The camera is one of the key elements in current L2 advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) solutions and L3 and L4 autonomous driving applications of the future. TIER IV has developed automotive HDR camera solutions with software-defined design expertise to achieve optimal performance to provide dependable perception results in a wide variety of difficult sensing environments. * system dependent
ADLINK's RQX-58G is used in TIER IV's capture system as a perception ECU connecting to up to eight cameras to provide essential processed data with time synchronization function for localization and mapping functions. The RQX-58G supports sensor fusion technology for perception tasks including traffic lights and dynamic objects to achieve accurate synchronization of image capture between multiple cameras and other sensors.
Real-Time Sensor Fusion
With the integration of TIER IV's C1/C2 cameras and ADLINK's RQX-58G AI-based Perception ECU, cameras can be trigged and controlled separately and the image data from multiple cameras can be perfectly synchronized with LiDAR data to achieve sensor fusion. Not only can the solution be used for image recognition in perception tasks, but it can also compress and transmit image data for remote monitoring.
