NXP Semiconductors has unveiled its Automated Drive Kit, a software-enabled platform for the development and testing of automated vehicle applications.
The kit enables carmakers and suppliers to develop, test and deploy autonomous algorithms and applications quickly on an open and flexible platform.
The NXP Automated Drive Kit provides a baseline for level 3 development and will expand to additional autonomy levels.
The first release of the Automated Drive Kit will include a front vision system based on NXP’s S32V234 processor, allowing customers to deploy their algorithms of choice.
The Kit also includes front camera application software APIs and object detection algorithms provided by Neusoft; an IT solutions and services provider in China and an advanced driver assistance system and AD partner to NXP.
Additionally, the Kit includes radar options and GPS positioning technology. Customers choose from various Lidar options and can add Lidar Object Processing (LOP) modular software from AutonomouStuff, which provides ground segmentation and object tracking.
