Advancing map-enhanced driver assistance systems

To enable and/or enhance the functionalities of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), vehicle manufacturers want to access and use the information provided by navigation systems such as map data, vehicle position and speed. Today, however, navigation map databases are only accessible to navigation applications and stored in the proprietary format of the navigation system. In order for ADAS applications to access this data, an appropriate information exchange interface must be defined. This is the overall aim of the ADASIS Forum.

However, technology is not the only obstacle to the deployment of map-enhanced ADAS applications. To ensure that the technology developed by the ADASIS Forum actually makes it off the drawing board and test tracks and onto the roads, the Forum is devoting time and effort to encourage the automotive industry to exploit the results and accelerate market introduction.
