Samsung DRVLINE™ is a platform for building advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), built with a philosophy of being open, modular, and scalable. The platform is designed to accommodate a wide range of automated driving requirements, from ADAS and scaling upwards to support full autonomy.
DRVLINE is both a hardware and a software solution.
DRVLINE hardware is architected to be scalable, with a baseboard that acts as a functionally safe gateway to the vehicle, and expansion boards that can be stacked on top of the baseboard. The expansion boards provide additional compute, specialized SOCs, Accelerators, and also increase the number and variety of sensors supported. They can incrementally support more advanced ADAS and Autonomous features as the system requirements grow.
The DRVLINE vision of an open, modular and scalable platform is implemented in its accompanying software framework. DRVLINE builds upon and extends the AUTOSAR Adaptive platform, and runs on any POSIX OS. The DRVLINE framework ensures:
DRVLINE is designed to facilitate collaboration between multiple expert partners – Samsung’s and yours – bringing together groundbreaking technology to create the best possible customer experiences.
DRVLINE enables expansion of computational power and sensor variety with specialized silicon of your choice. On the software side, we enable high levels of software modularity and functional layering without compromising system performance or functional safety.
DRVLINE is structured to scale across car models and across levels of sophistication and capability. This promotes faster integration of multiple logical components for all levels of assisted driving and autonomy.
Samsung DRVLINE achieves its efficiency goals by internalizing a model of the world and all objects around the vehicle. This creates a common language of objects and classes by which all the software in the system can freely communicate. DRVLINE’s Software Framework creates high levels of modularity and functional layering, enabling multiple algorithms from multiple partners to seamlessly work together to solve large problems.
The Samsung DRVLINE platform offers significant benefits over ADAS systems with closed architectures and ecosystems.
The DRVLINE architecture gives you the flexibility to interchange and upgrade hardware and software as requirements change and technology matures. This allows you to meet the challenges of a global market without worrying about the underlying technology.
Together with TTTech, a global leader in the field of robust networking and functional safety controls, DRVLINE is built to ASIL-D standards and is designed to work reliably regardless of component performance.
The DRVLINE platform’s open architecture empowers you to leverage your own brand, your own car, and your own technology’s strength. Whether you have a preferred configuration for sensors, compute and algorithms, or want best in class, curated solutions from Samsung or our partner ecosystem, DRVLINE gives you the choice to customize to your technological needs.
The DRVLINE Platform enables an ecosystem for mass collaboration, enabling the best technologies from different vendors to easily work together. DRVLINE is open to innovative silicon, sensors, and algorithms.
