Concepts for improved availability and computational power in automated driving

S Grubmueller, G Stettinger, D Nesic, D Watzenig



Automated vehicles are required to operate on highways and in complex urban scenarios. To safely handle these complex environmental influences, sophisticated automated driving functions demand a high availability of all involved components in combination with increased computational power. Particular multi-core platforms are deployed to cope with these demands. To achieve higher system availability for SAE level 3 and higher, fail operational concepts from system level down to Microcontroller Unit (MCU) level are needed. These concepts include hardware as well as software requirements and are discussed in this paper. For an increased computing performance, the idea and further the model of a..
