Platform to leverage Ambarella’s high-performance, low-power CVflow®
computer vision architecture and Baolong’s automotive visual perception
algorithms

SHANGHAI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ADAS–Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA), a leading developer of high-resolution
video processing and computer vision semiconductors, and Shanghai
Baolong Automotive Technology Co., Ltd., a leading supplier of
intelligent automotive sensors, today announced a joint project to
develop a high-performance driver monitoring system (DMS) platform with
advanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities for assessing driver
fatigue. The DMS platform will be based on Ambarella’s CV22AQ CVflow®
computer vision chip and Baolong’s visual perception software.

“Our partnership with Ambarella to develop an advanced AI-based DMS
solution will help enable the automotive industry’s shift toward
including driver monitoring in production vehicles,” said Li Wei,
director of Baolong’s electronics unit. “Ambarella’s CV22AQ CVflow
computer vision processor is ideal for our visual perception algorithms:
it provides the high performance and low-power consumption required for
compact DMS camera designs.”

“We are pleased to be collaborating with Baolong to enable
next-generation automotive cameras for improved driver safety,” said
Ambarella CEO Fermi Wang. “With this joint platform, our customers gain
a high-resolution, high-accuracy DMS solution with advanced AI features.”

Baolong’s DMS software captures the driver’s facial information,
including characteristics of the eyes, head, and mouth from an image
sensor. Ambarella’s computer vision SoC then performs image processing
and AI-based analysis to determine the driver’s level of fatigue in real
time.

Ambarella’s CV22AQ chip offers support for both global shutter and
rolling shutter CMOS sensors, a requirement for applications deployed
inside a vehicle’s cabin. The CV22AQ includes a powerful ISP, native
support for RGB-IR color filter arrays, and advanced high dynamic range
(HDR) processing, which results in exceptional image quality in
low-light and high-contrast environments. CV22AQ’s CVflow architecture
delivers the computational power required for multi-camera DMS
solutions, while running multiple AI algorithms on each video stream.
CV22AQ includes a suite of advanced security features to protect against
hacking, including secure boot, TrustZone™, and I/O virtualization.

The common stock issued in exchange for the PURA spinoff is intended to be issued to PURA shareholders in a dividend distribution.

NCM Biotech, a subsidiary of Kali-Extracts (OTC Pink: KALY) will also be acquired and merged with PURA’s cannabis spinoff.

The management team purchasing control of the target public company is expected to confirm the planned acquisitions of PURA’s cannabis cultivation company and KALY’s NCM Biotech in the announcement now scheduled for Tuesday, July 14, 2020.

PURA’s cannabis cultivation operation is thriving. The operation has recently purchased and relocated to a new property from its former leased property.

PURA’s cannabis cultivation spinoff has initiated a number of joint research applications with Texas universities.

NCM Biotech is focused on medical research and the development of treatments derived from its patented cannabis extraction process. See a recent research report on CBD extracts derived from NCM Biotech’s patented extraction process: Journal of Cannabis Research.
