Autonomous vehicle startup to debut new technology that will improve efficiency and advance self-driving solutions
DeepRoute.ai, a global level 4 self-driving solution provider, today announced it will be showcasing innovative technologies at the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including an inference engine, DeepRoute-Engine, its second-generation all-in-one sensing solution, and human-like planning.
“DeepRoute has made exciting progress over the past year, and we look forward to presenting our latest solutions to a world-class audience at CES,” said Nianqiu Liu, Vice President of DeepRoute.ai. “We’ve perfected our level 4 self-driving technology both in software and hardware, and have strengthened our partnerships with OEMs and ride-hailing companies, to continually build the future of smart mobility.”
At CES, the company is debuting DeepRoute-Engine, an inference engine that speeds up the neural network computation, allowing algorithms to run on an energy-efficient computing platform. This results in a 6x faster inference process than that of widely used open source deep learning frameworks (e.g. TensorFlow, PyTorch, Caffe) and is compatible with GPU of various brands, including NVIDIA, Intel, and AMD, to greatly minimize the computation needed for level 4 self-driving technology. Because of this powerful inference engine, DeepRoute’s level 4 self-driving technology can run on its 45-watt computing platform, DeepRoute-Tite, which is extremely power-efficient, consuming only 1/9 of the power, compared with traditional level 4 self-driving solutions.
Along with the debut of the inference engine, DeepRoute will also showcase its second-generation all-in-one sensing solution, DeepRoute-Sense II. It houses three LiDAR sensors, seven HDR cameras (DeepRoute-Vision), Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), inertial measurement unit (IMU), and a synchronization controller (DeepRoute-Syntric). This powerful combination leads to an accurate object detection range of 140m (153 yards). Notably, the compact roof-box design minimizes the additional drag to only 7%, a huge decrease from the 20% on traditional sensing solutions, allowing for low energy consumption.
