TIER IV, the leading open-source autonomous driving (AD) technology provider, recently announced the launch of A.D.E.E.A, a comprehensive solution designed to support the design and development of E/E (Electric/Electronic) architecture for software-defined vehicles (SDVs).
A.D.E.E.A provides a reference design for E/E architecture, a crucial component for SDVs, allowing for customization based on specific partner requirements. This streamlines the process of developing autonomous vehicles, enabling faster time to market.
E/E architecture forms the backbone of SDVs, acting as the communication network that integrates various AD components. TIER IV, in addition to developing A.D.E.E.A, contributes to the design and development of several key AD vehicle components:
- ADS (Autonomous Driving System): The core software responsible for perception, planning, and control of the autonomous vehicle.
- VCU (Vehicle Control Unit): Communicates with and controls various vehicle functions, including steering, braking, and acceleration.
- Drive-By-Wire: Enables electronic control of essential vehicle functions, replacing traditional mechanical systems.
- IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment): Provides drivers and passengers with information and entertainment systems.
TIER IV, alongside its partners, is dedicated to continuously developing high-quality E/E architecture for autonomous vehicles. This includes the advancement of VCUs, operating systems, and electrification modules.
