Chinese automaker Dongfeng Motor is developing software for automated driving to use in its passenger electric vehicles, based on the latest high-performance processor A1000 offered by Chinese auto chip startup Black Sesame, according to a Wednesday announcement. The vehicles, scheduled for mass production in 2023, will be capable of navigating themselves on Chinese highways and in a parking lot, with a computing capacity of 58 trillion operations per second (TOPs). By comparison, Tesla’s full self-driving computer runs at 144 TOPs. Backed by big names such as German parts supplier Bosch and Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi, Black Sesame said it has also secured an undisclosed amount of strategic funding from the automaker.
