Subaru has opted to use Xilinx’s multi-processor technology in EyeSight, the next generation of its vision-based advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS). The EyeSight system will be integrated into the all-new Subaru Levorg model, providing advanced features including adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and pre-collision braking.
Subaru will be implementing Xilinx’s automotive-qualified (XA) Zynq UltraScale+ multi-processor system-on-a-chip (MPSoC), a 16-nanometer technology that provides the ultra-low latency and functional safety capabilities that the EyeSight system requires to accurately depict and react to dynamic driving scenarios.
Tetsuo Fujinuki, chief technology officer at Subaru Corporation stated, “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.”
