Building the AI/ML Data Autobahn for ADAS/AV Development


ADAS/AV data systems face three important challenges: movement and management of terabytes to exabytes of data; massively parallel, complex data streams, including images, videos, LiDAR, radar, and vehicle data; and data silos created by data globally dispersed across hybrid infrastructure and geopolitical barriers.

This 30-minute Webinar will benefit not only automotive ADAS/AV engineers and managers looking to overcome these challenges, but also those in other markets who are adopting AI/ML methodologies. The growing proliferation of cameras and IoT devices are creating data tsunamis in other markets, including surveillance, energy, and smart manufacturing, among many others. With ADAS/AD data growing exponentially, finding the high-speed on ramp for your data is the new high-impact, strategic focus area for engineering and IT leaders.

Topics include:

  • An impact analysis of decreasing the total cost and time spent on ingesting, understanding, finding, and delivering quality data to ADAS/AV teams
  • A demonstration of a software architecture that can deliver up to a 10x data access time improvement and a 30% decrease in end-to-end ADAS/AV program time
  • Highlights of how an ultra-fast, scalable data fabric enables large software teams to increase collaboration and integration efficiency and reduce time to market
