Continental has implemented the first cross-domain high-performance computer in a vehicle. The show car is capable of advanced functions such as automated parking.

The cross-domain high-performance computer (HPC) contains cockpit and vehicle functions developed by Continental. The SDV uses the cloud-based Continental Automotive Edge Framework (CAEdge), a modular hardware and software platform. CAEdge connects the vehicle with the cloud and offers numerous possibilities for the development, provision and maintenance of software-intensive system functions through a virtual workbench. The implementation utilized Qualcomm Technologies' Snapdragon Ride Flex System-on-Chip (SoC) with pre-integrated Snapdragon Ride Vision perception stack, which supports multi-modal critical workloads on a single chip.

The HPC platform in the SDV vehicle enables automated parking functions with holistic motion control, ultrasonic sensors, an integrated braking system and all-round vision cameras. “The goal is not only to show how well functions like autonomous parking work, but also how well multiple technologies can be integrated and work side-by-side in HPC-based vehicle architectures within a software-defined vehicle”, says Jean-François Tarabbia, Head of Architecture and Connectivity at Continental Automotive.
