Automotive ADAS Camera System Configuration Using Multi-Core Microcontroller 2015-01-0023
It has become an important trend to implement safety-related requirements in the road vehicles. Recent studies have shown that accidents, which occurred when drivers are not focused due to fatigue or distractions, can be predicted in advance when using safety features. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are used to prevent this kind of situation. Currently, many major tiers are using a DSP chip for ADAS applications.
This paper suggests the migration from a DSP configuration to a Microcontroller configuration for ADAS application, for example, using a 32bit Multi-core Microcontroller.
In this paper, the following topics will be discussed. Firstly, this paper proposes and describes the system block diagram for ADAS configuration followed by the requirements of the ADAS system. Secondly, the paper discusses the current solutions using a DSP. Thirdly, the paper presents a system that is migrated to a Multi-core microcontroller. Lastly, the paper shows that the proposed system can meet the current requirements.
This paper was progressed in order to configure the Hyundai MOBIS Integrated Front CAMERA Module project. The Infineon 32bit microcontroller AURIX (TC297TF-128F300S AA EES), Aptina camera (MT9V024) were used for this paper.
