Autonomous Driving Systems
What appeared to be nearly inconceivable at the beginning of the century has now come tangibly close: the vision of self-driving vehicles.
What are autonomous driving systems?
Over the last decade ADS (Automated Driving Systems) have been brought to the market and some vehicles today have already reached or are close to reaching Level 3 Automation. Reaching Level 4 and Level 5 automation is predicted to be the biggest breakthrough innovation in mobility. The continuing evolution of ADS aims to deliver even greater safety benefits and by that — one day — can handle the whole task of driving when we don’t want to or can’t do it ourselves. Fully automated cars and trucks that drive us, instead of us driving them, will become a reality.
In this module, our students will tackle learning projects that will allow them to set up and administer ADS.
Introduction to Autonomous Driving Systems.
An autonomous car is a vehicle capable of sensing its environment and operating without human involvement. A human passenger is not required to take control of the vehicle at any time, nor is a human passenger required to be present in the vehicle at all.
Cars that can sense
Make 2 or more sets of Automotive Components exchange CAN messages. A Controller Area Network (CAN bus) is a robust vehicle bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other’s applications without a host computer.
Make an Autonomous Car perceive Road Lines. Automated Lane detection is a crucial function of self-driving cars to achieve a fully autonomous mode.
Automatic parking is an autonomous car-manoeuvring system that moves a vehicle from a traffic lane into a parking spot to perform parallel, perpendicular, or angle parking.
