The Assisted Driving Control Unit 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.).
