State of the art smart cameras for automotive require a vision processing platform that not only captures images and video, but analyzes and processes the information in real-time. More and more, this analysis includes image and video analytics with features such as object identification for people, cars and bikes. The CogniVue APEX technology is a versatile programmable platform that is scalable and adaptable to different applications and feature sets simply with changes to the embedded software. ICP vision processing IP and software toolkits from CogniVue enable a wide range of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) safety applications. For example, for smart backup camera applications, CogniVue has developed a finished application for object detection and distance estimation: RearVue™. Similarly, CogniVue provides an application toolkit for forward facing ADAS applications for Lane Departure Warning Systems (LDWS) and Forward Collision Warning Systems (FCWS): FrontVue™.
CogniVue ICP technology is now supplied to the Automotive market through Freescale Semiconductor, see their SCP2200 family of Image Cognition Processors and ongoing plans for Image Cognition Processing in automotive safety at.
