ADVERTORIAL TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION aiDrive2 Introduces a Modular Approach to Automated Driving

powered self-driving full-stack software, aiDrive™ 2. Through a highly modular design, aiDrive2 will serve as a platform for deeper collaboration in an industry dominated by proprietary ‘walled garden’ approaches. aiDrive2’s modular design will open the door to a wide


range of implementations reducing the time to market of automated driving solutions. Automotive OEMs, Tier1s and Robotaxi companies will have the ability to integrate only selected modules into a best-in-class solution or rely on aiDrive2 to deploy full automated driving solutions. Compatible with a wide range of different sensor types and hardware platforms, aiDrive2’s flexibility allows for a wide range of possible collaborations. The software stack offers a platform for both ADAS functionalities and L4 autonomy in an autonomous driving industry racing to reduce the time to market of automated driving solutions available to the public.

Imotive, the autonomous technology service provider, today announced the next generation of its AI-

“AImotive has always supported industry collaboration

and standardization. These will be vital in securing consumer trust in autonomous driving technologies,” said Laszlo Kishonti, AImotive CEO. “By creating aiDrive2 AImotive hopes to provide an easily accessible platform to support our partners in achieving their autonomous goals.” The aiDrive software stack handles all tasks associated

with self-driving from perception to control. The solution relies on advanced artificial intelligence in perception and motion planning to ensure a higher degree of safety in operation. To ensure safety AI is augmented with classical, verifiable planning algorithms. aiDrive is compatible with a wide range of sensor types to ensure redundancy and a deeper understanding of the vehicle’s environment. Building on these various input types aiDrive2 also utilizes high- and low-level sensor fusion for robust model space creation. aiDrive2 offers the complete functionality of the

previous generation of aiDrive but has been highly optimized for embedded automotive hardware platforms.

These optimizations allow for the deployment of aiDrive- based self-driving systems in production vehicles, without compromising on the safety of the system. AImotive is currently working on the advancement of

autonomous vehicle technologies with partners such as Groupe PSA, Samsung and SAIC. aiDrive2 will be available for licensing from Q1 2019. Interested parties can see the system in action in AImotive’s booth at CES 2019: Tech East North Hall, #7538.

WS2 Stops galling of SS and Titanium

Stainless Steels and Titanium are both prone to galling and seizing. WS2 is a very low friction dry lubricant surface treatment, developed by NASA for use in deep space. It has been shown to provide a very cost effective solution, preventing both problems on threads and other sliding surfaces. WS2 works well from -273° to 450° C and down to 10-14 Torr. WS2 has been applied to bearings and gears to extend life. Design Out maintenance problems with WS2!
