Parking assistance system

  • 20-Dec-2011 10:09 EST

As part of a collaborative effort, Broadcom, Freescale Semiconductor, and OmniVision Technologies offer a 360-degree surround-view parking assistance system. It is the world’s first ethernet-based parking assistance solution, claim the companies. The collaboration is an important step in the migration from a closed application to an open and scalable ethernet-based driver-assistance network in which several systems can easily access information. The system incorporates Broadcom’s BCM89810 BroadR-Reach physical layer transceiver, which enables low-cost ethernet connectivity at 100 Mb/s over unshielded single-twisted pair cable. The highly integrated Freescale Qorivva MPC5604E 32-bit microcontroller manages video streaming and camera control. The OmniVision OV10630’s color high-dynamic-range system-on-a-chip structure with fully processed YUV output format enables a streamlined camera module architecture.
