Multi-sensor application development tool for driver assistance systems

February 11, 2015 // By Julien Happich
In launching vADASdeveloper, Vector is introducing a tool for developing multi-sensor applications for developers of driver assistance systems and ECUs for automated driving.

Designed as a comprehensive solution for data fusion and environment perception, vADASdeveloper provides the infrastructure needed to develop algorithms for driver assistance systems. It lets users develop, debug and test multi-sensor applications. In the development of algorithms, the tool is able to acquire, visualise and replay the data of all commonly used ADAS sensor types – from cameras to laser scanners – time synchronous to the bus messages.

The application's data flow is configured graphically. Visual Studio integration lets users implement, debug and test the application in one tool. The range of implementable applications extends from object recognition by image processing of sensor data to sensor data fusion, e.g. for multiple object tracking, as well as ADAS functionality that is based on environment perception. The tool is also well suited to the tasks of testing and evaluating prototype systems.

The modular “BASELABS Create” algorithm library, which can be seamlessly integrated, gives developers additional useful features for configuring and implementing signal processing algorithms in data fusion. Other modules from C/C++ or MATLAB/Simulink can be embedded. BASELABS Create can be procured directly from BASELABS GmbH .
