Using Predictive Digital Map Data to Enhance Vehicle Safety and Comfort

Abstract

Navigation systems based on GPS and digital maps have become extremely popular in passenger and commercial vehicles during the last years. The accuracy and amount of information contained in digital maps is constantly evolving, offering a tremendous amount of knowledge about the road network. In addition to providing driving directions, this information may be used on a wide range of technologies. One of these is the so-called Electronic Horizon, an application based on digital maps that helps to overcome the physical limits of many vehicle sensors, such as radar and vision systems. This is accomplished by predicting where the driver is heading, and subsequently extracting from the digital maps information about the predicted path. This paper provides an introduction to the Electronic Horizon, the Most-likely Path concept, and gives some examples of how digital map data can be used for the enhancement of comfort and safety functions.
