Electronic Horizon - Providing Digital Map Data for ADAS Applications

Christian Ress, Aria Etemad, Detlef Kuck, Julián Requejo

Abstract

The number of vehicle navigation devices has increased tremendously during the last years. The digital maps of these systems contain a lot of valuable information that provides benefit for other features besides route guidance as well. The area of potential applications reaches from driver information and warning up-to comfort and active safety applications, so-called ADAS1. Since built-in sensors are limited to a relatively short range, digital map data can be used to "look" much further into the direction of the vehicle's path. The map data, e.g. road geometry, number of lanes, speed limits, etc. is provided on a vehicle bus system as the so-called Electronic Horizon. European automotive industry has teamed up in the ADASIS Forum to develop a common standardized interface to access the Electronic Horizon. Ford Research & Advanced Engineering Europe has developed a prototype system for Lane Keeping Assistance as one application example.
