Digital maps have large potential for road safety to enhance or enable preventive and active safety applications by extending driver horizon. As a predictive sensor called ADAS horizon, digital maps are an additional source of information providing look-ahead capability for ADAS applications.
The MAPS&ADAS subproject is driven by needs identified by the ADASIS Forum with regard to the use of digital maps as primary and/or secondary sensors for ADAS.
The access to map data by applications other than navigation requires a standardised interface to avoid specific solutions dependent on OEMs and application suppliers. This will enable reduction of implementation costs and near future market introduction
The production of ADAS maps require the procurement of ADAS attributes
Within the PReVENT Integrated Project, the three-year MAPS&ADAS cross-functional subproject is developing, testing and validating appropriate methods in gathering, certifying and maintaining ADAS attributes 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.
MAPS&ADAS contributions to the IP level results are :
ADAS Interface ready for implementation by PReVENT applications
New methods for ADAS attributes acquisition? enabling cost-effective provision of accurate and up-to-date ADAS Maps, compliant to ADAS application requirements
Provision of ADAS Maps for PReVENT application test sites (Lower Saxony, Torino, Valladolid and Gothenburg)
Safety impact assessment of ADAS maps
MAPS&ADAS is implementing applications in order to validate concepts developed in the subproject:
Test container and visualisation module to test and validate the four ADAS Horizon Provider systems developed within MAPS&ADAS
ACC (Active Cruise Control) to evaluate the ADAS Interface implementation within a commercial application
Driver Warning System (HotSpot and Speed Limit Warnings) to assess the safety impact of ADAS MapsACC (Active Cruise Control) to validate the ADAS interface
The MAPS&ADAS subproject focuses on two main milestones at the IP level:
Additionally, the subproject contributes to a series of requirements, specifications, implementations, tests and validations over its 36-month duration.
MAPS&ADAS Subproject Coordinator
Several IP PReVENT applications, SASPENCE, LATERAL SAFE, SAFELANE, WILLWARN and INSAFES, intend to implement the validated ADAS Interface and use ADAS Maps of IP PReVENT test sites produced within MAPS&ADAS.

MAPS&ADAS subproject is based on activities initiated by the ADASIS Forum in 2002. During the lifetime of MAPS&ADAS, the ADASIS Forum is considered as the User Forum with 23 Members at the moment from different sectors (car manufacturers, ADAS supplier industry, navigation industry and map industry). The ADASIS Forum is open to all organisations interested in the development and the implementation of the ADAS Interface.
