NewControl - Integrated, Fail-Operational, Cognitive Perception, Planning and Control Systems for Highly Automated Vehicles
The main goal of NewControl is to deliver fail-operational holistic virtualized platforms for vehicular subsystems that are critical to automated driving (SAE Levels 3+), enabling mobility-as-a-service for next-generation highly automated vehicles.
NewControl will develop and deliver virtualized platforms for each vehicular sub-system essential to autonomous operation at SAE Level 3+. Each of these unifies the critical components required to realize a specific function – perception, cognition, control – through vertical integration within an adaptive (not rigid) architectural framework.
The resulting virtual platforms effectively deliver specific functionalities as services to the vehicular platform, abstracting internal implementation, enabling portability to different application domains, and facilitating modular development of automation that is guaranteed as safe by design.
NewControl receives funding from the European H2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the grant agreement n. 826653
TTTech Auto will contribute to the project with an Embedded Computing Platform for fail-operational HW/SW computing architecture. The novel architecture will improve the performance of the computing platform and will focus on increasing the energy-efficiency for all required applications
(i.e. fusion content analysis decision making etc.).
The platform will support all functions up to ASIL D (featuring extended error check & correction, built-in self-test & various monitors addressing functional requirements such safety, reliability, robustness & dependability to meet SAE Level 3+ ADFs).
