dSpace has introduced its new Advanced Driver Assistance System Interface Specification (ADASIS) v3 horizon reconstructor blockset. The blockset is based on the EB robinos reconstructor from Elektrobit.

The new blockset is designed to provide the electronic horizon in HD quality via the standardized ADASIS v3 protocol, making exact route and position data available to applications in Simulink. The new blockset is designed to allow alternative vehicle positions to be determined to the centimeter, including their probabilities of occurrence. Detailed environment data (e.g., for intersections with individual lanes) enable precise maneuver calculations. According to the company, developers also benefit from the new map management because it lets them manage large volumes of data in ADASIS v3. The horizon reconstructor is designed to make only required data available while automatically deleting superfluous data.

Since the blockset is based on the EB robinos reconstructor for ADASIS v3 by Elektrobit, developers do not have to implement their own horizon reconstructor or know the details of the ADASIS protocol. “Users can fully concentrate on application development and quickly experience the results in the vehicle. Using the EB robinos reconstructor ensures a smooth development from prototyping and transfer to the production-intent ECU,” said Dr. Michael Reichel, Head of Product Management Automated Driving at Elektrobit. 

The clear structure of the Horizon Reconstructor Blockset reportedly enables a quick and easy connection to the application in the vehicle. For example, adding only two blocks to the existing Simulink model makes it possible to access profiles of a vehicle trajectory.

“The new blockset is another building block in our end-to-end tool chain for autonomous driving. It supports the development of map-based ADAS applications and functions for autonomous driving on dSpace prototyping systems and our PC-based simulation platform VEOS,” explained Gregor Hordys, Product Engineer for Advanced Application and Technologies at dSpace.
