UNTETHER AI TO COLLABORATE WITH SEMICONDUCTOR GIANT ARM ON SMART VEHICLE SOLUTIONS

Toronto-based artificial intelligence (AI) semiconductor startup Untether AI has announced a partnership with Arm that will see the two implement their semiconductor technology into software-defined vehicle (SDV) solutions.

The partnership will see Untether’s inference acceleration technology, which helps AI chips run more efficiently, implemented alongside Arm’s own vehicle-focused technology for SDVs.

An SDV is a vehicle that uses software to manage its operations and add specific functionalities and features, according to BlackBerry. Untether said the aim of the collaboration is to address performance, power, safety, and security requirements in autonomous vehicles (AV) and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). ADAS entails vehicle features such as lane centring, perimeter sensors, and parking assistance, among others.

Arm’s vice president of automotive products and solutions, Suraj Gajendra, said in a statement that the increase in ADAS, AV, and advanced user experiences requires diverse levels of compute in vehicles.
