Panasonic introduces Neuron. Don’t worry, it’s super easy to understand. Right?
Panasonic hit the stage at CES 2024 to announce its High-Performance Compute (HPC) system. It’s named Neuron (clever, right?), and from what we can decipher, it’s a computing platform that includes both hardware and software aimed at extending a vehicle’s potential lifecycle by reducing the number of traditional high-cost components and replacing them with new versions that can be upgraded over the life of the vehicle.
For the truly techy car enthusiasts out there, here’s Panasonic’s overview:
“With a streamlined design, the Neuron HPC incorporates up-integration capability by consolidating multiple ECUs into one centralized nucleus to handle all levels of ADAS, chassis, body, and in-cabin infotainment features.”
