NXP Connects 2019

June 12-13, 2019, Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, Santa Clara, California, USA

dSPACE to Exhibit Sensor Fusion Solutions

dSPACE will showcase its RTMaps sensor fusion solutions with the NXP Bluebox. RTMaps, which stands for “Real-Time Multisensor Applications,” is a modular and component-based development enviroment for ADAS and highly automated driving applications. With this solution, software engineers can capture, record, playback, develop, test, validate and deploy applications. RTMaps Embedded is available for NXP BlueBox. The development environment was developed by Intempora and is distributed by dSPACE.

Integration in the dSPACE Tool Chain

RTMaps is tightly integrated in the dSPACE tool chain. For this, dSPACE provides an interface blockset designed specifically for dSPACE’s PC-based simulation platform VEOS and dSPACE real-time systems to exchange data with low latencies and synchronize clocks with RTMaps. In addition, dSPACE ControlDesk® can be connected to RTMaps via the ASAM XIL API, which lets users monitor and parameterize components that are implemented and processed in RTMaps.

dSPACE Presentation: Realistic Sensor Simulation for Autonomous Driving Validation

Abstract: A detailed and comprehensive simulation of the real world is the challenge for successful validation of Autonomous Driving Systems. In addition to the simulation models of the automated vehicle and traffic participants, a wide range of sensor models (RADAR, LIDAR, camera) are needed to accurately perceive the vehicle’s surroundings. These sensor models extend from technology-independent variants, which generate object lists directly from information provided by the environment model, to phenomenological or physical models that reproduce the sensor behavior and raw data streams from the interaction with the simulated environment. Such physical sensor models, computationally intensive, are typically calculated on high-performance GPU(s) and the raw sensor data can be fed to either the connected real sensor ECUs for real-time HIL testing or the Sensor ECU software directly for SIL Testing.

About NXP® Connects

NXP Connects represents the energy, depth and scope of a large-scale conference designed in a concentrated format to offer a more personalized experience. Combining a wide range of technical sessions, live-demonstrations, panel discussions and networking opportunities at a regional level, attendees can focus their time on embedded solutions that specifically address their current and future designs.

This 2-day event will feature 100+ hours of technical training sessions from NXP and partners. Demonstrations will be showcased in the Technology Expo, along with a Meet and Greet with executives and lead engineers from NXP and partners.
