Oregon’s Polysync Technologies, which has a Detroit office and develops driverless vehicle technologies, has introduced Prism, its flagship vehicle interface platform. Prism is designed to allow OEMs and autonomous vehicle industry partners to interface with a wide range of vehicles and vehicle types, reduce development costs, and accelerate the time to market.
The platform’s Spark system on module delivers a software-defined vehicle interface. The Prism software development kit’s application programming interface offers by-wire vehicle control capabilities. Combined, the Prism software development kit and Spark system on module provide a compatible vehicle interface. Application programming interfaces allows software to interact with other software.
Prism’s standardized vehicle interface platform features plug-and-play choices for both vehicles and applications — which can be integrated into autonomous vehicle solutions.
It offers advanced automotive networking with a software-defined vehicle interface; a comprehensive, reflective applications programming interface providing control of vehicles with support for partner, autonomous vehicle, and cloud applications; and accelerated time to market, freeing developers to create mobility applications for new markets rather than develop custom vehicle interfaces that can’t scale. Users can write their own software and deploy it across many vehicle types.
“Prism helps OEMs and partners across the AV industry address their costly gaps in wasted autonomous vehicle development, scale their operations to meet growing demand for AV solutions, and safely deliver their solutions to market,” says Greg Drew, CEO of Polysync. “We’re incredibly excited to offer the industry’s first product family of scalable interface solutions.”
The platform is available in three product editions: the OEM edition for enterprise-level mobility solutions providers who need an integrated interface layer to leverage their existing autonomous vehicle architecture; the fleet edition for autonomous vehicle startups and engineering services firms with projects transitioning from test tracks to public roads; and the developer edition for advanced engineers developing and testing autonomous vehicle solutions.
Polysync’s products are in use in more than 17 countries, and it has offices in Detroit, Oregon, California, and Europe.
