Autonomous safety systems


“Many technological developments must be evaluated and matured before full automated driving can be realised” Depending on the state of the technol-


ogy and the degree of automated driving capability, the driver will be uninhib- ited and more capable of communicat- ing with the external world. This may include communicating directly through a personal mobile device or an on-board Human Machine Interface (HMI) system designed to account for various driving conditions. The system may also manage driver workload to ensure safe driving. Most experts believe that some elements of such a high-level vision will be imple- mented as early as 2020 with full automa- tion becoming a reality by 2025.


THE ROAD AHEAD Many technological developments must be thoroughly evaluated and matured before full automated driving can be realised. As these improvements are introduced over the next few years, driv- ers will gradually be exposed to elements


To help drivers stay safely connected while driving, Delphi has applied its systems integration expertise by merging the vehicle’s safety systems with its infotainment systems


of autonomy in their everyday driving tasks. Many consumers are already aware of, and accept, adaptive cruise control and collision imminent braking. In fact, the EuroNCAP will require automakers to equip vehicles with automated emer- gency braking in passenger cars starting in 2014 to meet the coveted 5-star safety rating. According to a recent J.D. Powers


and Associates survey, drivers over- whelmingly choose seamless, but safe and affordable, in-car smartphone sup- port when asked which technology they want most from their vehicle. It is the combination of brought-in capabilities, such as smart phones, and the built-in convenience of traditionally embedded systems that will make the user experi- ence truly seamless. A recent study from Cisco indicates
