Autonomous Driving software platform IZAC​ ​

Overview

IZAC is a software platform for Autonomous Driving.
By connecting a sensor to a computer (PC) equipped with IZAC and making it recognize it is possible to control every machine by making judgments and controlling through IZAC's control components.Through IZAC, you can do all the cognition, judgment and operation necessary to move the machine.

In addition, IZAC was designed and developed from the scratch as a middleware and development environment specialized for Autonomous Driving automobiles on public roads. It has been adopted as a platform for demonstration experiments of Autonomous Driving that ZMP has been doing so far and has earned its achievements.

As an application example within the company, it is utilized across various projects with Autonomous Driving vehicles, construction machines, buses, home delivery robots.
Examples for Autonomous Driving control software platform application
Autonomous Driving development platform RoboCar series, it is installed as an execution environment of Autonomous Driving algorithm, and it is provided as a public road demonstration experiment package.
In addition, we provide it for IZAC development environment for Autonomous Driving software developers.

IZAC is a control software & computer that supports automation of every machine.

Functions

To Realize Autonomous driving technology , a system that combines both hardware and software on an in-vehicle computer for developers.

Functions
① Easy realization of real-time property necessary for Autonomous Driving

IZAC function and mechanism

The IZAC system is a Linux system that can be built exclusively for component development for Autonomous Driving . You can exploit the constructed architecture and perform prototyping of algorithms and functions quickly.

IZAC is a framework in which a framework that runs on Linux-based systems and several components implemented as lightweight tasks run concurrently. Each component communicates by message exchange.
