This page answers typical questions about BASELABS Create Embedded.
BASELABS Create Embedded is a software library for the development of data fusion systems for automated driving functions on embedded platforms. It provides data fusion algorithms that combine data from radar, camera and lidar sensors. The resulting object fusion provides a unified object list of the vehicle's environment and serves as an input to path planning and decision making algorithms.
ADDRESSED USE CASES AND DRIVING FUNCTIONS
BASELABS Create Embedded provides a consistent development workflow - from pre-development and prototyping to series production. Utilizing the tool makes the implementation of data fusion systems for embedded platforms faster and much more efficient. The development tool contains data fusion algorithms that combine data from radar, camera and lidar sensors. The resulting C source code can be used along the entire development chain. Thus, the development tool drastically reduces the development effort at every stage on the way to series production. BASELABS Create Embedded allows for safety compliant data fusion development, including documentation and testing for safety use cases.
BASELABS Create Embedded supports a wide range of sensor technologies and object/track interfaces from various vendors, e.g. Continental ARS, Aptiv ESR, Bosch MRR, Mobileye EyeQ, Valeo Scala and Ibeo HAD.
Custom or extended sensors can be implemented and integrated using the software development kit (SDK).
To process low level data such as lidar point clouds or high-resolution radar images, the Dynamic Grid provides an alternative approach.
For details on the supported sensor interfaces, see BASELABS Create Embedded FAQ.
Data fusion designer and generator
With the data fusion designer, the radar, camera and lidar sensors of the vehicle setup are configured, customized and parameterized. A specific data fusion system for object fusion is generated from this configuration.
Data fusion reference architecture
The integrated reference architecture for object fusion algorithms allows to build data fusion applications ranging from two sensor systems to large 360° setups with many sensors. The architecture can be customized and extended.
Data fusion library for embedded systems
The integrated data fusion library contains algorithms to build custom object fusion systems, e.g.
The C source code of the library is fully accessible
and ready for embedded platforms:
For more details on the library, see BASELABS Create Embedded FAQ.
Middleware compatibility and integration
BASELABS Create Embedded is compatible to all middleware systems and provides a seamless integration of the generated data fusion algorithm to many platforms and runtime environments:
For details on how the data fusion integrates into middleware systems, see BASELABS Create Embedded FAQ.
BASELABS Create Embedded enables the safety-compliant development of data fusion algorithms. The contained embedded software library is developed according to ASPICE and ISO 26262. By that, the software can be directly used in series development and drastically reduces the development effort.
