The partnership follows their work together in the ten-partner-strong ES3CAP collaborative project, led by Kalray and announced in 2019. The ES3CAP program, with a budget of €22.2 million over 3 years, aims to build a hardware and software platform intended for manufacturers developing critical applications requiring high computing capacity in the fields of aeronautics (aviation, flying cabs, UAVs), defense and, autonomous vehicles.

EasyMile’s technology interacts with all kinds of next-generation radars, cameras, and lidar sensors to autonomize a range of vehicles. Its vehicle-agnostic software makes it the partner of choice for global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). As a fabless company, EasyMile develops autonomous vehicle solutions that tackle identified use-cases very precisely using common-core, unique technology. EasyMile’s solutions require underlying platforms providing both safety and performance.

Benoit Perrin, Managing Director of EasyMile: “Safety and performance reliability are key to embedded systems. This collaboration with Kalray, which started with the ES3CAP program, matches the high criteria we expect of our partners and we are delighted to be working with them.”

Eric Baissus, CEO of Kalray: ”EasyMile is one of the most advanced companies delivering safe solutions for autonomous vehicles. For us, this collaboration is further evidence of the value that our MPPA® intelligent processors and SuperECU® solution can bring to easily build safe autonomous systems.”

Autonomous vehicles require ECUs (“Electronic Computing Unit”) capable of running a multitude of applications in parallel with no compromise on safety. Kalray’s SuperECU®, based on Kalray MPPA® Intelligent Processor, is a patented platform capable of providing both the demanding performance required to compute functions such as artificial intelligence algorithms but also to support multi-applications with different levels of criticality on the same chip. Kalray’s MPPA® processor is one of the rare solutions on the market to ensure complete freedom from interference between these applications, which is a key attribute in building safe systems.

In addition, Kalray intelligent processors are not only capable of executing AI algorithms but can also simultaneously execute a wide set of different processing such as mathematical algorithms, signal processing and networking software stacks. This heterogenous multi-processing capability is also a critical requirement for autonomous vehicles, and is a unique capability of Coolidge™, 3rd generation of MPPA® processor available now.

Världspremiär från Unicontrol: 3D-maskinstyrning utvecklad efter grävlastarens behov12.4.2021 06:00:00 CEST | Pressmeddelande

Först utvecklade Unicontrol världens första 3D-maskinstyrningssystem med inriktning på mindre grävmaskiner. Nu har danska Unicontrol kommit med en ny innovation och utvecklat ett intuitivt maskinstyrningssystem för grävlastare. Det har skett i nära samarbete med den svenska maskintillverkaren Huddig. Tillsammans har de utvecklat användarvänlig styrning åt maskinföraren, som både ökar användningsmöjligheterna och lönsamheten för grävlastare. Ju mindre maskinerna på en byggarbetsplats står still, desto bättre är det för det ekonomiska resultatet i ett byggprojekt. En grävlastare är en mer allsidig och flexibel maskin än en vanlig grävmaskin. Trots det blir maskintypen ofta bortvald på större byggarbetsplatser, eftersom de har saknat fullständig 3D-maskinstyrning av maskinens olika funktioner. Grävlastarna har inte kunnat samla in alla data och har heller inte varit med i byggbranschens digitaliseringsvåg. Denna utmaning har Unicontrol nu löst tillsammans med Huddig. Parterna har anlitat
