The Eclipse foundation is hosting the OpenADx initiative, encouraging companies to collaborate on integrating different technologies and tools to accelerate the development of Autonomous Driving. This OpenADx initiative is initially being focussed around different testbeds.
We will show the OpenAdx simulation test bed which uses CARLA and AirSim which both utilise the 3D graphics Unreal engine. The project has been focused on introducing the Renesas R-Car hardware platform into this simulation environment. Enabling customers to test computer vision algorithms using the captured images from the 3D simulation tools.
In this presentation we discuss the work we are doing towards this Autonomous Driving “Simulation” testbed, specifically our focus on image handling and processing, and show how the adoption of ROS2 (Robotic Operating System) is allowing us to easily switch between different simulation components.
This talk will cover:-
- Demonstrator for Renesas R-Car integrated into the OpenADx Simulation Testbed.
- Ability to switch between different environment simulators (AirSim, CARLA).
- Ability to switch to use hardware, providing 'HW in the loop' verification and acceleration.
- Problems with the architecture and the optimisations to overcome these.
- Benchmarks for this demonstrator.
