Use the Reference Image

Updated: May 06, 2022

The reference image can help you understand how to build an embedded system using the Sensor Framework or to experiment with sample applications.

This image is configured to run the ADAS example using pre-recorded sensor data. Here are the ways you can use the reference image: There may be limitations on the type of hardware you can connect to the VMware image. For information about the hardware that you can use, see Supported hardware configurations in the “About the Sensor Framework for QNX SDP” chapter of this guide.

Configuration files

The following reference image configuration files let the system know what cameras are connected:

Sensor configuration file
The default file is located at /system/etc/system/config/adas_capture.conf. It configures the Sensor Framework to make use of pre-recorded sensor data.
System Launch Configuration (SLM) file
The main SLM file is located at /proc/boot/slm.cfg.

Sample applications on the reference image

The reference image includes sample applications. The applications described in this guide are the ones that function on the reference image with predefined configurations. For more information about the applications and how to use them, see Run sample applications in this chapter.

Understanding the reference image

The reference image is configured to be an example you can refer to when you build your own image.
