The Rise of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD)
Already today we see early benefits of ADAS with features which help reduce collisions and injuries on the road. These benefits grow exponentially when vehicles are connected so they can share information with one another (V2V; vehicle-to-vehicle) and also with everything around them (V2X; vehicle-to-everything) that help make the roads even safer. Ericsson and Veoneer are partnering to make widespread market adoption of ADAS & AD vehicles a reality
Veoneer provides cutting edge technologies for the safety of ADAS/AD vehicles, including features such as adaptive cruise control, automatic parking, forward collision warning systems and lane change assistance. These capabilities, however, cannot work to their full potential without a connected vehicle platform that can provide split-second performance and connect to other vehicles and infrastructure along the roadway. Also, as the number of connected cars with ADAS/AD capabilities increases, the amount of data the network needs to ingest and analyze grows to gigantic proportions.
Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud provides a platform for intelligent V2X (vehicle to everything) and is built to handle massive growth in connected vehicle data traffic. Able to communicate securely across clouds and different manufacturers’ vehicles, Ericsson’s platform enables V2V and V2X communication that will improve safety and efficiency. Its cutting-edge 5G technology further strengthens the intelligent vehicle and infrastructure “co-operation”.
Together, Ericsson and Veoneer are building the customer trust that automakers need to make widespread market adoption of ADAS/AD vehicles a reality.
Cycling plays a key role in the development of sustainable cities, but cyclists need to know they are safe when sharing the road with motorized vehicles. Innovative ADAS safety systems can warn drivers of nearby cyclists to avoid collisions, even when cyclists are not visible to the driver.
Construction worker safety
Innovative driver safety systems can alert drivers of road work long before it comes into the driver’s line of sight, ensuring driver awareness and that efficient measures as accurate speed and detours can be taken. Introducing Construction worker safety workers don’t encounter dangerous surprises.
Benefits of partnering with Ericsson
Ericsson leads the 5G race in standardization, and its Connected Vehicle Cloud provides the scalability, security and flexibility that automakers need to connect products and services. Vehicle manufacturers can easily expand services to new segments and regions thanks to Ericsson’s flexible deployment model, with a central node and regional nodes based upon varying market requirements and local regulations. Plus, OEMs retain secure control of proprietary data such as vehicle and driver telematics as they partner with local businesses, traffic authorities, insurance companies, entertainment channels and maintenance providers.
