In the last few years, the "Robocar" community of enthusiasts that build autonomous scaled vehicles (mostly 1:10) has grown significantly and the level of functionality that is achieved is amazing. Many of these projects use ROS/Python and start with available open source platforms. At itemis, we decided to build our vehicle based on other technologies that we see in production at our customers, such as C++ and Eclipse hosted communication frameworks. We will explain how we leverage the Eclipse projects both for building and runninge a vehicle that uses AI and classical control systems to navigate a track, detect traffic lights and follow a valet's orders.
On the runtime side, we will introduce how our system communicates based on
On the development side, we talk about
- Papyrus / Capella
And of course we are going to mention the relevant Working Groups such as
and round off the talk with a mentioning of Eclipse Activities related to autonomous driving but not directly used in our vehicle.
The talk is intended for a broad audience with interest in cyber physical systems, that need to learn about autonomous driving at Eclipse, either professionally or as enthusiasts.
