Freescale is working with Neusoft and Green Hills Software for a comprehensive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) ecosystem to speed up the process of developing ADAS vision systems such as pedestrian detection, traffic sign recognition, collision avoidance and other advanced ADAS capabilities.
They are developed turnkey solutions that address stringent protocols for automotive safety, and are compliant with the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. The collaboratively developed solution integrates CogniVue Corporation’s APEX Image Cognition Processing (ICP) IP available from Freescale with advanced, silicon-aware software from Neusoft’s ADAS vision applications, and the safety certified INTEGRITY operating system and MULTI tool chain from functional safety expert Green Hills Software. .
APEX processor technology enables extraction of application-specific information from a scene and interprets the image data to make decisions or take actions based on the extracted data. Freescale licensed CogniVue’s APEX-642 ICP core IP in 2012 and is the exclusive provider of this technology to the automotive market.
Simulator-based evaluation platforms are now availableday. Full solution availability is planned for 1H 2015.
