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) and also with infrastructure (V2X) 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 infrastructure) 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.
Vehicle safety electronics
Safety features such as cameras, night vision, positioning systems, restraint control systems, and brake systems interact with drivers to make driving safer.
Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) include features such as automated braking and parking, corrective steering, cameras, and in-car traffic warnings.
V2V and V2X
Standardized vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-intelligent-infrastructure (V2X) communication will improve safety and efficiency while reducing emissions throughout the entire transport ecosystem.
The transition to AD requires a platform to unify the technologies behind driver-sensing applications and vehicle connectivity.
