Applying Map Databases to Advanced Navigation and Driver Assistance Systems

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  02 October 2001

Navigation map databases have evolved during the last 10 years in coverage, content and accuracy to such a degree that they are being used (and considered) for applications beyond vehicle navigation. For a number of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in Europe and North America, the navigation maps are being enhanced to offer new functions. This will complement dynamic route guidance, with location referencing, descriptions of delays, floating car data and re-routeing, all requiring developments in traffic management, road capacity balancing and routing algorithms.
