Intrepid Control Systems Inc. in Madison Heights Friday introduced its Autonomous ONE motherboard, an all-in-one data logger that links various components of autonomous vehicle technology.
Systems in the motherboard include the autonomous CPU, GPS/GNSS, and connectors for sensors including cameras, radar, LiDAR, and other inputs.
“Most autonomous development vehicles employ a multitude of different proprietary systems, components, and computers from different sources, requiring developers to waste a lot of time trying to tie them all together,” says Don Hatfield, director of global sales at Intrepid. “Our Autonomous ONE motherboard provides a single, clean platform to quickly and easily connect everything into a single open platform.”
The motherboard works with all autonomous CPUs that support PCIe, MIPI camera inputs, and Ethernet. It can hold up to 54 automotive Ethernet ports, 48 CAN/CAN FD channels, and 64 Terabytes of storage using PCIe 2.0 slots with NVMe SSD. High-speed serializer/deserializer camera interfaces are supported for the direct camera or sensor connection with a capacity of up to 28 cameras.
Autonomous ONE also can be used for automatic and manual remote download, control, and monitoring of data through a wireless 4G/5G or 60 GHzWiGig connection.
The motherboard is slated to be available at the end of 2019. Intrepid is introducing it at the CES technology exposition this week in Las Vegas.
