<p>Customizable Embedded 3D Surround
View Turn-Key Solution on Apalis iMX6
- Author: Thomas Hase, TES Electronic Solutions GmbH
Multi-Camera 3D Surround View systems are already established in many passenger vehicles. Demand
for such systems now also grows for special vehicles like construction machines, harvesters, buses or
military vehicles. In comparison to personal cars, these vehicles are produced in a rather moderate
volume and have a high need for customization of the optical system.
In this blog post, we present a customizable 3D Surround View Turn-Key solution based on the Toradex Apalis iMX6
SoM based on the NXP® i.MX 6 SoC, that can be quickly adapted concerning the specific requirements of the targeted

We also explain how to get familiar with the topic of 3D surround view, evaluating the solution via a step-by-step
approach and finally how to come to a product meeting your specific needs.
TES 3D Surround View Stitching Library – the heart of the system solution
TES Electronic Solutions provides a 3D Surround View software library designed for embedded systems, CPU/GPU
independency, and high customizability. Detailed information can be found on the TES 3D Surround View Website.
The library takes raw fish-eye pictures from memory and computes a 3D View of the vehicle in its maneuver situation.
TES 3D Surround View Highlights:
Increases safety and comfort through improved situation awareness:
•Excellent stitching and 3D scene generation
•Watch your maneuver situation from any position outside or inside the vehicle
•Any number of predefined viewing positions (“Views”) possible with animated transitions between different views
•Many parameters configurable per “View”
•Highly customizable and portable
•Independent from the used type of cameras (the software expects raw fish-eye pictures in memory)
