Developing Functions for Highly Automated Driving with an Electronic Horizon in HD Quality – Faster and with Less Effort

dSPACE introduces new ADASIS v3 Horizon Reconstructor Blockset

  • Easy access to highly precise map data in Simulink
  • Horizon reconstructor from Elektrobit as basis for smooth prototyping and series production
  • Efficient management of map data

The new ADASIS v3 Horizon Reconstructor Blockset provides the electronic horizon in HD quality via the standardized ADASIS v3 protocol, making exact route and position data available to applications in Simulink.

Wixom, Michigan, April 10, 2019: With the new ADASIS v3 Horizon Reconstructor Blockset, dSPACE expands its range of solutions for the fast and easy development of functions for automated and autonomous driving. The blockset is based on the EB robinos reconstructor from Elektrobit, which is suitable for series production. 

The new blockset provides the electronic horizon in HD quality via the standardized ADASIS v3 protocol, making exact route and position data available to applications in Simulink. In contrast to conventional vehicles, highly automated and autonomous vehicles must be able to recognize where they are with a precision of only a few centimeters to be able to move safely through traffic. With the new blockset, alternative vehicle positions can now be determined to the centimeter including their probabilities of occurrence. Detailed environment data, e.g., for intersections with individual lanes, enable precise maneuver calculations. Developers also benefit from the new map management, which lets them manage large volumes of data in ADASIS v3. The horizon reconstructor makes only required data available and automatically deletes superfluous data.

Since the blockset is based on the EB robinos reconstructor for ADASIS v3 by Elektrobit, developers do not have to implement their own horizon reconstructor or know the details of the ADASIS protocol. “Users can fully concentrate on application development and quickly experience the results in the vehicle. Using the EB robinos Reconstructor ensures a smooth development from prototyping and transfer to the production-intent ECU,” says Dr. Michael Reichel, Head of Product Management Automated Driving at Elektrobit. 

The clear structure of the Horizon Reconstructor Blockset enables a quick and easy connection to the application in the vehicle. For example, adding only two blocks to the existing Simulink model makes it possible to access profiles of a vehicle trajectory.

“The new blockset is another building block in our end-to-end tool chain for autonomous driving. It supports the development of map-based ADAS applications and functions for autonomous driving on dSPACE prototyping systems and our PC-based simulation platform VEOS”, explains Gregor Hordys, Product Engineer for Advanced Application and Technologies at dSPACE.
