The market more and more often requires a visual interface for parking assistance systems. To offer a high performance and cost effective combination of acoustic and visual aid, we have developed for the OEM environment Intelligent Sensors designed to be easily integrated with any third party Driver Information System/Infotainment System (DIS/IS).
All the measurements and calculations are made directly at sensor level. The intelligent digital sensor performs target detection, evaluation and assignment to a warning zone.There is no longer a need for a specialised and dedicated ECU collecting and transferring the data. Once the infotainment or BCM system is enabled, the collected information is ready to be displayed directly on HMI interfaces.
Intelligent sensors become an option readily available that vehicle manufacturers can decide to offer as part of an integrated solution when and where they want following the different market needs.
Main features and benefits
|Can be a useful complement for vehicles already equipped with rear view cameras, providing distance indications through the acoustic signals in addition to the visual aid|
|Easy interaction between the sensors and the other driver assistance systems through LIN bus communication protocol|
|Easy integration, no or hardly any hardware change required on BCM or infotainment system|
|Implementation of engineering standard by DIS/IS supplier ensures low integration effort and optimized, re-usable DIS/IS software|
|Availability of low range applications (for parking assistance systems) and long range applications (for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems – slot measurement, automatic and semi-automatic parking)|
|Can be installed flush mount or as clip through a sandwich type solution|
|The sensor at every acquisition performs a self check and a noise filtering. Diagnostic capability to read out the echo signal|
|Fully compliant with ISO9001, ISO17386 (MALSO) and with European homologations|
