NI and Konrad Technologies Sign Strategic Agreement to Accelerate Autonomous Vehicle Test
January 21, 2021
NI and Konrad Technologies (KT) announced they have entered into a strategic agreement to develop test systems and solutions for autonomous driving software and hardware validation.
AD requires a mix of technologies such as machine learning, LiDAR, and imaging radar to come to life. It involves a process that enables test systems to adapt in tandem to validate the embedded software required to operate autonomous vehicles (AVs) safely in real-world scenarios. By combining NI’s software-connected test solutions with KT’s system integration and solution delivery for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) test, the two companies expect to streamline validation to accelerate the shift to self-driving cars. While the plan is that the test solutions will scale across fleet management, data utilization, and sensor test, initial solutions will focus on high bandwidth data recording and hardware-in-the-loop test systems for testing ADAS and AD software algorithms.
