Aptiv announces next generation Level 1-3 capable advanced driver-assistance systems platform

Aptiv has announced its next-generation Level 1-3 capable advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) platform.

According to Aptiv, its unique full-stack capabilities are helping customers realize their technology roadmaps and democratize advanced safety systems faster and at a lower cost. Considered a “game-changer” in the industry, the company’s first-generation automated driving satellite compute platform leverages the integration of Aptiv's Satellite Architecture and active safety software, perception systems and compute. Over the next few years, multiple OEM’s around the world will deploy Aptiv’s Satellite Architecture on more than 10 million vehicles.

Aptiv’s next-gen ADAS platform builds on this foundation. According to Aptiv, the platform will enable new levels of safety, comfort and convenience. The platform, which is purpose-built for scalability, cost-effectively spans all vehicle segments by managing the software complexity and supporting features that range from entry-level safety compliance to advanced highway pilot and parking assist.

Aptiv’s ADAS platform has the ability to incorporate future technologies and features, including those developed in collaboration with Motional, which provides further scalability to higher levels of automation.

“Our next-gen ADAS solution cost-effectively delivers safety features over the lifetime of the vehicle that exceed consumer expectations on a platform upon which OEMs can continue to innovate,” says Kevin Clark, CEO and president.

“Our unique position as the only provider of both the brain and the nervous system of the vehicle makes Aptiv the partner of choice for developing software-defined safety solutions that can be democratized as they mature.”

As part of Smart Vehicle Architecture, Aptiv’s next-gen ADAS platform is fully compatible with emerging zone control architectures. Through the creation of new features and services that can be updated over-the-air (OTA), this enables new business models for OEMs.

Aptiv’s next-gen ADAS platform also applies an Industry 5.0 approach to safety, which ensures that the driver and the vehicle work together flawlessly. Using the latest generation of up-integrated driver-state sensing and interior sensing solutions – augmented by scalable software – Aptiv’s platform verifies if the driver’s eyes are on the road, while also recognizing and responding to body positioning, gestures and eye movement to provide a higher level of safety.

The next-gen ADAS platform continues the acceleration of software-defined vehicles through Aptiv’s scalable full-stack features and offerings, including: Proven Software Stack; Next-Generation Sensor Suite; Advanced Sensor Fusion and Development Tool Chain.
