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)
Normally, day-2 embryos show a crosswise arrangement of four cells with three blastomeres lying side by side. Cleavage anomalies include embryos that are characterized by a particular planar constellation of four blastomeres with presumed incomplete cleavage. Since little is known on the developmental fate of such conceptuses, within a 10-month period all(More)
We present a variant of an algorithm of Oliver Atkin for counting the number of points on an elliptic curve over a nite eld. We describe an implementation of this algorithm for prime elds. We report on the use of this implementation to count the number of points on a curve over IFp, where p is a 375-digit prime.
The Stadtpilot project aims at autonomous driving on Braunschweig's inner city ring road. For this purpose, an autonomous vehicle called “Leonie” has been developed. In October 2010, after two years of research, “Leonie's” abilities were presented in a public demonstration. This vehicle is one of the first worldwide to show the(More)
This paper presents a functional system architecture for an “autonomous vehicle” in the sense of amodular building block system. It is developed in a topdown approach based on the definition of the functional requirements for an autonomous vehicle and explicitly combines perception-based and localization-based approaches. Both the definition and the(More)
For the design and test of functional modules of an automated vehicle, it is essential to define interfaces. While interfaces on the perception side, like object lists, point clouds or occupancy grids, are to a certain degree settled already, they are quite vague in the consecutive steps of context modeling and in particular on the side of driving(More)
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) require an understanding of complex traffic situations. Such complexity can be handled by decomposing traffic situations into analyzeable subsets called Situation Aspects (SA). Since lots of situation analyzing problems result in classification tasks, the Scenario Based Random Forest (SBRF) algorithm is introduced(More)
