EnSilica offers the Kalman Filter acceleration IP core for use in situational awareness radar sensors for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), such as electronic stability-control systems, pre-crash impact mitigation, blind-spot detection, lane-departure detection and self-parking. Kalman filtering is used in sensor-based ADAS as part of the radar tracker to smooth out position and velocity measurements obtained from the radar sensors and front-end digital signal processor (DSP) unit. According to EnSilica, the compact, low gate-count architecture of the device enables the computationally intensive matrix operations involved in Kalman filtering to be cost-effectively off-loaded from the CPU.
