The ADAC kit tmakes it possible for developers to speed up and simplify the development of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) capabilities with up to six cameras.
According to Nick DiFiore, director of Xilinx's automotive segment, the enhanced automotive driver assistance kit is a complete out-of-the-box development platform that includes application specific software and complete reference designs that can be used for rapid test vehicle installation and demonstration.
The customizable reference designs come with evaluation IP cores and a full design framework for camera-based ADAS that allows easy integration of additional customer developed software or intellectual property (IP) based functions.
He said the logiADAK platform is based on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC, capable of delivering real-time performance capabilities while meeting stringent automotive temperature and quality needs by exceeding AEC-Q100 qualification requirements.
The kit makes possible the design of ADAC systems with 360 degree surround view with 3D and bird's eye viewing modes using up to six cameras, enabling the rapid development of larger commercial and special-purpose vehicles
It also allows incorporation of a rear-view camera with a wide array of customizable viewing modes, including pedestrian detection indicators as well as a forward camera collision avoidance for pedestrian and vehicle detection.
The kit can also be used to design ADAC systems with lane departure warning and blind spot detection using optical flow.
“The ability to support up to six one-megapixel cameras is critical for larger sized vehicles,” said DiFiore, “or where it is desirable to combine surround view with forward camera collision avoidance or assist features into a single integrated solution.”
