RT-RK Automotive R-Car Solutions

RT-RK presents a demo of 3 ADAS algorithms (CMRS, DMS, BV) running on automotive grade target board RazorMotion by TTTech.

Algorithms demonstrated include:
CMRS - Camera Mirror Replacement System by DENSO Europe, enabling tracking of several vehicles and prediction of time-to-collision. The algorithm was optimized to run on 25 fps providing near real-time performance.

DMS - Driver Monitoring System by FotoNation, enabling tracking of driver face features and eyes, providing a direct way to prevent distractions and drowsiness, leading to a safer driving and fewer accidents. The algorithm was optimized to run on 30 fps providing near real-time performance.

Bird view algorithm by RTRK combines inputs from 4 cameras/video streams and creates an overview of the vehicle allowing the driver to monitor the surroundings and avoid collisions with nearby objects or persons. The algorithm was optimized to run on 30 fps providing near real-time performance.
All algorithms were optimized by use of powerful A57 ARM cores and Imagination PowerVR GX6650 GPU cores.
Algorithms were implemented by the use of OpenCL and OpenGL libraries.
