Driven
by design

With our in-depth knowledge of edge-cloud, we are bringing the future of automotive closer, faster.

RAVEN (Ruggedized Autonomous Vehicle Network) makes it much easier to build AV test cars, or develop ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) technology in current vehicles.

High performance compute, storage and connectivity come as standard with inbuild power distribution, in a total solution with a plug-and-play form-factor.

RAVEN is designed to take the work out, and build reliability in. The open ecosystem, integrates existing or new elements, and upgrades easily giving developers a smoother drive into the future.

RAVEN Open Architecture

A holistic approach to data logging, compute, storage, and connectivity for ADS and ADAS development.

1. Data Logging

Supports CAN and Ethernet
interfaces, with up to 240TB of AV data storage, in a swappable cassette. Integrated compute for live preprocessing of data.

2. Networking:

1/10Gbps Ethernet switch, with native Automotive Ethernet (100MB and 1GB) support, future proofing access to the next generation of sensors and controllers.

3. High Performance Compute

GPU support to evolve AV algorithms and train deep neural networks. Supports virtualization for the secure running of any AV software invehicle.

4. Connectivity:

Connect in-vehicle over Wi-Fi and easily extend in-vehicle networks to the central office over LTE/5G networks. Supports SD-WAN for secure over the air access from anywhere.

5. Management and Monitoring

Reduced IT effort with secure remote management and monitoring, provisioning, and over-the-air updates, with Ansible automation and Nagios support.

6. Power

Inbuilt 12VDC power distribution, eliminating the need for external power inverters.

A Rolling Start for
AV Developers

Faster Deployments

A highly configurable development environment, requiring minimal installation effort that can be powered by the vehicles 12VDC supply

Field Proven

Compact and ruggedized modules designed for the extremes of life on the road. Adherence and compliance with numerous standards from FCC, IP, MIL to UL

Scalable

Easily integrate additional compute, storage, connectivity, or bring your own modules as your project needs evolve over time, all without breaking the bank

Klas Raven Before Others

RAVEN comes as a 19” (5U) rackmountable enclosure that is 10” deep. The enclosure has an in-built 12VDC power distribution to power modules. AV developers can easily configure their development environments with Klas modules, or bring their own customized modules.

RAVEN’s plug-n-play modules, make it easy to adapt to the development environment as your project needs evolve. Add additional data logging and storage for longer test drives, or swap out data storage for connectivity to access insights in real-time.

The Klas general compute, connectivity and networking modules can be fitted with battery backups, allowing AV developers to continue to communicate with the vehicle in the event of sudden power loss.

RAVEN also has full support for customized hardware.
