  • CEVA Webinar: Vision Based Autonomous Driving

    CEVA Webinar “Challenges of Vision Based Autonomous Driving & Facilitation of An Embedded Neural Network Platform” will be held on November 16th and will address one of the hottest topics today in our industry, probably the hottest in the automotive industry as all the players are working hard on autonomous vehicles.

    The automotive market is seeing accelerated growth and rapid adoption of vision applications that will lead the way to autonomous vehicles. The solutions based on artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms to identify objects were limited to research labs just a couple of years ago.

    Why does deep learning and convolutional neural network (CNN) have exit the labs and be adopted by the automotive industry, Tier-1 suppliers and OEM? Deep learning is requiring a great amount of high performance processing and the new technologies like 16 nm (or below, 10 or 7 nm) allow targeting one chip solution; that’s the first reason. But the second reason and probably the most crucial is linked with deep learning performance improvements: it’s only since 2015 that the imageNet error rate is better than human performance, see below.
