Description

Development and testing of cutting-edge vision-based Autonomous Driving and ADAS systems require lots of real tests in different driving situations encountered under different road conditions. These time-consuming, hard to repeat, costly, and due to the limited number of executed test scenarios unreliable road tests, can be largely substituted with Xylon’s logiRECORDER Automotive HIL Video Logger. This all-in-one data logger enables non-intrusive and low latency recording of raw multi-channel video and network data, data analysis, and synchronous playback of the logged data in realistic Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulations that replicate test-vehicle’s multi-camera video system and in-vehicle data busses on developer’s desk.
