NXP Case

NXP Semiconductors developed a prototype for Autonomous Driving based on its Automotive chipsets. This prototype is called Bluebox and contains several (complementary) processors.

The candidate has to study the Autoware software for Autonomous Driving and create a hardware/software mapping of this stack onto the different elements of the Bluebox. The outcome of this exercise is a system architecture diagram and a motivation of the mapping. An additional optional challenge is to write a program based on Robot Operating System, which enforces vehicle safety if a software component crashes.
