The VIP-II, a new multi-processor architecture developed by Infineon, provides the required performance for future camera-based advanced driver assistance systems. The integration of data-processing, control and communication, an optimized set of peripherals and low power consumption will help to reduce the overall systems costs required for a future wide market penetration. The VIP-II software tool-chain supports a PC-based application development process from a first functional reference design up to further development steps including parallel programming. The paper proposes a multi-threading processing framework for image feature extraction and motion estimation. Performance measurements show an achievable performance in the range of today's desktop processors.
