MAPS&ADAS and the ADASIS Forum collaboration meeting


MAPS&ADAS and the ADASIS Forum jointly pave the way for the implementation of map-based ADAS applications by means of a standardised interface

 

 

 

 

 

A major milestone was achieved at the end of 2005, with the MAPS&ADAS activities presenting and demonstrating the first results to the ADASIS Forum Members on 15 December 2005 at Honda in Offenbach. With 35 participants representing 24 organisations, this successful event shows the increasing interest of the leading European automotive industry in the ADAS Horizon concept, and the benefit of using digital maps as a predictive sensor to enable or enhance ADAS applications.

 

 

 

 

The morning session focused on the presentation of activities and results starting with an introduction of MAPS&ADAS and ADASIS Forum by Vincent Blervaque (ERTICO, MAPS&ADAS Project Leader and ADASIS Forum Coordinator). Klaus Mezger (DaimlerChrysler, MAPS&ADAS Partner, 2005 ADASIS Forum Chairman and WG2 Leader) followed, presenting the revised version of the ADAS Interface Data Model and Functional Architecture and very promising results from the ADAS Interface test activities performed within MAPS&ADAS in November 2005. Maria Perchina (Navigon, MAPS&ADAS Partner and ADASIS Forum Member) presented the revised version of ADAS Interface Specifications prepared jointly with Johannes Angenvoort (Navigon, ADASIS Forum WG3 Leader) that will be submitted to standardisation bodies in 2006. Finally, Leo Beuk (Siemens VDO, MAPS&ADAS Partner and ADASIS Forum WG5 Leader) introduced the new ADASIS Forum Working Group dedicated to Data Protocol Interoperability to support implementation.

 

During the afternoon, demonstrations were organised by MAPS&ADAS partners to highlight the level of maturity of the ADAS Horizon concept leading to near future market introduction. The demonstration session included live presentations with in-vehicle applications and prototype implementation.

 

Jan Loewenau (BMW, MAPS&ADAS Partner and 2006 ADASIS Forum Chairman) presented the new map-supported Active Cruise Control and showed the enhancement of the series ACC system with the use of digital map. Sinisa Durekovic (Navteq, MAPS&ADAS Partner and ADASIS Forum Member) demonstrated several map-based prototype applications including speed limit assistant and roundabout warning.

In order to demonstrate the interoperability of modules from different partners, Navigon, Navteq and Siemens VDO presented a prototype implementation of the standardised ADAS Interface by feeding their ADAS Horizon receiver modules in parallel with one common map horizon data stream via the same CAN bus.

Within the EC co-funded PReVENT Integrated Project, the three-year MAPS&ADAS cross-functional subproject is developing, testing and validating appropriate methods for gathering, certifying and maintaining ADAS content to enable the provision of ADAS maps as well as a standardised interface between ADAS applications and ADAS map data sources for accessing map data regarding vehicle position. As a cross-functional subproject, MAPS&ADAS role is to support IP PReVENT vertical subprojects which intend to implement the ADAS Interface within their applications.

 

The ADASIS Forum acting as the MAPS&ADAS User Forum is a self-funded industry initiative launched in 2002 and coordinated by ERTICO, aiming at supporting and promoting the development and the implementation of a standardised interface between ADAS applications and digital map content. The ADASIS Forum is composed of 26 Members from vehicle manufacturers, ADAS suppliers, navigation system suppliers and map providers.
