Ambarella and Longhorn Partner to Develop an Advanced Automatic Parking System (APS) Platform

Sponsored by Businesswire

Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA), a leading developer of high-resolution
video processing and computer vision semiconductors, and Longhorn Auto
Co., Ltd., a supplier of driver assistance products based on vision,
ultrasonic sensors, and microwave radar technology for global automotive
OEMs, today announced that they are partnering to develop an advanced
automatic parking system (APS) platform.

The new APS platform is based on Ambarella’s CV22AQ CVflow®
computer vision chip. Combined with Longhorn’s production-proven
ultrasonic sensors, 360° around view monitoring (AVM) technologies, and
visual perception algorithms, the platform delivers rich and highly
accurate computer vision features, including parking space detection,
parking line recognition, lane departure warning, automatic emergency
braking (AEB), vehicle identification, obstacle classification, and map

“Longhorn has focused on the global automotive electronics industry for
many years — paying attention to innovation and investment in advanced
intelligent driving technology while accelerating sales of AVM,
rearview, and ultrasonic sensors. Our intelligent driving products,
currently being developed for mass production, have received positive
feedback from leading OEMs,” said Xiaoping Luo, general manager of
Longhorn. “Longhorn appreciates Ambarella’s market strategy and their
investment in automotive visual perception, especially the introduction
of the CV22 series. Its CVflow architecture supports high convolutional
neural network (CNN) performance and meets the design requirements of
Longhorn’s APS hardware platform.”

“We are pleased to partner with Longhorn to deliver a robust hardware
platform for the next generation of automatic parking systems,” said
Fermi Wang, CEO of Ambarella. “Longhorn’s advanced visual perception
algorithms combined with our CV22AQ SoC offer a powerful and unique
solution that fuses visual perception and ultrasonic technologies.”

Manufactured using an advanced 10-nanometer process, the CV22AQ chip
enables the design of compact, high-performance automotive systems with
ultra-low power operation. The CV22AQ’s CVflow architecture delivers
computer vision processing at full 4K or 8-megapixel resolution at 30
frames per second (fps), while its image signal processor (ISP) provides
outstanding imaging in low light conditions and high-contrast scenes,
further enhancing the computer vision capabilities of the chip. The
CV22AQ also includes a suite of advanced security features to protect
against hacking, including secure boot, TrustZone™, I/O virtualization,
and support for online upgrades over the air (OTA).
