Session Abstract

As Autonomous Driving (AD) technologies roll out from development to deployment, vendors are demanding production-ready embedded solutions. Arm IP becomes a natural choice, combining high performance general-purpose compute with custom workload-specific acceleration in a reduced power envelope. However, porting existing AD software stacks to another platform is not without pitfalls. In this presentation, we discuss the challenges faced – with emphasis on hardware acceleration of neural networks – porting the open-source Autoware AD stack to an Arm-based system.
