The ADAS-on-a-Treadmill Demonstrator is a laboratory platform used for researching & validating results on real-time safety-critical systems in the context of assisted and autonomous driving algorithms. The demonstrator is a reusable, shared experimentation platform used for empirical evaluation suited for model-driven development, real-time systems and embedded systems. The platform demonstrates state-of-the-art and future connected vehicle technologies.
Distributed real-time systems require predictable networks to exchange application data within bounded delays. Switched Ethernet is an attractive networking technology for distributed real-time systems. However, Ethernet devices require special coordination mechanisms to support real-time traffic because of their inherent competitive approach. Real-Time Ethernet (RTE) protocols aim at providing amendments to standard Ethernet to ensure latency guarantees and in-order delivery of real-time data, while keeping compatibility with Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) infrastructure tailored for high-bandwidth best-effort traffic.
