Tier IV, a provider of open-source autonomous driving (AD) technology, has launched A.D.E.E.A (Autonomous Driving Electric and Electronic Architecture), a solution that will support the design and development of E/E (Electric/Electronic) architecture for AVs. Consisting of a reference design of E/E architecture, which itself plays a key role in the development of software-defined vehicles, A.D.E.E.A can be customized based on the customer’s requirements – helping them accelerate the development of new autonomous vehicles.

In addition to creating AD software, TIER IV is also involved in the design and development of several AV components and features, including the ADS (Autonomous Driving System), VCU (Vehicle Control Unit), Drive-By-Wire, and IVI. With its partners, Tier IV will continue to develop VCUs, operating systems, and electrification modules as it aims to supply advanced E/E architecture for autonomous vehicles.
