constantly expanding AI development to increase the reliability in our vehicles while contributing to the greater good,” said Takashi Kanai, deputy chief of SUBARU Lab and manager of ADAS Development Department, PGM (Advanced Integrated System), Engineering Division. “While requirements for systems and storage are ever changing, we are confident that Dell PowerScale is up to the task as the underlying infrastructure for EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, allowing us to continue advancing our AI initiatives to improve driver safety.”
