Arm: Safety Is Automated
Every year 1.25 million people die in road accidents and 94 percent of these accidents are estimated to be caused by human error. As roads become more crowded, it’s vital to make cars safer and Arm believe autonomous vehicles could be the answer.
However, cars with high levels of autonomy may need at least 100 times more computing performance by 2024 compared with 2016 models—all with guaranteed functional safety.
Functional safety enables faults to be diagnosed and safely mitigated, ensuring the safe operation of a system if a malfunction occurs. It’s an essential requirement for many automotive applications. Arm is investing in the broadest functional safety solutions in the industry with all new Arm processors having proven systematic capability for functional safety. Arm IP is in 65 percent of the silicon used in advanced driver- assistance system (ADAS) applications.
