This contribution provides a review of fundamental goals, development and future perspectives of driver assistance systems. Mobility is a fundamental desire of mankind. Virtually any society strives for safe and efficient mobility at low ecological and economic costs. Nevertheless, its technical implementation significantly differs among societies,(More)
In this article a modular system architecture for fusion of data from environment sensors for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) is proposed. The architecture allows different applications to have access to the fused sensor data by processing the data with respect to specific demands of different application groups. In the article the growing(More)
In research projects for future ADAS functions a dense environment model covering free space is often necessary, which is obtained by complementing or replacing a common object list by a grid based environment model. The drawbacks of grid based models are their demands for memory, computational resources and bandwidth. This paper analyzes the influence of(More)
Advanced Rider Assistance Systems (ARAS) for powered two-wheelers improve driving behaviour and safety. Further developments of intelligent vehicles will also include video-based systems, which are successfully deployed in cars. Porting such modules to motorcycles, the camera pose has to be taken into account, as e. g. large roll angles produce significant(More)
This article provides a general ergonomic framework of cooperative guidance and control for vehicles with an emphasis on the cooperation between a human and a highly automated vehicle. In the twenty-first century, mobility and automation technologies are increasingly fused. In the sky, highly automated aircraft are flying with a high safety record. On the(More)
Lane change is a very demanding maneuver. Therefore, a maneuver-based lane change assistance system has been developed which, by means of a single-task-combining assistance concept, supports the driver from the driver's first lane change intention through the final movement of the vehicle from the initial to the target lane, without automatization of the(More)
This paper presents an approach for object and lane detection using only a scanning lidar sensor. The test vehicle used and the applied lane detection algorithm based on an extended Kalman-filter are described. Measurements on public roads are performed and compared to the results of an optical lane recognition as a reference.
The results of a fundamental study on developing a general criticality criterion for driving situations are presented. The meaning of criticality in driving situations is defined and the influencing parameters are analyzed. Furthermore, a maneuver-based lane change assistance system is presented and evaluated in subject tests. The outcomes of the general(More)
Many improvements have been made in the area of vehicle safety and pedestrian protection; however, urban intersections are still black spots for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). One of the main reasons is the uncertainty of the future driving direction at intersections. Due to that uncertainty, the early activation of an intersection ADAS will(More)
