The ADCU is a reliable multifunctional processing platform that is eminently suited for applications in highly automated driving . It integrates selected hardware and software to monitor the vehicle’s movement and control its route during operation. In addition, the ADCU uses incoming signals from onboard sensors and other information to generate an environment model.
Using this information, its route-planning algorithms determine a route that is optimal in terms of environment, safety, and convenience. In addition, the algorithms coordinate actuators in the vehicle, such as brakes, chassis, and steering.
