Recording Tools
The following tools are available in both NVIDIA DriveWorks and NVIDIA DRIVE Software releases.


Tool Description
Basic Recording Tool Records sensor data as specified in a command-line interface.
TextUI Recording Tool Records sensor data as specified in a Textual UI.
GUI Recording Tool Presents a GUI through which sensor recording is specified and viewed.

NVIDIA® DriveWorks SDK contains several tools for recording data from the sensors attached to NVIDIA DRIVE platforms. The recording applications data can then store the data on an eSATA/USB drive. The data from each sensor is synchronized with data from other sensors by adding a time stamp to the data.

Please ensure the following for your eSATA/USB drive:
  1. It is formatted correctly to show "GUID Partition Table".
  2. Read/Write permissions are enabled for the user and/or group.
  3. There are no spaces within its name. This causes the Recorder tool to not detect it.

The recording tools in the table above are designed around a layered architecture. They build on top of each other and communicate via UNIX pipes.
