Vision MPU enables autonomous cars

A vision MPU, claimed to be the first automotive vision SoC with the requisite reliability, safety and security measures to automate and ‘co-pilot’ a self-aware car, has been introduced by Freescale Semiconductor. Leveraging a host of automotive-grade technologies, the S32V takes the industry beyond the current, convenience-centric ‘assist’ paradigm and toward an era where cars can capture data, process it and actually share control with drivers in critical situations. This capability establishes the essential bridge from the current ‘assist’ era toward the fully autonomous vehicles of tomorrow.
