According to RTI’s belief, the amount of technological innovation required to develop highly-autonomous vehicles demands collaboration across brands at an industry level. This requires the availability of a common architecture that these systems can be based on, regardless of the manufacturer, hardware or software selected. In mid 2019, autonomous driving stakeolders such as arm, Bosch, Continental, GM, NXP, Renesas and Toyota, united to form the AVCC to help solve the challenge of deploying safe self-driving vehicles. AVCC regards it as its primary purpose is to develop a computing platform designed specifically to move today’s prototype systems to deployment at scale. The group will also develop the requirements for software connectivity interfaces for each building block in an autonomous vehicle. RTI announced that its automotive experts will work with AVCC members on interface standards, real-time communication and next generation system architecture to advance the state-of-the-art in vehicle design.
