How rising vehicle autonomy impacts demand for autonomy domain controllers

AutotechInsight Analysis Monthly

Demand for ADCs will increase in tandem with the rising level of automation in vehicles. S&P Global Mobility expects ADCs with compute range of 11–200 TOPS to record the highest growth rate in 5–10 years. This type of SOCs could support up to Level 4 autonomous driving.

An autonomy domain controller (ADC) is a central processing unit that integrates inputs from several sensors around System-on-Chip (SoC) processors. Based on sensor data, the ADC evaluates information from multiple sources to arrive at an outcome or guidance for the driver or vehicle to implement, such as indicators to the driver to aid parking or execute a lane change. In autonomous vehicles, ADCs directly communicate with control systems to drive the vehicle independently of the driver.
