Watch John McElroy as he learns of the advanced safety engineering underway by Automotive Electronics leader, Renesas. Their focus is not just on self-driving, but rather on safe-driving using a fully balanced architecture with intelligent fail operational redundancy while retaining realistic power/heat specifications.
This is an architecture that can actually be built by carmakers. Six computers in 2 housings consuming a total of 25 watts – that’s about 10% of a typical Intel Xeon server or a couple Nvidia Graphics cards. And leaves room for secure communication overhead to prevent a hacker from taking over the car.
