This paper shows the results of the implementation and validation of the MAPS&ADAS interface for a precision navigation in ACC. Some improvements and additions to the protocol are described. The paper explains further how driver assistance systems, using ACC as an example, can take advantage of navigation data. The operational concept of the assistance function has to be designed according to the particular properties of this additional data source. Even with the quality of navigation data available today, BMW’s ACC system can be enhanced by dynamics, which adapt to the situation, providing even more benefit for the customer. Furthermore, considerations and a comparison of the BMW protocol with the MAPS&ADAS protocol are given.
The ADAS Interface and protocol developed, tested and validated within MAPS&ADAS will be further developed and improved by the ADASIS Forum and its 30 Members from vehicle manufacturers, ADAS suppliers, navigation system suppliers and map providers.
