Subaru selects Xilinx to power new-generation Eyesight ADAS
22 August 2020
Xilinx, Inc. announced that its technology is powering the new version of Subaru’s vision-based advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS), EyeSight. Integrated into the all-new Subaru Levorg for the Japanese market, the new EyeSight system will provide advanced features including adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and pre-collision braking.
Stereo cameras are at the heart of Subaru’s ADAS applications. Unlike common approaches, the image processing technology adopted in our new generation system scans everything captured by stereo cameras and creates high-precision 3D point clouds, enabling us to offer advanced features such as pre-collision braking at an intersection and assisting with hands-off driving in traffic congestion on a highway.
Xilinx technology plays an important role in this. Because Xilinx automotive devices contain built-in capabilities that allow us to meet strict ASIL requirements, they are unquestionably the best technology to implement Subaru’s new ADAS vision system.—Tetsuo Fujinuki, chief technology officer, Subaru Corporation
The Xilinx Automotive-qualified (XA) Zynq UltraScale+ multi-processor system-on-a-chip (MPSoC) 16 nanometer technology provides the high-performance, ultra-low latency, and functional safety (ASIL) capabilities that EyeSight requires to accurately depict and react to dynamic driving scenarios.
The product integrates a 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 based processing system (PS) and Xilinx programmable logic (PL) UltraScale architecture in a single device.
