Typically, functions for ADAS and automated driving, such as adaptive cruise control (ACC), autonomous emergency braking (AEB), lane keeping assist (LKA), or the intersection assistant, consist of different processing stages.
RTMaps, a prototyping tool for multisensor applications, is typically used on the MicroAutoBox Embedded PC hardware platform for developing perception and sensor fusion algorithms in C++, OpenCV, or Python under Linux or MS Windows. The calculation result is then transmitted to the application and control functions on the dSPACE MicroAutoBox II. The MicroAutoBox II performs real-time processing, ensures functional safety, integrates Simulink® and AUTOSAR code, and serves as the interface to the vehicle network, so it can interact with the braking and steering ECUs, for example. The data exchange between RTMaps and the Simulink model on the MicroAutoBox II is established via the RTMaps Interface Blockset.
