Behind the Test Challenges of Smart Video Cameras and Sensors for Autonomous Vehicles

Abstract:AI powered smart automotive video cameras and sensors increasingly gain importance by enabling self-driving vehicles to better perceive their surroundings, will challenge test engineers at the component and system level.   Modern cameras and sensors generate large amounts of raw data that require new and innovative approach to multi-channel capturing, timestamping, annotating and recording using standard formats to enable access to third-party's HIL/SIL platforms. Using a configurable open hardware platform approach enables flexibility and future proofing of systems for test engineers to adjust to changing system requirements.

Challenges: large data throughput from up to 12 Megapixel, in addition to Lidars, Radars and vehicle networks, that need to be synchronized with a universal timestamp for system validation and Hardware in the Loop testing.
