Subaru selects Xilinx to power new-generation EyeSight ADAS system

20 August 2020

Subaru has selected Xilinx to power its new vision-based advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) EyeSight, that will be integrated into the all-new Subaru Levorg

New ADAS technology debuts in the all-new Subaru Levorg for the Japanese market.

Xilinx, a supplier of programmable logic devices & inventor of the FPGA,  has announced that its technology is powering the new version of Subaru’s vision-based advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS), EyeSight. Integrated into the all-new Subaru Levorg, the new EyeSight system will provide advanced features including adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and pre-collision braking, putting best-in-class safety technology into the hands of consumers.

At Subaru, we continuously strive to make the Subaru brand prominent in our customers’ hearts and minds by focusing our efforts on providing ‘Enjoyment and Peace of Mind,’ – and we believe ADAS is one of the technologies that will help us achieve that goal,” said Tetsuo Fujinuki, Chief Technology Officer at Subaru Corporation. “Stereo cameras are at the heart of Subaru’s ADAS applications. Unlike common approaches, the image processing technology adopted in our new generation system scans everything captured by stereo cameras and creates high-precision 3D point clouds, enabling us to offer advanced features such as pre-collision braking at an intersection and assisting with hands-off driving in traffic congestion on a highway. Xilinx technology plays an important role in this. Because Xilinx automotive devices contain built-in capabilities that allow us to meet strict ASIL requirements, they are unquestionably the best technology to implement Subaru’s new ADAS vision system.

The Xilinx® Automotive-qualified (XA) Zynq® UltraScale+™ multi-processor system-on-a-chip (MPSoC) 16 nanometer technology provides the high-performance, ultra-low latency and functional safety (ASIL) capabilities that the EyeSight system requires to accurately depict and react to dynamic driving scenarios.

We are excited to see Xilinx automotive devices enabling the new generation of automotive safety for Subaru,” said Yousef Khalilollahi, Vice President of Sales, Asia-Pacific region at Xilinx. “Subaru’s name has long been synonymous with road safety and reliability, and we’re proud that our XA products have been selected to continue our shared vision of providing drivers with the most advanced safety features on the market.
