Experts Delve Further In Technology That Would Assist Drivers
It only does not take simple engineers and mechanics to do the job of creating the best type of vehicles around. It also does not take anybody to design the best kind of Ford, Mazda, BMW, or Volvo 140 body parts. Even the most simple things that you can find in a vehicle are designed and thought many times over by automotive experts and they really do a great job at it.
Currently, NAVTEQ is out to hold and sponsor a panel discussion so as to help people in the automotive business get more ideas through the most natural means – brain storming. NAVTEQ is currently the leading provider of digital map data all over the automotive globe. These digital map data can be used for vehicle navigation. The organization would be trooping up with BMW’s group research and technology, Ygomi, as well as the Ibeo Automotive Sensor.
According to NAVTEQ, they would be sponsoring such a thing wherein they could actually focus and delve into making enhancements in digital maps. Also, they would be looking into creating and making improvements to applications that make use of ADAS like the adaptive cruise control, adaptive front light control, warnings for lane and road departures, smart transmission control, and collision avoidance. Such applications actually do have the capacity of enhancing and improving the ability of any driver to react to various road environments. Aside from these, other available equipment and features that vehicles like vehicle digital maps, sensors on board, radars, light detection and ranging or LIDAR, and video cameras on board can also be enhanced with great help from such a brain storming session sponsored by NAVTEQ.
Bob Denaro, the current vice president of ADAS’ development just for NAVTEQ, shares, “Industry experts are predicting that ADAS will have an enormous impact on automotive safety and driver comfort in the next three to five years. High quality digital maps such as those produced by NAVTEQ will make these systems even more effective and bridge the gap between a sterile automated system and what a good driver can see for himself about the road and environment surrounding his vehicle, the key to driver acceptance of and ultimately demand for ADAS.”
