Kodiak Robotics is moving its AI Perception and Machine Learning Systems to Ambarella’s CV3-AD685 AI system on chip for self-driving trucks

Kodiak Robotics is to use Ambarella’s CV3-AD685 AI domain control system-on-chip (SoC) as a complete embedded compute system for driverless trucks.

The CV3 provides a complete embedded solution for Kodiak’s multi-sensor perception, fusion and path planning, running neural networks while processing multiple cameras, lidars and radars.

Kodiak has already logged over 300,000 miles on Ambarella’s CV2 AI perception SoC while delivering over 875 loads, demonstrating that Kodiak Driver software and with help from the Ambarella hardware can withstand the rigorous environment of highway trucking.

“The CV3-AD685 enables the Kodiak Driver, Kodiak’s autonomous system, to turn sensor data into actionable insight with lower latency, lower power consumption, and higher reliability,” said Don Burnette, Kodiak’s Founder and CEO. “We are excited to exhibit a Kodiak autonomous truck at Ambarella’s invitation-only event during CES for the second year in a row, demonstrating how our partnership furthers the mission of autonomous trucking.”

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Kodiak as we pave the way together for the future of autonomous trucking,” said Fermi Wang, President and CEO at Ambarella. “Our CV3-AD685 SoC provides the autonomous vehicle industry with the processing performance needed to set new benchmarks in AI-based autonomous safety, efficiency and innovation.”;
