A leading automotive global supplier required a showroom style Automated Research Development Platform that could also serve as a fully functional Research and Development vehicle. The request included a clean integration of oddly-shaped sensors which could be fully accessible.
The company received an automated Lincoln MKZ with an impressive amount of LiDAR radar and integrated vision. The platform includes custom carbon fiber and fiberglass parts that are fully functional yet aesthetically pleasing. The vehicle is being used to develop Visteon’s DriveCore™ autonomous driving platform. This open development platform integrates LiDAR radar and vision data into a centralized failsafe processing system used for controlling ADAS and Automated vehicle features.
Visteon received a showroom style integrated platform with the functionality of an R&D style vehicle.
