Xilinx, ZF to jointly enable AI innovation, autonomous driving development
Xilinx and ZF Friedrichshafen announced a new strategic collaboration in which Xilinx technology will power ZF's highly-advanced artificial intelligence-based automotive control unit, called the ZF ProAI, to enable automated driving applications. At CES 2019, Xilinx and ZF announced a new strategic collaboration in which Xilinx MPSoC technology will power the ZF ProAI platform to enable automated driving applications. ZF is using the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platform to handle real-time data aggregation, pre-processing, and distribution, as well as to provide compute acceleration for the AI processing in ZF's new AI-based electronic control unit. ZF selected this adaptable, intelligent platform because it provides the processing power scalability and flexibility essential for the ZF ProAI platform to be customized for each of its customer's unique requirements.
