Since the development kit comes with a preinstalled Linux-4-Tegra distribution on Ubuntu 16.04, ServiceXpert was able to successfully port the code in a short time. The effort required for this porting was also small due to the extensive operating sys- tem on the board. The software could be compiled directly on the board. Error-prone cross-compilation of the source code via a host PC or laborious flashing or migrating of the final program was not necessary. Opti- misations and architecture-specific compi- lation parameters could be partly adopted. A demo application was already executable after a first integration cycle without hard- ware-specific optimisations. To fully exploit the potential of the hardware, the powerful GPU of the TX2 board was used. NVIDIA‘s proprietary software libraries for the CUDA technology are available for this pur- pose. This provides significant performance benefits for a large number of simple, parallel computational operations, such as linear ma- trix-vector operations. In a further develop- ment step, the corresponding code sections and associated operations were quickly iden- tified by ServiceXpert engineers, optimised for image feature recognition, and integrated with GPU-accelerated features. Using the NVIDIA technology, the ServiceXpert development team has been able to extend its broad experience in close-to-production environmental detection and will incorporate this into existing projects with customers and partners. As a hardware-neutral service pro- vider, the ServiceXpert engineers repeatedly draw on numerous project experiences in the evaluation and selection of hardware partners and regularly evaluate existing offers and ser- vices. The requirements of the customer can thus be made available and incorporated into an application-specific parameterisation and hardware recommendation. n ServiceXpert GmbH www.servicexpert.de/en/home Website Sebastian Kutter Systems Engineer E/E System Design Digital BusinessCard New ideas.
