Xilinx Powers Baidu's Production-Ready ACU-Advanced Platform for Automated Valet Parking
CHANGSHA, China, Dec. 19, 2019 - (Baidu 2019 Apollo Ecosystem Event) - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the leader in adaptive and intelligent computing, today announced that the Xilinx® Automotive (XA) Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC (XAZU5EV) is powering Baidu's production-ready Apollo Computing Unit (ACU)-Advanced platform for Automated Valet Parking (AVP), the industry's first dedicated computing solution for AVP. The ACU is Baidu's advanced in-vehicle computing platform for autonomous driving. ACU-Advanced is the first production-ready AVP controller enabled by an XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC.
Designed for the specific scenarios and functions of valet parking, which require sophisticated and powerful deep learning inference to handle the complex driving environment, the production-ready ACU-Advanced for AVP features the XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC for sensor fusion and AI processing, replacing the GPU used in proof-of-concept. In addition, the platform is fully compatible with the Baidu PaddlePaddle framework, and includes five cameras, 12 ultrasonic radars and a -40 ~ 85℃ working temperature range, which meets vehicle–level production requirements.
"Through our close collaboration with Xilinx, we are providing automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers with an adaptable computing platform," said Wang Yunpeng, senior director of Baidu's Automatic Driving Technology Department. "The Xilinx technology is at the heart of our ACU- Advanced platform for AVP as no other solution could provide us with the performance required for mass production."
Xilinx is a leading automotive solution provider with over 13 years of auto industry experience. The company's automotive solutions offer the ultimate in hardware and software partitioning flexibility combined with a variety of networking connectivity options, unique functional safety architecture configurations and security features for current and future autonomous drive modules.
