Goila, A., Desai, A., Dang, F., Dong, J. et al., "ADAS Feature Concepts Development Framework via a Low Cost RC Car," SAE Technical Paper 2017-01-0116, 2017, doi:10.4271/2017-01-0116.
ADAS features development involves multidisciplinary technical fields, as well as extensive variety of different sensors and actuators, therefore the early design process requires much more resources and time to collaborate and implement. This paper will demonstrate an alternative way of developing prototype ADAS concept features by using remote control car with low cost hobby type of controllers, such as Arduino Due and Raspberry Pi. Camera and a one-beam type Lidar are implemented together with Raspberry Pi. OpenCV free open source software is also used for developing lane detection and object recognition. In this paper, we demonstrate that low cost frame work can be used for the high level concept algorithm architecture, development, and potential operation, as well as high level base testing of various features and functionalities. The developed RC vehicle can be used as a prototype of the early design phase as well as a functional safety testing bench. The paper will also discuss the feature development at the concept phase, as well as the potential implementation of concepts into the conventional vehicle applications.This paper proposes a low cost, unique and practical control framework for quick development of ADAS related concepts. The proposed frame work could also be used for testing and validation of various prototype features.
