Kalman Filter acceleration IP core for ADAS

EnSilica offers the Kalman Filter acceleration IP core for use in situational awareness radar sensors for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), such as electronic stability-control systems, pre-crash impact mitigation, blind-spot detection, lane-departure detection and self-parking. Kalman filtering is used in sensor-based ADAS as part of the radar tracker to smooth out position and velocity measurements obtained from the radar sensors and front-end digital signal processor (DSP) unit. According to EnSilica, the compact, low gate-count architecture of the device enables the computationally intensive matrix operations involved in Kalman filtering to be cost-effectively off-loaded from the CPU.
