the usage for radar replay sample


We have one CUSTOM ( ARS 408 radar ).
And we want to know the usage for radar replay sample code for custom radar base on CAN port.
thank you

Dear Linda_Yu,
You need to select type of device as CUSTOM in sample_radar_replay parameters and implement decoder plugin. Please check file:///usr/local/driveworks-2.0/doc/nvsdk_html/sensorplugins_mainsection.html for more details. Also, we have held webinar on integrating customer sensor in DW. please check

Dear SivaRamaKrishna,
I have joined the webinar that you mentioned, and have some questions as below. Thanks for your information.
In the presentation’s demo, the demo sample is lidar. And in the summary the contents indicate Radar Full Sensor Plugin support planned for Drive Software 10. So the Radar sensor plugin is not complete now? Maybe if our communication port is not ethernet, it could not work now?

Also, we have held webinar on integrating customer sensor in DW. please check

Dear SivaRamaKrishna,
Thanks for your reply.I find the Custom Radars (Decoder Only) sample function as below. Could there are any methods for Custom CAN-based radar decoder without ip as below?

““radar.socket,ip=X.X.X.X,port=XXXX,device={CUSTOM},decoder=<>,protocol={udp, tcp}””

Dear SivaRamaKrishna,
Would you have adapter between CAN-based radar and PX2 or Xavier ? Such as CONTINENTAL_ARS408 or DELPHI_ESR2_5.
Thank you.

Yes. We have Comprehensive Sensor Plugin framework that enables the user to integrate non-natively supported sensors into the DriveWorks Sensor Abstraction Layer. DRIVE SW 10.0 includes support for Radar, GNSS and CAN sensor plugins. We will be releasing DRIVE SW 10.0 very soon. Stay tuned for release update.

Dear SivaRamaKrishna,
Will DRIVE SW 10.0 support CAN-BASE radar? e.g ARS 408 radar

Dear melinda,
We will check this internally and update you. Are you asking for native support or via plugin?

Hi SivaRamaKrishnam,
Thanks for your kindly support.
I want to know "native support and via plugin " thanks…

Dear SivaRamaKrishna,
Would you have switch between CAN-based radar (CONTINENTAL_ARS408、DELPHI_ESR2_5) and PX2 or Xavier ?
Or switch for CAN-ethernet cable?
Thank you.

Dear Linda_Yu,
Natively we do not support it. We have not tested though, by using comprehensive plugin library(From DRIVE SW 10.0) you should be able to bring it up.

Hi Linda_Yu,

The DRIVE Software 10.0 is now available to download. New features include sensor plugin support for RADAR, GNSS, and CAN, new image processing modules, and improved DNNs for calculating time-to-collision, detecting multiple intersections per frame, and more. Please migrate to this new version. Download Now

Dear Sir,
I reference DRIVE Software 10.0 about radar chapters as below. If we want to connect Radar ARS408(CAN-BASE) to Xavier and apply Driveworks radar APIs, must we need the ethernet connector for the tasks?

Drive core → radar section
Radar usage
Radar replay sample

./sample_radar_replay --protocol=[radar.virtual|radar.socket]

Dear melinda.hung,
Yes. You connect via ethernet. Currently we are not utilizing any radars via CAN interface and testing only via ethernet interfaces.

If you implement your custom radar plugin with Comprehensive Sensor Plugin Framework, you can run sample_radar_replay with radar.custom or radar.virtual protocol as mentioned in “Custom Radars (Comprehensive)” tutorial (file:///usr/local/driveworks/doc/nvsdk_html/sensorplugins_radarsensor.html).
