Current research on advanced driver-assistance systems (ADASs) addresses the concept of highly automated driving to further increase traffic safety and comfort. In such systems, different maneuvers can automatically be executed that are still under the control of the driver. To achieve this aim, the task of assessing a traffic situation and automatically(More)
Mechanisms of adenosine (ADO) protection of reperfused myocardium are not fully understood. We tested the hypothesis that ADO (0.1 mM) alleviates ventricular stunning by ADO A(1)-receptor stimulation combined with purine metabolic enhancements. Langendorff guinea pig hearts were stunned at constant left ventricular end-diastolic pressure by low-flow(More)
Fibroblasts are widely distributed cells and are responsible for the deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) components but also secrete ECM-degrading matrix metalloproteases. A finely balanced equilibrium between deposition and degradation of ECM is essential for structural integrity of tissues. In the past, fibroblasts have typically been understood as a(More)
The increasing complexity of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) requires new design strategies in order to provide the necessary reliability for safety-related applications. In this paper, the connection of several perception modules to a modular ADAS is proposed. The benefits of such an approach are analyzed on the example of a vision and radar(More)
Aims. Several mechanisms can be involved in the development of exercise intolerance in patients with heart failure despite normal left ventricular ejection fraction (HFNEF) and may include impairment of left ventricular (LV) stiffness. We therefore investigated the influence of LV stiffness, determined by pressure-volume loop analysis obtained by(More)
Predictive route data are focused by many vehicle manufacturers. The possible information at this juncture is essential to evaluate complex scenarios in urban areas and allow - in combination with active safety systems - reduced probability of crash situations. The presentation illustrates the need of route data, evaluates possible application scenarios and(More)
The protection of pedestrians from injuries by accidental collision is a primary focus of the automotive industry and of government legislation [1]. In this area, scientists and developers are faced with a multitude of requirements. Complex scenes are to be analyzed. The wide spectrum of where pedestrians and cyclists appear on the road, weather, and light(More)
