Kithara and PLC2 Design Cooperate for ADAS Development
Kithara Software GmbH in cooperation with PLC2 Design GmbH have successfully implemented the integration of the frame grabber card PGC-1000 into the real-time operating system Kithara RealTime Suite. This allows for image data loggers in a real-time context to be significantly accelerated.
The fields of application lie foremost in demanding developments for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving, where, in addition to the CPU-intensive image acquisition, numerous other technologies within the real-time environment all need to mesh together. Utilization of the card fits seamlessly into the functional spectrum of Kithara RealTime Suite for capturing, processing as well as storaging of image and video data. The acceleration card is especially suited for implementation into existing data logging systems for ADAS development in order to offload important CPU ressources and consequently also allowing for more stable real-time performance.
As specialists in the field of automotive development, both companies benefit especially from each other’s know-how and the close collaboration. For cutting-edge areas of application in particular, this optimization between hardware and software as well as the resulting synergies are especially advantageous.
