The Basemark Automotive Testing Suite (“BATS”) enables you to develop, evaluate and choose the most fitting System-on-Chip (SoC) for current and future smart cars. BATS is a unique tool designed for the needs of automotive industry OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers.


BATS will support testing of how well an automotive system is capable of running:

  • Graphics Performance of In-Vehicle Infotainment system (IVI) and Instrument Clusters
  • Data handling & processing performance
  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
  • Machine Vision algorithms
  • Autonomous Driving functions
BATS is far more than a collection of tests. It represents the demanding real-time environment of a modern car, with multiple real-time critical processes. You will be able to adjust the parameters of the tests and define your own workloads. Whether it’s Autonomous Driving (AD) or HMI related tasks, you will have a range of options to choose from. For instance, you will be able to adjust the number of displays in use.  They can be treated as separate entities, as a large virtual screen or as a combination of both. You can decide which screens need Safety Critical rendering and which ones do not.
BATS will work on different Operating Systems and in virtualized environments; the tests can be run in parallel. In short, BATS is all about finding the appropriate level of support for widely different hardware options at the car industry’s disposal.

Pricing And Availability

The first version of BATS is currently in development. Select customers and partners can get access to the product and can let their feedback shape the design and implementation of the underlying tests.

Qualifying customers get access to all pre-release versions of the tool, as well as a complementary license for the resulting commercial product. Basemark will work on specific modules (IVI, Digital Instrument Cluster and Autonomous Driving) in close cooperation with partners and industry experts.

Pre-licensed customers get access to source and binary licenses of pre-release versions (alpha to release candidate) as well as the generally available product.

New modules will be developed based on customer demand and feedback.

Target Hardware & OS Requirements

BATS will support a wide range of hardware and software platforms.

  • Supported Graphics APIs: OpenGL SC 2.0, OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan 1.0
  • Default supported OS: Linux and QNX. Support for other operating systems to be added when deemed feasible

We are now calling all players in the industry to apply for this development program! Interested?
