Combining multiple CPUs on one logic board and provide artificial intelligence processing, the AI chip firm develops a new category of semiconductors called system on a chip, or SoC

Germany’s Continental and Ambarella, a California-based (artificial intelligence) AI chip firm have partnered on Thursday to make software and hardware systems for autonomous driving.

The two companies will focus on so-called Level 2 plus autonomous driving, which briefly allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel through features like assisted cruise control and lane centering.

Combining multiple CPUs on one logic board and provide artificial intelligence processing, the AI chip firm develops a new category of semiconductors called system on a chip, or SoC.

The two firms jointly develop the technology, which will comprise of high-resolution cameras and radar and lidar senses with the necessary software from Continental, the statement said.

The German auto supplier also holds a minority stake in another California-based firm, lidar startup AEye, and has integrated a long-range lidar sensor based on AEye’s patents to complement the auto supplier’s existing short-range lidar technology.
