EB Assist Test Lab

Efficiently orchestrate petabytes of test drive data to validate your algorithms

Test and validation of automated driving involves billions of test miles and petabyte-scale data, generated through real and simulated test drives. We help your company solve the challenges of ADAS/AD engineers while interacting with big data, getting you back to writing algorithms and bringing functions and systems to series production faster.

Benefits

Optimize data and storage management

EB Assist Test Lab knows the value of your data. By simultaneously managing different data lakes, both in the cloud and on-premise, you can improve your data transportation and storage strategy to reduce costs by up to 80%.

Simplify global collaboration

Streamline workflows and interactions with tooling that understands how to manage and socialize a big data lake. Ensure universal accessibility for your developers, partners, and customers around the world thanks to a cloud-based architecture.

Easily find the data you need

Search, find, select, and extract required data to train and validate your algorithms. Find the corner cases in petabytes of data in a matter of seconds. All made possible through an intuitive and user-friendly, web-based application.

Unlock scalability through the cloud

Leverage the flexibility and scalability of our cloud-based architecture for accelerating parallel tasks to meet critical peaks.

Save costs through pay on demand

Through a flexible, on-demand approach, you only need to pay for the computing power and functionality you need. This helps to reduce upfront costs and risk.

Profit from an open design

Our platform with open interfaces can be integrated into your existing tool environment. Also, easily add your proven in-house tools to our toolchain, e.g. simulation software, labeling tools, or data analysis software.

Key ingredients for a streamlined test and validation process

 

Step 1: Data gathering

Test drive recording

Industry-leading data-logging devices such as EB Assist CAR Box allow to capture terabytes of data from multiple sensor sources. As an example, Continental has equipped hundreds of its test vehicles with our solution.

Simulated driving scenes

Simulation is a key aspect in the validation process. Leverage our partner network of simulation companies and make use of your synthetic data.

 


 

Step 2: Ingest data

Ingest petabyte-scale data to your data center or cloud with ease. Manage the upload of driving scenes to the storage:

  • QR code generator for upload traceability
  • Progress notification service
  • Mobile device support
  • Scalable upload

Step 3: Enhance data

Add metadata to your driving scenes:

  • Common-file metadata
  • Geographical metadata
  • Weather conditions
  • Annotations
  • Customizable metadata

Step 4: Search data

Search for driving scenes with specific attributes:

  • Guided search
  • Autocompletion of queries
  • Campaigns to manage queries
  • Explorative annotation workflow

Step 5: Deliver data

Share your driving scenes cross-premises:

  • Authentication
  • Structure your data through campaigns
  • Share data and data requests

 


 

Step 6: Function development

Use EB Assist ADTF or any other development environment for developing functions based on the acquired data or for testing ECU functionality in Software- or Hardware-in-the-Loop server farms.

Managing petabyte-scale test drive data

Elektrobit efficiently and securely orchestrates petabytes of data with Microsoft Azure and EB Assist Test Lab

“Since they no longer have to develop so many tools on their own, our customers can achieve tool-cost savings in the very high double-digit percentage range.”
