ADAS and inertial navigation: The safest road to full autonomy

The role of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in the automotive sector is growing, not least because of their importance to future connected and autonomous vehicles. In this webinar, we look at the five stages of ADAS to reach full autonomy in automotive applications and the benefits that inertial navigation can provide to these systems.

Overview

An autonomous car must know its position and where it's going, which is very different from a human-driven vehicle. The way we navigate, as humans, is typically through relative positioning: we are positioning ourselves and the car in relation to the lane markers, different landmarks and traffic signs.

The autonomous car can do this as well, but it's not good enough for the computer-controlled system. It must also know exactly where it is compared to where it is going, as the autonomous car must know and plan the whole route in advance.

The challenge is that in some cases the GMSS or camera will not be available or functional, so absolute positioning for that period of time must rely only on an inertial measurement unit (IMU).

IMUs, or inertial sensors, can help in both the absolute positioning and relative position, and are independent of anything happening outside of the car.

In this webinar, we look at the five stages of ADAS to reach full autonomy in automotive applications and the benefits that inertial navigation can provide to these systems.
