13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Automotive safety technology is pretty easy to wrap your head around, but advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are a little harder to pin down. At this point, the debate over whether anti-lock brakes are really necessary is pretty much nonexistent, but most technologies classified as ADAS are still seen as luxuries or even amusing curiosities. The issue is that advanced driver assistance systems are systems and features that provide a driver with essential information, automate difficult... [Lire la suite]

Bosch connected motorcycle technology: innovative or unnecessary?

Bosch connected motorcycle technology: innovative or unnecessary? This week at CES in Las Vegas, international electronics and engineering company Bosch showed off a connectivity suite of technologies for motorcycles. It starts with the connectivity control unit, which links the motorcycle's onboard brain to the outside world, and finishes with the integrated connectivity cluster, which communicates with the rider via the bike's digital dashboard. In between is an interface called mySPIN that mirrors the user's smartphone –... [Lire la suite]

ADASIS PROTOCOL FOR ADVANCED IN-VEHICLE APPLICATIONS

ADASIS PROTOCOL FOR ADVANCED IN-VESince navigation systems are increasingly entering the vehicle, the available map data may not only be used for routing purposes but also to enable advanced in-vehicle applications. The area of potential features reaches from headlight control up to active safety applications (ADAS1 ). With the ongoing development of navigation based ADAS features the interface to access the so-called ADAS Horizon is of rising importance. In order to specify an industry standard interface for providing an ADAS Horizon... [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 Future Of Driverless Cars: A Roadmap

The Future Of Driverless Cars: A Roadmap The vehicles are coming in droves, and the drivers are conspicuously missing. Driverless cars, also known as connected autonomous vehicles—or CAVs to industry insiders—will eventually navigate themselves with no human input, making driving so different that it might someday be called something else. Auto manufacturers are already promising lounges on wheels, where amenities will carry new importance. In an earlier CenturyLinkVoice story about the commute of the future, experts said...

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...
