Veoneer says it is one of the founding partners in AI Innovation of Sweden, a new Swedish national centre for accelerating research and innovation within Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI Innovation of Sweden is described as a national and neutral initiative which is intended to function as an 'engine in the Swedish AI ecosystem'. The focus is on accelerating implementation of AI by means of sharing knowledge and data, co-location and collaboration projects, all with a strong focus on ethics, transparency and security, Veoneer says.

AI and Deep Learning technologies will be used more and more when developing more advanced and reliable ADAS and automated driving solutions, such as the forward-looking cameras used in the next generation highway pilot assist. Veoneer sys it is a pioneer in this deep learning vision with the first customer deliveries in 2019. 

AI is also important for the next phase of mobility, referred to as 'Collaborative Driving', when the car is handling parts of the driving, with the driver still engaged. Here, AI is an important ingredient for creating mutual trust between the driver and the car, Veoneer says. 

"Working together in ecosystems is important to accelerate speed in innovation and creating robust and reliable AI tools. We are proud to be one of the founding partners in this Swedish initiative," says Ola Boström, VP Research at Veoneer.

AI Innovation of Sweden is funded by Vinnova, Region Västra Götaland, the private sector, the public sector, research institutes, and academia.
