As advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) evolve from discrete single function systems, such as blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning to integrated active safety systems and automated driving technologies, a new set of software challenges has emerged. The need for high performance computing is intersecting with the need for functional safety, changing the very nature of the hardware and software in these next generation systems. The QNX ® Platform for ADAS has been designed to addresses these challenges by providing a flexible, safe and stable software environment that leverages the performance advances in silicon while maintaining ISO 26262 functional safety certification.
The QNX Platform for ADAS allows automakers to build the next generation of ADAS systems and pave the way for automated driving in the years to come.
The QNX Platform for ADAS has been built as a foundation to support a variety of ADAS and active safety applications. For example, by combining the multi-camera framework with support for accelerated vision processing and 3D OpenGL ES graphics rendering, a surround view system can be realized. Alternately, a single camera forward facing safety system can be constructed by combining the camera input framework with object detection and recognition algorithms from QNX ecosystem partners.
