Software platform announced for next-gen ADAS system
Green Hills Software has announced its industry-leading platform for ADAS, including the INTEGRITY RTOS and 64-bit MULTI development tools, for the Freescale S32V200 automotive vision processor featuring quad ARM Cortex-A53 cores with dedicated vision processors cores.
For the first time, carmakers and their tier-1 suppliers can develop advanced vision and fusion applications on powerful 64-bit cores and confidently deploy safe and secure ADAS features, such as pedestrian detection, traffic sign recognition and surround view object avoidance with the world’s most trusted automotive software execution environment.
In their competitive quest for driver convenience and decreased roadway fatalities, carmakers today are incorporating automotive ADAS systems based on limited situational awareness. The next step is to add a co-pilot function for shared control with the driver during critical situations. These sophisticated and computation-intensive next-gen ADAS systems must simultaneously harness powerful and complex processors, such as the Freescale S32V while controlling millions of lines of code that fuse camera, radar, ultrasound and radio signals to then understand and predict pedestrian movement, other cars, traffic lanes and speed limit signs, requiring guaranteed levels of the highest functional safety and cyber security.
“The combination of Freescale’s S32V processor running the Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS is a suitable solution for vision applications with multiple cameras and/or sensors,” said Davide Santo, Global ADAS Microcontroller Product Line Manager, Freescale. “The collaboration between Freescale and Green Hills on the S32V over the past 2 years has produced a trusted execution platform for customers to confidently take their advanced driver systems beyond today’s ‘assist’ capabilities into the exciting ‘co-pilot’ era.”
The Green Hills Software Platform for ADAS for S32V200 is available to qualified customers today with scheduled support plans continuing through 2015.
