Over the past decade, a lot of researches have been done on the development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Most of these ADAS are now active and need to be tested and evaluated before large deployment. In these ADAS, the prototyping and the implementation of the control stages are risky stages and not so easy to carry out. Indeed, the prototyping and the test of such reactive algorithms need heavy hardware and software supports (dedicated vehicle, actuators, hardware architecture, software architecture, sensors). To achieve such active devices, additional developments and implementation of numerous expensive embedded devices are required. Therefore, in order to reduce both time and risk, in early design stage, it becomes necessary to have a very realistic simulation environment dedicated to the development and to the evaluation of these ADAS. For such virtual platform, it is mandatory to provide physics-driven road environments, virtual embedded sensors, and physics-based vehicle models. In this publication, we present a dedicated couple of platforms with their efficient interconnection for the prototyping of such ADAS. Initially, the SiVIC simulation platform has been developed to generate the virtual world (environments, sensors, actuators, vehicles). In order to improve the real time prototyping capabilities of SiVIC, an efficient interconnection of this first platform has been done with RTMaps platform. This second one is mainly dedicated to the multi-sensors data processing (data management, fusion, flow recording and replaying). In this paper we will show the interest of such bi-directionnal interconnected platforms to prototype complex and real time embedded ADAS. This interconnection can be done as well on an only one computeur than on a distributed and distant computers architecture. The relevance of this approach will be illustrated with an automatic parking application.
