BASELABS Announces New Data Fusion Development Tool for Series Production
CHEMNITZ, Germany, Feb. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

     BASELABS Create Embedded is the new tool for the development of embedded 
data fusion systems for automated driving functions. Typical use cases include 
Automated Emergency Braking (AEB), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward 
Collision Warning (FCW) and object fusion for piloted driving. Furthermore, the 
development tool can be used for object fusion for diverse paths in decomposed 
safety architectures. All relevant automotive sensors like radar, camera and 
lidar are supported. The tool provides a consistent workflow from a first 
prototype up to series production, which is unique in the industry. In the 
workflow, data fusion systems are configured with a graphical user interface in 
a very short time. The result is C source code that is suitable for series

    BASELABS Create Embedded includes data fusion algorithms that combine data 
from automotive sensors. The object fusion, implemented with the tool, provides 
a unified object list of the vehicle's environment.

    BASELABS Create Embedded makes the development of data fusion systems more 
efficient and faster. The resulting C-code is human readable and comparable to 
hand-written code. It is customizable and extensible and thus, enables the 
developer to handle the individual data fusion challenges more flexible. The 
data fusion system can easily be adapted to different sensor-set-ups and 
-types. The C-code is MISRA-C 2012 compliant, dependency-free and is running on 
typical embedded hardware platforms in the target vehicle, e.g. Infineon Aurix 
2G and Renesas RH850. The data fusion can be integrated into many platforms and 
runtime environments, e.g. AUTOSAR Classic/Adaptive, bare metal environments, 
ROS, ADTF, RTMaps, Matlab/Simulink, vADASdeveloper and any custom middleware. 
In the future, higher levels of automation and increased functional complexity 
can be expected for passenger vehicles. Therefore, the data fusion of different 
automotive sensors like cameras, radars and lidars becomes more and more 
challenging. Additionally, for the use in series vehicles, the developed 
software must meet the quality and functional safety requirements as well as 
the hardware constraints. As a result, the development of environment 
perception applications requires a high programming and development effort.

    "Many of our clients start their development with simple 
two-sensor-systems. For more demanding use cases, such as the highway pilot, 
the number of necessary sensors is growing rapidly. BASELABS Create Embedded 
massively supports the developer in coping with such challenges, like the 
combination of sensors with different viewing angles and overlapping fields of 
view," explains Dr. Norman Mattern, Director Product Development at BASELABS. 
BASELABS Create Embedded is a direct successor of BASELABS Create, which has a 
long track record in system development at OEMs and Tier 1.
