Autonomous Driving & ADAS
Almost all vehicle accidents are caused by human error, which can be avoided with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The role of ADAS is to prevent deaths and injuries by reducing the number of car accidents and the serious impact of those that cannot be avoided. Essential safety-critical ADAS applications include: • Pedestrian detection/avoidance • Lane departure warning/correction • Traffic sign recognition • Automatic emergency braking • Blind spot detection These lifesaving systems are key to ensuring the success of ADAS applications, incorporating the latest interface standards and running multiple vision-based algorithms to support real-time multimedia, vision co-processing, and sensor fusion subsystems. The “SmartPhonezation” of ADAS applications is the beginning steps to realization of autonomous vehicles.
