Enhanced driver assistance

  • 11-Mar-2009 09:29 EDT

A map and positioning engine (MPE) strategy from Navteq offers improved map-enhanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to all vehicles, including those without a navigation system. The solution accelerates the development of ADAS applications embedded directly in a vehicle’s CAN bus or electronic sensor. The MPE map contains ADAS geometry and ADAS attributes with a reduced file size, permitting broader vehicle adoption. A recommended MPE specification outlines deployment of the GPS, microprocessor, memory, and all required software to predict information, search, and interpret attributes on the road. The design is small enough to be implemented on a circuit board or distributed in the electronics architecture of the vehicle. It is always on and does not require a stored navigation route.
