In this work the specific software tools designed to manage a high performance data acquisition board to be used in active multi-sensory systems is presented. Specifically, the developments which has been carried out allow to monitor the coded emission/reception of two sensory barriers for obstacle detection on railways, based on infrared (IR) and ultrasonic (US) sensors. Additionally, it has been developed the tools to detect the coded emissions. As a result of that, it can be detected the existence of obstacles between both barriers, based on the lack of signal at the receiving barrier. The developed software can be considered the previous step to implement the hardware prototype. Initially it has been validated the feasibility of the algorithm, optimizing the processing time to obtain the detection results in quasi-real time.
