Development of current ADAS is focused on single functionality and independent operation. Development of next generation cooperative and automated ADAS applications requires large amounts of information to be combined and interpreted. To operate efficiently and effectively, these applications should not operate in isolation, but share resources, information and functionalities. Furthermore, development, prototyping, real-life testing and evaluation of the applications in multiple-vehicle scenarios becomes more complex. In this paper iVSP, a scalable, multi-sensor fusion and processing architecture, is proposed for efficient development, prototyping, testing and evaluation of cooperative and automated driving applications in small to medium scale pilots.
