Dynamic Compute Power for an AI-Driven Future

New driver-assistance packages are being released with almost every vehicle update as advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) continue to evolve. The introduction of AI-enabled product development is helping fuel this growing demand for more dynamic compute, which in turn is improving road safety and the driving experience, and taking us closer to autonomous vehicles.

As vehicles introduce more automated driving functions, it is important that they have the best foundation to keep pace with ongoing technology advancements and software requirements.

The Arm architecture offers three functional safety modes and built-in cybersecurity, together with high-performance compute platforms developed specifically for vehicles with ADAS and autonomous functionality.

Arm and Nuro Deliver AI-first Autonomous Technology for Commercial Scale


Collaboration between Arm and Nuro is accelerating progress toward an autonomous future. The combination of Arm's scalable, performant, safety-enabled AE solutions and the AI-first Nuro Driver technology unlocks exciting potential for commercial and consumer applications, bringing the benefits of autonomous, intelligent technology to the world.

Start Designing Immediately with Arm-based Automotive Solution Stacks

Arm-based virtual platforms have been developed for ADAS and autonomous driving by our ecosystem partners to enable both accelerated product development and reduced time to market. With these platforms, designer can start work immediately, rather than having to wait for physical hardware to add to a feature prototype. The ADAS stack can be used ‘as is’ from IP to Arm-based hardware, or adapted to meet development needs.

Solutions to Bring the Software-Defined Vision into Focus

Together with leaders from across the automotive supply chain, Arm is working to meet the needs of ADAS and autonomous driving, as well as to address the challenges of software portability, cloud-native mixed-criticality, and seamless deployment. Our goal is to bring us closer to a software-defined future.

Four Pillars to Achieve the Software-Defined Vehicle Vision

Industry collaboration, standards, modern methodology, and vision stimulation are the four key pillars that can help make software-defined vehicles a reality. These are all practical approaches that the automotive and technology industries can take now to accelerate our path to software-defined vehicles and address the key challenges ahead.

SOAFEE Brings Us Closer to a Software-Defined Architecture

The Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge (SOAFEE) initiative offers a cloud-native architecture enhanced for mixed-criticality automotive applications and enables the functional safety and real-time capabilities required for autonomous workloads.

SOAFEE SIG White Paper

There have been a range of SOAFEE achievements during the past year, including a new architecture release, integration labs and SOAFEE blueprints, which showcase practical implementations of software-defined vehicles using modern software technologies. Learn all about these achievements in this updated SOAFEE whitepaper.

Delivering a Software-Defined Future

As vehicle functions are increasingly defined by software and data-driven intelligence, not only do automotive manufacturers need to become more agile, but consumers can expect their vehicle experience to improve as the vehicle gets older. Hear from Arm automotive expert, Robert Day, about these market trends and how the industry can meet this moment.
