MAP-BASED ADAS STANDARDS AND SOLUTIONS: ADASIS AND ELECTRONIC HORIZON

MAP-BASED ADAS STANDARDS AND SOLUTIONS: ADASIS AND ELECTRONIC HORIZON 1. MAP-ENABLED ADAS: CONCEPT Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) seek to warn drivers of impending hazards or to intervene on their behalf; avoid an accident or to undertake certain driving tasks. Clearly, ADAS must have access to data concerning situations unfolding around the vehicle in order to exact the correct maneuver or issue the appropriate warning. In general, this is provided by sensors equipped on the vehicle, which can include ... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Cars Will Require a Totally New Kind of Map

Autonomous Cars Will Require a Totally New Kind of Map AS THE VEHICLE navigated the labyrinthine streets of London and headed for the countryside of Surrey with uncommon speed, the passengers must have felt a bit unnerved. Having selected their destination, they’d relinquished control. They had no communication with the driver, but they could check their progress on a map. The map must have been reassuring, says Peter Skillman, lead designer for Nokia HERE, the maps division the Finnish communications company. Skillman... [Lire la suite]

Advancing map-enhanced driver assistance systems

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... [Lire la suite]

The role of HERE in developing ADAS and other automotive standards

The role of HERE in developing ADAS and other automotive standards HERE has always understood that a map is not simply a navigational tool. Back in the late 1990s, the team could see its potential above and beyond the map’s traditional remit. Take, for example, its use as a sensor in cars. Dietmar Rabel, senior product manager in the automated driving side at HERE, told us: “We created a patent in 1999 for what we call ‘Electronic Horizon’ which allows cars to ‘see around the corner’ – basically the car can adapt cruise control or...
