Paderborn, February 23, 2016: In a press conference held today at embedded world 2016, dSPACE and Intempora have announced an exclusive cooperation that aims at providing a superior tool chain for developing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and highly automated driving functions.
dSPACE and Intempora sign a strategic partnership
RTMaps in the dSPACE toolchain (update September 2016)
Our partnership with dSPACE is now in place since February 2016. We have been working hard to integrate RTMaps in the dSPACE toolchain, developing interfaces with various dSPACE products (MicroAutoBox, RTI blocksets, ControlDeskNG, VEOS…) and preparing future products as well. We have now built an end-to-end toolchain for rapid development and testing of ADAS and A.D. applications, from ADAS sensors acquisition down to command-control, including advanced HMIs, communication systems, and various HIL testing capabilities.
In line with this agreement, and except in France, dSPACE GmbH will globally and exclusively distribute RTMaps (Real-Time Multisensor applications).
Intempora develops the RTMaps middleware, a rapid and powerful execution environment for robotics, ADAS and autonomous vehicles since 2002.
A complete portfolio of tools for development and validation
“RTMaps is a perfect fit for the comprehensive dSPACE tool chain, which today can be seen as a de facto standard for ECU software development and testing in the automotive domain,” says Nicolas du Lac, CEO at Intempora.
“Hence, we are proud to team up with dSPACE GmbH as a market leader, whose worldwide recognition and distribution capabilities will foster the future development of our highly innovative product RTMaps in the field of ADAS and Automated Driving”
“This cooperation is an essential milestone in our strategy to provide a complete tool chain for ADAS and autonomous driving”, says André Rolfsmeier, Lead Product Manager for Advanced Applications and Technologies at dSPACE.
“Due to its superior performance on multicore x86 and ARM platforms and its ease of use, RTMaps ideally extends our product portfolio. And there is more to come. In a couple of months dSPACE will launch a new in-vehicle hardware development system for ADAS which will perfectly match RTMaps.”
A seamless integration of RTMaps into the dSPACE tool
From now on, dSPACE will integrate RTMaps tightly into its comprehensive tool chain. For this, the company provides an interface blockset designed specifically for bidirectional, low-latency communication between RTMaps and dSPACE tools like real-time systems or the PC-based simulation platform VEOS®. The experiment and visualization software dSPACE ControlDesk® Next Generation can also be connected to RTMaps. With this connection, users can monitor and parametrize components which are implemented and processed in RTMaps.
