Codeplay teams with Renesas to create 30 jobs in Edinburgh

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-09-13
Codeplay, the Edinburgh vision specialist, has teamed up with Renesas on driverless cars.

The development will create 30 jobs in Edinburgh.

“Codeplay has already worked directly with the world’s greatest processors providing advanced software solutions,” saysc 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.”

The collaboration between the companies will deliver ComputeAorta, Codeplay’s OpenCL open standard-based software framework for Renesas R-Car SoCs.

The new framework is designed to support software development for the R-Car’s latest image recognition IP, the IMP-X5, a multi-threading core optimized for computer vision and cognitive processing. Codeplay will also provide R-Car with ComputeCpp,  an implementation of the SYCL  open standard, enabling single source C++ software for high level and object-oriented programming.

The output from Codeplay and Resnesas will provide developers with standard software development tools and support for a wide range of open source computer vision or open source deep learning software for use in vehicles. Developers will be able to focus on innovation, and reuse software assets or take advantage of the latest innovations in computer vision and cognitive processing to minimise porting effort and accelerate time-to-market.

Codeplay was founded in 2002 and has grown from the two original founders into a team of 70 based in central Edinburgh.
