Klas Unveils RAVEN: lightening the load on the journey to Autonomous Vehicles.
DUBLIN, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Klas, a global leader in edge intelligence, today announced the launch of RAVEN: an end-to-end, modular solution for autonomous vehicle (AV) and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) research and development. RAVEN gives developers every piece of hardware required to ingest and store massive amounts of in-vehicle data, along with the connectivity and compute capabilities they need to turn terabytes of data into high-performing AV algorithms, all underpinned by a software-agnostic virtual environment.
RAVEN includes the following core modules:
"Accelerating the development of AVs requires the building and maintenance of fleets of test cars. This requires numerous pieces of hardware that all have to fit together into one system with seamless data colection. RAVEN simplifies that entire process," said Frank Murray, CTO of Klas. "With RAVEN, OEMs and Tier 1s get a flexible, modular solution with the key functions of datalogging, high performance compute, and connectivity all in a standard 19" rack format."
Klas has decades of experience working in highly regulated industries, like transport and defence. It's hardware, over the years has had to operate in extreme, and austere environments. All this learning has gone into each RAVEN module ensuring its ease of optimal performance. Klas' open, modular approach means that Tier 1s and OEMs can select best-of-breed hardware and software for Autonomous Vehicle development, all in a rugged vehicle-centric form factor.
"Self-driving cars must be trusted to perform in all road conditions and keep up with constantly evolving regulations, which is why it's critical to have a scalable solution that maximizes the number of test vehicles on the road at any given time. Instilling confidence in both regulators and consumers hinges on having evidence-based testing data collected at scale," said John Gallagher, CEO of Klas. "Historically, this has been difficult to do because of reliability and performance concerns along with size and power constraints, and we've solved both of those issues with RAVEN. It's rugged, compact, and truly built for the open road."
