dSPACE (Wixom, MI) has added the ADASIS v2 Horizon Reconstructor Blockset (ADASIS v2 HR Blockset) to its range of products for developing advanced driver assistance systems. The Simulink blockset provides access to data on the road ahead. Such data, for example, comes from a navigation system or a special ECU, and is transmitted via the ADASIS v2 protocol defined by the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Interface Specifications (ADASIS) forum.
Used in combination with a dSPACE MicroAutoBox or AutoBox rapid prototyping system, the ADASIS v2 HR Blockset allows map-based driver assistance systems to be developed in a vehicle. This lets function developers implement and experience their ideas directly in the vehicle, and reduce development iteration cycles. In addition to supporting the CAN bus, the ADASIS v2 HR Blockset also supports Ethernet as a transmission medium.
Predictive road data such as curve radii, gradients, and maximum speeds can be selected with a few mouse clicks and connected to the driver assistance functions in a Simulink model. The real-time code is generated at the press of a button and loaded to the rapid prototyping system.
