Israel-based IonTerra, which has developed rtCVI, an intelligent cognition software platform based on proprietary technology, is introducing a new approach for getting past current limitations of computing power, time to market and reliability of ADAS and Autonomous Vehicle systems.
Using the company’s patent pending technology, IonTerra creates a breakthrough in the ability to run advanced ADAS applications on lightweight ECUs, the company says. The company’s software platform has already been integrated with several low power boards, such as ARM A53 Core Raspberry Pi 3 & A72 Core Rock 960, for multiple object detection use cases running concurrently, and will be showcasing its technology running on the different boards at the upcoming MWC convention at Barcelona.
IonTerra’s platform meets the growing demand for ADAS functionality in new vehicles but also in vehicles that are already on the road. This is due to the fact that the platform doesn’t require dedicated hardware and can run on small lightweight ECUs, that are already available in existing vehicle architectures.
IonTerra’s target is to get past current ADAS and autonomous vehicle drawbacks, and introduce safer and more reliable driving. The company’s rtCVI platform is able to get past current sensor fusion techniques’ limitations, and take full advantage of the existing sensors’ capabilities, the company says. It is also able to get past deep learning limitations, such as the need to drive millions of miles and some of the deep learning hacking vulnerabilities, and it provides a holistic approach for meeting safety standards and regulations for autonomous vehicles.
The company is in advanced testing phases with leading worldwide Automotive OEMs. It has successfully completed round A fundraising, accruing investments from leading investors in the Israeli vehicle market, and is now starting round B. The company, whose development center is located in Ofer Park, Petah Tikva, Israel, has recently opened an office in Germany.
IonTerra will be showcasing its technology at MWC in Barcelona between Feb 25-28, at the Israel Pavilion, Hall 5, Stand E71, Booth 31.
