Realization of an alternative sourcing strategy for sensor fusion through a software product
In the race to automated driving, automotive companies have a continuously increasing demand for development resources. BASELABS provides the automotive industry with an attractive procurement strategy for sensor fusion through a product. Automotive companies are enabled to adapt data fusion applications more quickly and efficiently to changing market and technology requirements - in-house or at the supplier. Thus, OEMs and Tier 1 are more flexible in their sourcing decisions. The BASELABS Create Embedded software has now been awarded with the Frost & Sullivan "2021 Enabling Technology Leadership Award". BASELABS makes the software available to the market via a licensing model. "It is impossible to cover the increasing software complexity and maintenance efforts with in-house resources only - regardless of size. That is why BASELABS offers sensor fusion software as a product. This cuts costs and resources and gives our customers the focus they need in the current race for automated driving," states Robin Schubert, CEO at BASELABS.
The award includes a detailed evaluation of best practice criteria and refers to both the product's market performance and technical benefits for software users. BASELABS was particularly named for its innovative strength and far-reaching market strategies, among other things. "BASELABS develops software for sensor fusion as a product, with the key strategy of being independent of sensor vendors and manufacturers. Sensor Fusion customers can therefore work more independently of sensor vendors," explained Ranjana Lakshmi, Senior Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan.
In addition to a reference architecture, the software includes reliable and powerful fusion algorithms that reliably combine data from radar, camera, and lidar sensors. Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) ECU developers use it to customize object fusion systems. The library's generated MISRA-C source code is fully accessible and optimized for execution on embedded platforms. The software allows sensor fusion systems to be quickly and efficiently configured and customized for different ADAS functions, sensor combinations, or design domains. Sensor fusion development and customization become time-saving and resource-efficient with the help of the software tool. Users can thus concentrate fully on the development and optimization of the overall system and the actual driving functions.
