Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit

Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit - ADCU

The Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit - ADCU facilitates a safe and secure multipurpose processing platform which is ideally suited for applications in the realm of Highly Automated Driving (HAD).

This is achieved by integrating selected hardware and software that is monitoring a vehicle's motion and guiding its routing states at runtime. Moreover, the ADCU executes an Environment Model (EM) based on signal feeds retrieved from onboard surveillance sensors and additional info. This is passed along to its trajectory planning algorithms to determine the optimal (ecological, safe, convenient) path and to coordinate the multitude of actuators (e.g. brake, suspension, etc.).

Technical Specifications

  • Interfaces: Chassis, Powertrain & ADAS
  • AUTOSAR architecture
  • Single/dual/multi core processor leads to faster processing
  • Multiple communication options (e.g. FlexRay, Lin, etc.)
  • Sensors: Optional on board
  • Functional safety level up to ASIL D
  • Reduced number of ECUs leads to space, cost and weight savings
  • Modular and scalable processing platform
  • Supports domain-centric vehicle topologies
  • Targets: Safety, security and performance

The ADAS Next Level Organization allows us to meet these complex requirements in the best possible way. Engineering Sensorics and Systems fosters our technology leadership through high-quality components, systems and features. These responsibilities apply to both sensors and systems. All product-related aspects of the complete life cycle lie with Program Management (Systems, Radar and Camera). Sales & Customer Project Management, in turn, is the central customer interface.
