AAA Research examines Driver Behavior while using Adaptive Cruise Control

article imageThe AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has released a new report on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which support drivers with some driving tasks. However, drivers may lack appropriate knowledge about ADAS, which can translate to misusing or mistrusting the technologies, especially in situations beyond the capability of the system.

ADMA-Micro: GeneSys' smallest GNSS-aided inertial Navigation System, engineered for maximum Performance

article imageThe ADMA-Micro is GeneSys' smallest GNSS-aided inertial measurement unit (IMU). It measures the 3D position in real-time within an accuracy of 0.01 m (1 ). Based on accelerations and rotation rates, which are also measured, velocities, position angles and heading can be determined. The use of MEMS gyros and accelerometers makes it possible to create a highly accurate, compact and lightweight device. Different structural shape allows choosing the right design for a variety of applications, including vehicles and VRUs (Vulnerable Road Users), construction machines, UGVs (Unmanned Ground Vehicles) and robotics.

Dis­trac­tion due to Vehicle Ope­ra­tion

article imageFunctions of vehicle operation, such as windscreen wiper settings, are increasingly being implemented digitally and operated via touch displays. They integrate many functions. However their operation distracts from the driving task. In a study, the UDV therefore investigated how in-vehicle HMI should be designed to be as least distractive as possible.
