Basic ADAS safety features and lower levels of semi-automated driving rely on sensors to scan and interpret the environment around the vehicle in real time.
Higher levels of vehicle autonomy, such as Level 2 & 3 self-driving, rely on highly-accurate location data to support safe navigation in all conditions, with minimal or no human input.
In the latest addition to our Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) Essentials training course, we explain the principles of automated vehicle localisation – in other words, the process by which a vehicle can determine its precise, geographical location on the Earth at any given time.
The topics covered in this training module include:
- The basic operating principles of GNSS, its limitations and how this system’s accuracy is improved
- How the vehicle’s location tracking can be maintained even if there is no GNSS signal
- How the vehicle fuses various sensors and connectivity systems to further increase location accuracy precision
By learning the principles of localisation, we can be confident in our understanding of the broader automated vehicle ecosystem, which is already bringing about remarkable changes to the way cars operate.
This module will be the latest addition to our growing library of over 350 technical training videos, covering the following key areas:
Electrical | Engine | Chassis | Drivetrain | Driver Assist
HVAC | Diagnostics | Servicing | Hybrid & Electric Vehicles
