The Eclipse-eCAL Project Releases a WebSocket Bridge for Foxglove

Earlier this month, the Eclipse-eCAL Project released a WebSocket bridge that enables users to connect eCAL systems to Foxglove. With this bridge, you can now leverage Foxglove's visualization panels to explore and debug eCAL systems.

Eclipse-eCAL (enhanced Communication Abstraction Layer) is an open-source communication middleware that allows software components to communicate with each other efficiently and at scale, making it ideal for the autonomous driving space. The new WebSocket bridge allows roboticists to connect their eCAL systems to Foxglove for instant visualization in a web browser. Engineers can now load large amounts of data into Foxglove, and rely on its rich 2D and 3D visualization capabilities to analyze complex data streams from their autonomous vehicles.

Announcement post by Rex Schilasky, an Eclipse-eCAL project lead and Head of Rapid Prototyping Software Platform Development (ADAS) at Continental.

We are incredibly grateful that this contribution has helped the open source community take full advantage of the Foxglove platform, and we hope this integration transforms the way your team approaches AV development.

If you’re interested, check out the eCAL and Foxglove docs to get started. For questions about eCAL, you can start a discussion on the eCAL GitHub repository. For questions about Foxglove, feel free to email us or join our Slack community for live support.
