Zenuity, a company developing software solutions for automotive safety and autonomous driving (AD), has become the first to team up with CERN in the fields of fast machine learning. A fundamental challenge in the development of AD cars is the fast interpretation of the huge quantities of data generated in normal driving conditions. CERN has approached this challenge in the context of physics data acquisition, by using Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) hardware that can execute complex decision-taking algorithms in microseconds. The collaboration between Zenuity and CERN aims to leverage this knowledge using FPGAs for fast machine learning applications that allow AD cars to reach fast decisions and make predictions more quickly.
