Electronica: TI aims at self-driving vehicles



RT-RK Alpha development board uses three TDA2x SoC and supports development of ADAS applications such as ‘advanced warning’ systems, ‘active control’ systems and semi-autonomous driving, and can running up to six independent ADAS applications simultaneously, for 24W consumed.

“It supports 10 sensor inputs, parallel ADAS application execution and production ready ADAS algorithms, and is based on TI’s Vision SDK,” said TI. “The board was designed to support multiple applications on a single board, and with provisions to add differentiating algorithms.”

“For the first time, there is an option to connect all vehicle cameras on one ECU, said Tomislav Maruna, RT-RK head of automotive business. “Through workload balancing across three TDA2x, the Alpha board is a platform for level-3 and level- 4 autonomous vehicle systems.”

TDA2x is a member of TI’s scalable family of processors that share a common hardware and software architecture for ADAS, in applications such as camera-based front (mono/stereo), rear, surround view and night vision, plus multi-mode radar and sensor fusion systems.

The architecture integrates hardware accelerators such as image signal processors, embedded vision engines and DSPs.

“To meet performance and quality requirements, TI works with third parties that have solutions and expertise with the TDAx architecture,” said TI. “Using the ecosystem, customers can leverage algorithms already implemented on the architecture.”
