The Baselabs Connect development software for multi-sensor ADAS applications, is now marketed by Vector under its new name vADASdeveloper. In the development of algorithms the tool is able to acquire, visualize and replay the data of all commonly used ADAS sensor types – from cameras to laser scanners – time synchronous to the bus messages. The application’s data flow is configured graphically with a clearly arranged layout. Visual Studio integration lets users implement, debug and test the application in one tool.
The modular Baselabs Create algorithm library, which can be seamlessly integrated, gives developers additional useful features for configuring and implementing signal processing algorithms in data fusion. Other modules from C/C++ or MATLAB/Simulink can be embedded easily.
By adopting the tool from Baselabs into its own tool chain, Vector is now supporting the entire development process for ADAS systems. While the primary focus of vADASdeveloper is on system development, the CANape Driver Asistance option is used for the necessary validation of object recognition algorithms in the vehicle. While the algorithm is running in the ECU, CANape can be used to calibrate and validate the ECU. The VX1000 measurement and calibration hardware enables quick access to (sensor) data from the ECU at rates of up to 30 Mbyte/s.
