Stella, our Nucleus RTOS powered, self-balancing robot generates kernel and application level trace data which is then visualized using Sourcery Analyzer. Sourcery Analyzer is used to detect and explore wheel angle bias, and test the hypothesis that perhaps the corrective pulse width signals are causing the wheel angle bias. We also use the measurement tool to quantitatively characterize the worsening wheel angle bias.
Instead of relying on external tools, analysis pipelines and visualization workflows, Sourcery Analyzer is purpose built to allow embedded software developers to quickly and easily explore trace data and engage in further hypothesis testing in the familiar Eclipse based Sourcery CodeBench environment they used to develop the application.
Watch as we trace and explore Stella’s wheel angle bias issue:
