Automotive Industry

The research department of an established German car-maker is developing highly complex image-processing algorithms for new driver-assistance systems. One example is the highly resolved and exact calculation of the 3D structure in front of the vehicle from the video signals of two cameras. Thanks to this information, future vehicles will be able to assess situations in their immediate proximity and determine the position of vehicles, obstacles and pedestrians, and predict where they will be in the immediate future. SCS experts were tasked with the evaluation of the suitability of these highly complex algorithms for implementation in an automotive-compliant FPGA. The algorithm has now been implemented on the Spartan6 accelerator box developed by SCS and performs calculations 75 times quicker than a commercially available PC. As a third-party supplier to Analog Devices, Texas Instruments and Xilinx, SCS was able to establish itself as a specialist in DSP and FPGA solutions.

  • Roboception Teaches Robots how to See Automotive IndustryAround 3 years after the first ideas, we were able to realize the rc_visard, a 3D-stereo camera for robots, on behalf of the project partners KUKA and Roboception within just 9 months. For this project SCS could rely on their extensive expertise in the electrical development and camera systems. This camera with the on board ...
  • Tech-Event of 05.04.2017 „Deep Learning and Autonomous Driving“ Dr. Uwe Franke from Daimler introduced together with Felix Eberli the potential of deep learning for autonomous driving during this year’s first tech event. The presentation covered the impressive technical developments, driven by Convolutional Neural Networks and increased computation power. These methods are even nowadays superior to the human driver in particular situations such as ...
  • SCS @ Embedded World 2014 Automotive IndustryWir demonstrieren ein Entwicklungssystem für Stereo-Kamera-Fahrerassistenzsysteme auf der Basis des Zynq All Programmable SoC. Optimiert für die Entwicklung von Bildanalysealgorithmen demonstriert dieses System sowohl eine Bildentzerrung als auch die Berechnung des SGM Stereo um die Lage und den Abstand von Objekten abzubilden. Um mehr zu erfahren, besuchen Sie uns an der Embedded World in Nürnberg. Wir sind ...
  • SCS Surround Measurement Technology Automotive IndustryModern cars are using more and more cameras in order to provide a better and more comprehensive display of their surroundings. Camera manufacturers need reliable measurement technology to design such systems. The SCS measurement technology box makes it possible to record and play back up to six LVDS cameras. The ‘Recorder System’ developed by SCS ...
