NI and Seagate Collaborate to Improve How Data Accelerates Autonomous Vehicle Technology

NI (NASDAQ: NATI) and SeagateR Technology Holdings (NASDAQ: STX), a world
leader in data storage infrastructure solutions, today announced a new
collaboration to enhance data storage and transfer services, including a
first-of-its-kind advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) record offering

> . The announcement was made during NI
Connect <https://www.ni.com/en-us/events/niconnect.html> , the test and
measurement company’s premiere digital event for engineers.

The new ADAS record offering combines NI’s high performance in-vehicle data
logging systems with Seagate’s data transfer and edge storage services,
enabling original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers to
efficiently leverage data to ensure the safety and reliability of the next
generation of autonomous vehicles.

The latest autonomous vehicles require more real road data than ever before,
making efficient data storage all the more important. With this innovative
ADAS record offering, OEMs and suppliers can modernize their data storage
strategy from self-managed to storage as a service (StaaS), leading to
reduced costs and efficient storage. The offering combines NI’s Data Record
System AD

>  in-vehicle data logger for ADAS and
autonomous vehicles with Seagate’s LyveT Mobile edge data transfer services

“Seagate’s Lyve Mobile helps avoid lengthy lead times and added cost for
edge data storage hardware by moving from a CapEx to an OpEx model,” said
Chad Chesney, NI senior vice president and general manager of the
Transportation Business Unit. “As we announced at NI Connect, this
collaboration with Seagate is a key component of how NI will accelerate the
product life cycle for ADAS components and autonomous vehicles. Our open,
partner-driven approach connects experts across an entire workflow to
improve quality, speed and outcomes on the path to Vision Zero.”

Seagate’s Lyve Mobile accelerates access to the data collected by autonomous
vehicles for analysis and algorithm optimization. Lyve Mobile Array can be
directly mounted to the vehicle’s trunk and can store all the data in real
time. After the data logging ride has been completed, it can be transported
to the closest edge data center and can directly transfer the data for
immediate use.

“The combined offering from NI and Seagate provides a scalable model that
significantly reduces the total cost of ownership of ADAS and automated
driving data storage and transfer solutions,” said Melyssa Banda, Seagate
vice president for Lyve Mobile Solutions.

The collaboration between NI and Seagate is positioned to grow beyond this
initial offering. Together, they plan to build a comprehensive portfolio for
data storage and transfer from the vehicle to the cloud, allowing OEMs to
share data more efficiently and reduce development time and cost. As NI’s
preferred partner for in-vehicle storage, Seagate intends to provide
world-class mass data storage solutions to complement and enhance NI’s
offerings.
