Kodiak to exhibit self-driving truck at Ambarella event in Las Vegas during 2023 Consumer Electronics Show
Kodiak Robotics started a partnership with Ambarella, an edge AI semiconductor company, to integrate Ambarella’s CV2AQ AI perception system-on-chip (SoC) into its self-driving trucks for all camera data processing.
To kick off the partnership publicly, Kodiak will exhibit one of its self-driving trucks at Ambarella’s demo event in Las Vegas during the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
“Our focus on building the world’s safest and most reliable self-driving trucks requires us to seek out the best partners,” said Don Burnette, Founder and CEO, Kodiak. “Ambarella’s track record in building some of the market’s most advanced processors makes it an ideal partner for Kodiak. Ambarella’s focus on ADAS and autonomous technologies aligns our roadmaps even more closely. Lastly, Ambarella’s proven supply chain adds the confidence that its technology will be available to us when we need it.”
a safety-first approach, Kodiak continually evaluates technologies and hardware
that enhance its self-driving system. By incorporating the Ambarella CV2AQ SoC
in Kodiak’s self-driving system, Kodiak is optimizing its camera data processing
capabilities. The CV2AQ includes Ambarella’s proprietary CVflow® AI engine, and
provides industry-leading AI performance per watt along with advanced imaging
