Software for 360 view of complex scalable sensor fusion data in autonomous driving

It's not just your radar, lidar and cameras, you can even have more sensors to ensure high level of safety in autonomous driving which are basically classified into level 1 to level 5. The 360 representation of sensor fusion data requires powerful software. To make this simple and scalable, BASELABS Create offers a software framework which accepts sensor fusion data from multiple types of sensors and graphically configure making it effeciently resourcefull for autonomous vehicles technology with less burden of complex programming. BASELABS Create is designed to reduce the software programming workload for data fusion developer. It asks for information such as sensor model, positioning, para meters, and BASELABS Create handles the calculation aspects of the system, the sensor data fusion, the handover between sensors, and all probabilistic calculations including synchronisation of the sensors. The system code is accessible for the data fusion experts at any time throughout the process, to enable them to carry out programmatic customizations.

BASELABS Create is compatible with popular middleware-software products such as Autosar, vADASdeveloper, RTMaps, ADTF, PolySync, Simulink, and ROS and prototyping-hardware platforms such as Nvidia DRIVE PX 2, dspace MicroAutobox, Renesas R-Car H3, TTTech HADP and others and complements them with the data fusion component. The software processes various data inputs (objects, raw data, point clouds) from all typical automotive sensors (radar, camera, lidar, ultrasound) into a unified environment model. The framework supports both Windows and Linux operating systems.

"Many of our clients start their development with simple two-sensor-systems. For more demanding use cases, such as the highway pilot, the number of necessary sensors is growing rapidly. BASELABS Create massively supports the developer in coping with such challenges, like the combination of sensors with different viewing angles and overlapping fields of view", explains Eric Richter, CTO Development Software at BASELABS. BASELABS Create has a long track record in system development at OEMs and Tier 1.
