Unlike ECUs, ADAS sensors do not provide signals, but detailed information about the vehicle's surroundings. The surroundings are acquired from such sources as video and radar sensors. The data from a sensor is analyzed, surrounding objects are identified, and information (position, speed, etc.) is described as data objects. The sensor sends these data objects, in the form of object lists, to data fusion controllers, for example.
To verify functionality, CANape acquires the object lists and the unprocessed raw data from the sensors. In the case of video sensors, the raw data is uncompressed image data, and in the case of radar sensors it is the results of radar reflections.
CANape has open interfaces for integrating the different sensors and logging their data.
For verification purposes, you can visualize the data objects clearly in special ADAS windows. These windows also display other information such as position data and video from reference cameras. This makes it easy for you to quickly recognize where the objects were detected in the surroundings.
