Typical applications of Baselabs Create Embedded are Automatic Emergency Braking Systems (AEB), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Warning Systems (FCW) and object fusion for piloted driving. For applications with functional safety aspects, the tool can be used for object fusion within the framework of safety architectures. The data fusion library supports all relevant vehicle sensors such as radar, camera and lidar. A graphical user interface allows data fusion systems to be configured in the shortest possible time. As a result, the user receives C source code suitable for series production.

The development tool contains data fusion algorithms that combine data from vehicle sensors and provide a uniform object list for the vehicle environment. According to the manufacturer, the tool enables the efficient and fast development of data fusion systems. The resulting C code is human-readable and comparable to handwritten code. It is adaptable and extensible and enables the developer to flexibly master the individual challenges of data fusion and to easily adapt the data fusion system to changing sensor setups and different sensor types from e.g. different manufacturers.

The C code is MISRA-C 2012 compliant, free of dependencies and runs on typical embedded hardware platforms in the target vehicle, such as Infineon Aurix 2G and Renesas RH850. The data fusion can be integrated into all common platforms and runtime environments, e.g. AUTOSAR Classic/Adaptive, Bare-Metal environments, ROS, ADTF, RTMaps, Matlab/Simulink, vADASdeveloper and any custom middleware.

With increasing automation and complexity in the future, the data fusion of different vehicle sensors such as cameras, radars and lidars will become more and more challenging. In addition, the software developed for use in production vehicles must meet the requirements for quality and functional safety and meet the hardware restrictions.

The development of applications for environmental perception without a suitable tool like Baselabs Create Embedded therefore requires a high programming and development effort. “Many of our customers start their development with simple two-sensor systems. For more demanding applications, such as highway pilots, the number of sensors required is growing rapidly. Baselabs Create Embedded provides massive support to the developer in overcoming such challenges as combining sensors with different angles of view and overlapping fields of view,” explains Dr. Norman Mattern, Head of Product Development at Baselabs. Baselabs Create Embedded is the direct successor to Baselabs Create, which has a long track record in system development for OEMs and Tier 1.
