Denso Corp. and Toshiba Corp. have partnered to jointly develop an artificial intelligence technology called Deep Neural Network-Intellectual Property (DNN-IP) to help advance driver assistance and automated driving technologies.

The new technology will be used in image recognition systems that have been developed independently by the two companies.

According to Denso, DNN is an algorithm modeled after the neural networks of the human brain and is expected to perform recognition processing as accurately, or better, than the human brain. This algorithm will allow the system to identify different road traffic situations and a variety of obstacles and road markings.

Due to the rapid progress in DNN technology, Denso Corp. and Toshiba Corp. plan to make the technology flexibly extendable to various network configurations, Denso adds. Additionally, the companies will design the technology to have the ability to be implemented on in-vehicle processors that are smaller, consume less power and feature other optimizations, Denso said.

Toshiba will also partition this jointly developed DNN-IP technology into dedicated hardware components and implement them on its in-vehicle image recognition processors.
