Black Sesame Technologies Chongqing Autonomous Driving Big Data Center was founded in Chongqing Xiantao Big Data Valley, becoming a new engine for the industry’s growth, on December 30, 2020.
In recent years, Chongqing has been developing the autonomous driving industry at a rapid pace. It fully utilizes its competitiveness in policies, talent, venues, and industrial layout, to build a complete industrial chain driven by big data and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. As a result, Chongqing has become the forefront of autonomous driving in China.
Black Sesame Technologies (BST) is a high-tech company working on the development of visual perception technologies and chips. It mainly offers embedded AI perceptual computing platforms for autonomous driving systems. The company launched HuaShan-2 A1000 in June 2020, the only made-in-China chip that supports Level 3 and above autonomous driving systems.
The Big Data Center is expected to rely on BST’s self-developed core technologies and industrial ecosystem, to offer one-stop autonomous driving big data solutions about data collection, data in-depth processing, model simulation, and data analysis and processing, for auto companies, Tier-1 manufacturers, research institutes, and various software platforms.
By building big data public service platforms for advanced driver-assistance and autonomous driving, the Big Data Center will pool data resources covering diverse driving scenarios, lay a solid data-related foundation to realize autonomous driving, and support industrial partners to carry out rapid prototyping of Level 1-Level 4 perceptual system and decision-making system.
Johnson Shan, Founder and CEO of BST, said: “Helped by the Big Data Center, BST will make use of industrial competitiveness of Chongqing; settling down in Xiantao International Big Data Valley, it is about to build the best autonomous driving big data center in China. Thus, the country’s high-level autonomous driving industry is expected to welcome rapid progress.”
