Ambarella, HELLA Aglaia to enable advanced AI features in front ADAS cameras

Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA), a developer of high-resolution video processing and computer vision semiconductors, and HELLA Aglaia, one of the global developers of intelligent visual perception software, have announced that they are partnering to deliver a platform for the next generation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), the company said.

The platform is based on Ambarella´s CV22AQ CVflow computer vision processor, which offers a powerful Image Signal Processor (ISP) and massive Artificial Intelligence (AI) computing performance with extremely low power consumption, typically below 2.5 watts. Combined with HELLA Aglaia´s production-proven software, the platform enables forward-facing, single-box ADAS cameras with advanced AI features and highly accurate image content recognition, requirements for safety-critical applications.

The CV22AQ´s CVflow architecture provides computer vision processing at full 4K or 8-Megapixel resolution at 30 frames per second (fps), to enable image recognition over long distances and with high accuracy. Its ISP provides outstanding imaging in low light conditions while High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing extracts maximum image detail in high-contrast scenes, further enhancing the computer vision capabilities of the chip. CV22AQ includes a suite of advanced security features to protect against hacking, including secure boot, TrustZoneâ„¢, and I/O virtualization.

HELLA Aglaia Mobile Vision GmbH is a full subsidiary of HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA and is one of the global developers of intelligent visual sensor systems. The result of many years of experience, our expertise in mono- and stereo-camera systems, image processing and software programming makes possible the development of innovative industrial solutions and highly effective products for driver-assistance systems, electromobility and people counting. Many of our products set international standards and open completely new application possibilities and future opportunities. For more information visit, www.aglaia-gmbh.de.
