Sweden’s Zenuity has selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to provide artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure it needs in order to develop next generation autonomous driving systems.
HPE will provide Zenuity with core data processing services that will allow it to gather, store, organize and analyze the data it generates globally from its network of test vehicles and software development centres.
Zenuity is a joint venture between Volvo Cars (VCC) and Veoneer.
Dennis Nobelius, Zenuity’s chief executive, says: “These are the crucial building blocks of the autonomous driving cars of the future. HPE is providing us with the foundations upon which everything else is built.”
Antonio Neri, Chief Executive Officer, HPE, adds: “The paradigm shift we’ve seen in the past few years has been remarkable, with autonomous vehicles presenting the biggest opportunity we’ve seen in decades to disrupt and revolutionize the automotive industry. To meet this challenge, optimizing the convergence of HPC, data analytics and artificial intelligence is vital.”
Deployment is due to begin rollout in summer 2020. The initial rollout will take place in Sweden, with plans for global deployment in the near future.
