Driver assistance systems and outlook into automated driving


25th November, 15:30-16:50

Video based driver assistance systems is a continuously growing field in automotive industry. Based on surround sensors such as radar, video and/or ultrasound, driver assistance systems sense and interpret the traffic scenes. They assist the driver in various driving situations and increase the driving comfort. In addition, driver assistance systems improve driving safety by supporting the driver in critical driving situations that require rapid and safe action.

The workshop will make an overview of the safety and comfort solutions provided by Bosch with an outlook into automated driving technologies, and with strong technical focus on the stereo video cameras as key sensors for automated driving. It will also highlight innovative video algorithms that can bring new functions in the vehicles equipped with the next generation stereo cameras.
