Edinburgh Software Company to enable cars with artificial intelligence

Codeplay Software has announced it is working with Renesas, a leading Japanese semiconductor company, to enable their next generation of advanced automotive processors. The technology will be included in future cars that interpret the surroundings and safely take control to avoid accidents or aid with driving functions.

This new relationship will also attract at least 30 new software jobs into Edinburgh, further enhancing its reputation for attracting high-tech employment.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is already available today in high-end cars providing functions such as adaptive cruise control and self parking. The next generation extends these functions relieving the driver of more responsibilities including steering, avoiding accidents and ultimately take full control towards the autonomous car.

Codeplay’s software is using its technology and experience applied to games and mobile phones over the last 15 years to enable Renesas’ latest automotive processors with an advanced vision processing and machine learning platform.

“Codeplay has already worked directly with the world’s greatest processors providing advanced software solutions” said Andrew Richards, Founder and CEO of Codeplay Software, “We are excited to be enabling Renesas great products. It endorses the company’s product and the leadership reputation of the software engineers.

About Codeplay

Codeplay is internationally recognized for expertise in heterogeneous systems, and has many years of experience with OpenCL™, SYCL™, Vulkan™ and specialized tools for complex processor architectures. Codeplay is enabling advanced vision processing and machine learning C++ applications using ComputeAorta, an implementation of OpenCL for heterogeneous processing, and ComputeCpp™, a product based on the SYCL open standard for single-source programming using completely standard C++. Codeplay has earned a reputation as one of the global leaders in compute processing systems. For more information, visit www.codeplay.com.

Codeplay has a strong recruitment program and actively invites the best software engineers to join the Edinburgh team. They are licensed visa sponsors and have many years experience in welcoming people to work with them from all over the world. Contact the company directly to learn about the great work environment and opportunities.

Codeplay is a real home-grown, Scottish success story. Codeplay was founded by Andrew Richards and Jens-Uwe Dolinsky. Andrew started his career in the 8-bit days writing games for the ZX Spectrum from home, progressing up to writing large console games on the Sega Megadrive and PlayStation. He then decided he was interested in producing new technology for game developers to enable them to do new things. It was becoming possible to do some interesting new things on the graphics hardware that was being introduced. So he started a company with Uwe (who has a PhD in Robotics) to develop technology to let programmers take software they had written for normal computers and run it on new graphics-capable computers. It seemed like an interesting revolution that was about to happen. That was more than a decade ago and to be honest, it took a bit longer than he expected to happen!

Codeplay first operated in 2002 out of a small 2nd floor office in Edinburgh’s Hanover St, before rapidly expanding until in 2017 they are proud to announce a staff of 70 in Argyle House, with 2 colleagues working remotely in Toronto and the Isle of Skye. During this period, Codeplay have always tried to maintain their friendly work culture along with the growth in their workforce and market reach. Codeplay is extremely proud of their Silver Accreditation from Investors in People and is actively working towards Gold Accreditation.

 

 

Intercede offers trust management expertise to TechWorks’ automotive security initiative AESIN

Intercede offers trust management expertise to TechWorks’ automotive security initiative AESIN

 

Membership to AESIN will see Intercede provide expertise and guidance on security for the automotive market

 

London, England/Washington DC, 5 July 2017 – Today, digital identity and credentials expert Intercede announces its membership to AESIN, the Automotive Electronic Systems Innovation Network, and one of the communities that make up UK industry association TechWorks.

TechWorks is an industry association at the core of UK deep technology, with the ambition to develop the UK’s position as a global technology super-power. Within TechWorks, there are technical and business communities that empower innovation, collaboration, business growth and investment. AESIN is one of TechWorks’ connected communities; a dedicated UK initiative focused on the accelerated and advanced delivery of Electronic Systems (ES) into vehicles and infrastructure operated by the UK Trade Association – NMI.

Intercede joins both TechWorks and AESIN, which will involve the company offering the trust management expertise it has developed in the enterprise space to guide rules, facilitate collaboration and share knowledge on how security can be applied to the automotive market. More specifically, Intercede joins the automotive security steering group of AESIN and will lead the cybersecurity roadmap for the group. The company was invited to participate after founding the Cyber Security Consortium for Connected Vehicles (CCV).

Working with other members of AESIN, which include vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and other security vendors, Intercede aims to help market players navigate the cyber security landscape of connected vehicles and infrastructure to ensure threats are understood and mitigated appropriately. Intercede will also assist the group in publishing materials for the wider automotive community to use as best practice and guidance for security.

Nick Cook, CIO, Intercede commented: “As vehicles and infrastructure become connected, the relationship between the different components becomes complex – who and what do you trust? So many different manufacturers and suppliers are involved in creating connected vehicles, therefore it’s important to ensure everyone involved is aware of the security risks that can arise. We are thrilled to be joining the AESIN community and we look forward to sharing our experiences of trust management practices with a thriving yet still vulnerable market.”

Paul Jarvie, AESIN Director at TechWorks added: “AESIN’s ethos is ‘better together’; innovation is born from collaboration, and we need experts like Intercede to help us accelerate the growth of UK technology markets. Intercede brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to AESIN, which acts as a network for everyone in the supply chain to discuss concerns, problems and ideas. We have no doubt that Intercede’s role in the community will help to establish best practice for everyone’s mutual gain and protection.”

AESIN’s annual automotive security conference will be taking place on 5th July at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry.

£55m now available to develop test bed infrastructure for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in the UK

Up to £55 million is available to develop test bed infrastructure that will improve and create world-leading capabilities in the UK.

The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) is investing up to £55 million to make the UK’s connected and autonomous vehicle testing ecosystem the world’s most effective.

Here in the UK we have a strong automotive and technology heartland in the West Midlands through to Europe’s only megacity, London. Projects should look to build on these strengths, integrating existing proving grounds and public road test sites to improve capabilities and create new ones, and develop a national cluster of excellence.

This competition is part of the test bed programme for the government’s Industrial Strategy.

AESIN is delighted to be supporting this activity which will be of value of our AESIN Members. 

More details can be found on the CCAV website.
