A Race Towards Autonomous Mobility: ASRock Industrial Empowers Dynamis PRC's Driverless Car for Formula Student

In a race towards victory, ASRock Industrial partners with Dynamis PRC to power up its race car's autonomous driving system for the Formula Student competition, speeding up development time while boosting performance for its ambitious targets in the race.

挑戰

Formula Student is one of the world's most competitive international automobile design competitions for university student teams. Each team designs and builds a formula-style competition vehicle to enter the race. After years of competition and practice, an Italian team Dynamis PRC achieved 4th place globally in 2019 in the combustion category and ranked 1st nationally in 2021. With the rising trend of autonomous car, they are racing to transform to a driverless prototype for the 2022 seasons and beyond. To finish the Formula Student race every year is a challenging project for the student teams, especially when designing a self-driving car that exhibits high performances and meets safety standards. The team not only needs to invest heavily in the R&D, manufacturing workforce and acquiring funds, they also need to complete the prototype design in nine months and pass the string tests to ensure that the vehicle can achieve optimal speed under safe conditions.

解決方案

ASRock Industrial collaborates with Dynamis PRC, providing its latest Intel® 10th Gen. CPU motherboard IMB-1222 to power up the prototype's electric system conversion into the driverless car. In the driverless system, there are cameras and lidar connected to the motherboard, forming sensory data through perception, mapping, localization, and control algorithms. Moreover, the Inertial Navigation System unit is used to obtain measurements on speed, acceleration, and other critical areas for precise calculations that ensure reliable information is added to input commands for the vehicle.

The IMB-1222 with the latest Intel® 10th Gen. Core™ i9 Processor and a GPU card run Robot Operating System (ROS) on Ubuntu, Linux, and all other driverless algorithms, powering the neural network of the driverless system for real-time computing and AI inference. Through utilizing deep learning, the system can precisely determine the position of all items within the vehicle’s proximity and calculate the optimal trajectory for effective and optimal movements.

On top of autonomous system management, the IMB-1222 also facilitates powering of critical safety indicators such as steering system, electronic brake system, and other safety measures while navigating the car. A self-developed PCB- the Autonomous System Unit, manages the physical steering actuator control and connects with the rest of the car via CAN Bus while communicating with the computer via RS232, utilizing the benefit of IMB-1222 serial ports. In addition, Dynamis PRC also developed a battery pack to power the IMB-1222 and GPU package. The battery permits vehicle testing for approximately one hour at the maximum performance level.
