This product is featured in EDN's Hot 100 products of 2016. See all 100 here.
Xylon, a provider of intellectual property (IP) cores, design services, and solutions for Xilinx FPGA and SoC devices, has introduced a new version of its Xilinx Zynq-7000-based logiADAK 3.2 development kit for vision-based Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) applications. The kit boasts a broad set of new and enhanced capabilities which enables automakers and Tier-1 automotive electronics suppliers to start next-generation ADAS system development.

The enhanced automotive driver assistance kit includes a toolset for driver's drowsiness detection based on facial movements monitored through a camera placed in a vehicle cabin. Implemented with Xylon's logiDROWSINE Driver Drowsiness Detector IP core, and based on the face tracking and analysis technology from technology partner Visage Technologies AB, the drowsiness detector continuously tracks eyes, gaze, eyebrows, lips, and head movements, and recognizes various behavioral features indicating the drowsiness.

The new logiADAK kit now comes with expanded and improved forward camera collision avoidance ADAS based on detection and recognition of vehicles, pedestrians and bikes. Multi-object detections is supported by the logiHOG Object Detector IP core for advanced HOG/SVM object classification, and the logiVDET Vehicle Detector IP core for vehicle detections. Developed by technology partner eVS embedded Vision Systems Srl, and tightly integrated with the logiADAK platform through close cooperation with Xylon, the collision avoidance toolset also includes advanced PC software tools for easy configuration, training and verification of multi-object detectors. The logiSTK Software Training Kit and the logiVCS Visual Configuration System software tools enable even non-experts for computer vision to change the ADAS applications supplied with the kit, and to adapt them to specific requirements, i.e. train the system for traffic signs recognition.

The current logiADAK kit includes around ten different ADAS applications, ranging from design frameworks to complete production-ready solutions that help our customers to create highly differentiated driver assistance applications. According to Xylon founder and CEO Davor Kovačec, the company is working on several key technologies to enable semi-autonomous and autonomous driving. This IP will be included in the upcoming kit releases, Kovačec said.

The logiADAK kit comes with a set of user customizable demo applications, advanced software for quick setup, documentation, and Xylon technical support. The provided hardware platform includes five 1Mpixel cameras and is appropriate for test-vehicle installations and rapid deployment of proof-of-concept or demonstration projects.
