Xtend

Extend EB solys with Xtend scripts

EB's recently launched system analysis tool EB solys is shipped with powerful built-in scripting capabilities. A rich API, which is based on top of the programming language Xtend, enables users to extend the basic feature set of EB solys through expressive scripts. The IDE within EB solys comprises an editor for developing Xtend scripts. It is possible to instantly compile in the background and execute through annotations. This allows for very short turnaround times when integrating new functions.

Map data as co-pilot

New tech paper - Map data as co-pilot: extended scope for automated driving

An autonomous car requires information about its environment to act properly. Sensor data will have to replace human senses. Each type of sensor has different strengths and weaknesses, so multiple sensors need to be combined to get the most probable picture of the environment. Data from specially equipped cars is not sufficient to keep maps of entire countries up to date. Every car and every driver must participate to maintain a highly accurate map in the same way as Wikipedia users do to keep the world's largest encyclopedia updated. Find out how EB's technology contributes to this approach.

EB robinos

New tech paper: Automated valet parking with EB robinos

In this tech paper, Elektrobit reveals the increased complexity within vehicles using highly automated driving (HAD). It is caused by many different components that need to be coordinated and combined. To manage this, a change in current state-of-the-art development procedures is needed.

machine learning

New tech paper: Chances & challenges of using machine learning for highly automated driving

Recent impressive results in artificial intelligence have been facilitated by machine learning, particularly by deep learning solutions. Machine learning and deep learning enables impressive results, especially in tackling extremely complex problems. It is obvious that these technologies are also considered in the context of highly automated driving. Initial prototypes have been developed, but the industrial production of such functionalities poses additional challenges.

The aim of this article is to increase the understanding of capabilities and limitations that machine learning technologies have and to highlight the importance of this topic in the context of self-driving cars.
