An Integrated Hardware Platform for Intelligent Transportation Systems


We are building a fully reconfigurable and integrated hardware platform for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and vehicle to everything (V2X) communication.


The Purpose

Our project would eliminate up to 90% of road accidents, and would result in a collective time saving of nearly 1 billion hours every year. This significant time saving would also greatly increase productivity and mental health worldwide, contributing greatly to the global economy. Industrial fleet management will greatly improve throughput of large logistics and delivery vehicles on highways, and global traffic flow routing and optimization will reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions. The use of electric vehicle to grid communication will also ensure optimal power usage and conserve resources.

The Technology

For the purpose of building a fully reconfigurable hardware platform, we are using field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for implementing computer vision, sensor fusion and machine learning algorithms in hardware. We are using software defined radios (SDRs) for vehicle to everything (V2X) communication, which includes infrastructure, other vehicles, pedestrians, and the electric power grid. Our SDR implementation ensures that we can adapt to any communication protocol, including WiFi, Bluetooth, 2G/3G/4G LTE/5G and the IEEE 802.11p DSRC protocol, on a single platform. Our technology is hardware upgradeable, meaning we can implement the latest algorithms upto 1000x faster than in software.

Additional Details

> Reconfigurable hardware means we can upgrade to the latest and fastest hardware algorithms implementations. > An interactive augmented reality (AR) heads up display (HUD) will display information to the driver in real time, on the windshield in front of them. > Infinite connection capability thanks to the software defined radio - vehicle to everything (V2X) using any protocol within range. > Cloud based data analytics would be used for predictive maintenance and fuel economy optimization, as well as traffic and fleet management solutions.
