Financed projects

Creating innovation value from the NRDI fund

Neural network accelerator chip design is being developed by aiMotive partially financed by the NRDI fund

aiMotive uses the funding to further develop the chip design needed to accelerate the neural networks that form the basis of artificial intelligence. The goal of the supported project is to develop target hardware that is 25 times more powerful than its competitors. aiMotive is planning a solution that is uniquely capable of automatically processing image information and can be used in addition to self-driving cars, for example in virtual reality devices, or anywhere else where artificial intelligence needs to be applied with high efficiency.

Status: After 3 years of execution (2019-2021) the project was closed. The original goals were successfully delivered by the end of 2021. The maintenance period of the project is running from January 1, 2022 until December 31, 2024. The relevant press release is under News & Insights.

AImotive and C3S take self-driving car technology from the road to space

AImotive uses funding for the development of high-performance on-board computer hardware that can be integrated into a large satellite environment. C3S will adapt AImotive’s aiWare NN hardware acceleration technology in its space electronics platform to enable high performance AI capabilities in small, power-constrained satellites. The results of this collaboration are expected to accelerate the commercialization of a wide range of services for both specialized and mass-market applications, such as telecommunications, Earth and space observation, autonomous satellite operation and others.

Test and verification methods for autonomous driving functions and environmental sensing systems

EUREKA project testEPS, coordinated by aiMotive on the Hungarian side, successfully kicked off in 2021 September! 

testEPS stands for testing and verification Methods for Automated Driving Functions and Environmental Perception Systems. The aim of the project is to certify automated driving functions and environmental perception systems (EPS) and to create a unique Austrian-Hungarian cross-border testing region to cope with challenges that arise from different country specifics.
