Automotive Pedestrian Detection with Protium S1
Pedestrian detection is an essential function in today’s advanced, automotive driver-assistance systems. The intense verification requirements of these systems, combined with the ever-increasing time-to-market and competitive pressure, calls for new ways for product validation and hardware/software integration. With its fast time-to-prototype and innovative ASIC-to-FPGA migration capabilities, the Cadence® Protium™ S1 FPGA-Based Prototyping Platform plays an integral and key role in getting these systems verified and working correctly the first time. The Pedestrian Recognition reference design runs a human form recognition algorithm on a live video stream and visualizes the result for further processing, all on the Protium S1 FPGA-Based Prototyping Platform. This makes it the ideal environment for early, pre-silicon hardware/software validation and proof-of-concept demonstration.
The Protium S1 FPGA-Based Prototyping Platform is the latest generation prototyping solution enabling early software development, throughput regressions, and high-performance system validation. It combines high-capacity FPGA boards, based on Virtex-Ultrascale FPGAs, with a complete implementation and debug software suite, providing ultra-fast design bring-up and unprecedented ease of use. Compatible with Cadence’s Palladium® platforms and SpeedBridge® adapters, it allows for the quick and smooth transition of the system-on-chip (SoC) design from an existing emulation environment into a high-performance FPGA-based prototype.
