SELF-DRIVING
SECURE AND SAFE

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are the foundation of increasingly automated cars. NXP masters the full complexity of ‘self-driving robot’ technology. Our solutions help ensure that every journey will be safe, secure, and enjoyable.

HOW WE’RE A PART OF IT

An automated vehicle is more than just a brain on four wheels. To make precise, safety-related decisions, an array of complementary sensor technologies needs to draw a high-precision digital map of the car’s environments and accurately detect objects. As autonomous cars are expected to generate +1GB of data per minute, cars need to securely process multiple streams of information with flawless intelligence. Just like the human body, strong reflexes will be required in addition to the central brain to meet this challenge. At the same time, automated cars need smart actuators to generate power, put the car in motion, and regulate systems.

NXP covers the complete self-driving portfolio with solutions that sense, think and act.

  • Sensing: Our radar, secure V2X, and vision technologies act as a vehicle’s state-of-the-art eyes and ears.
  • Thinking: Holistic intelligence across all architecture domains enables reliable decision-making. Sensor fusion at high performance and low power is at its core.
  • Acting: We offer a range of smart actuators—including motor control, power/battery management, intelligent amplifiers, and LED drivers.

RADAR

We’re a leader in radar-based ADAS semiconductors, with an estimated 50% of all car radar modules shipped in 2016 relying on NXP processing and front-end technology to make life safer for drivers and passengers.

SENSOR FUSION

Autonomous vehicles must coordinate input from numerous sensors throughout the car to make decisions. Our BlueBox platform fuses these disparate data streams to create 360° awareness around the vehicle.
