MAPS&ADAS and ADASIS Forum pave way for standardised interface
Creation date: 12 January 2006
A demonstration of the first results of the IP PReVENT subproject MAPS&ADAS to the ADASIS Forum Members on 15 December 2005 at Honda in Offenbach presented the achievements of the project in 2005. With 35 participants representing 24 organisations, this successful event showed the increasing interest of the leading European automotive industry in the ADAS Horizon concept, and the benefit of using digital maps as a predictive sensor to enable or enhance ADAS applications.
The morning session focused on the presentation of activities and results starting with an introduction of MAPS&ADAS and the ADASIS Forum by Vincent Blervaque (ERTICO, MAPS&ADAS Project Leader and ADASIS Forum Coordinator). Klaus Mezger (DaimlerChrysler) followed, presenting the revised version of the ADAS Interface Data Model and Functional Architecture and very promising results from the ADAS Interface test activities performed within MAPS&ADAS in November 2005. Maria Perchina (Navigon) presented the revised version of ADAS Interface Specifications prepared jointly with Johannes Angenvoort (Navigon), which will be submitted to standardisation bodies in 2006. Finally, Leo Beuk (Siemens VDO) introduced the new ADASIS Forum Working Group dedicated to Data Protocol Interoperability to support implementation.
In the afternoon, demonstrations were organised by MAPS&ADAS partners to highlight the maturity of the ADAS Horizon concept leading to near future market introduction. The demonstration session included live presentations with in-vehicle applications and prototype implementation.

In order to demonstrate the interoperability of modules from different partners, Navigon, NAVTEQ and Siemens VDO presented a prototype implementation of the standardised ADAS Interface by feeding their ADAS Horizon receiver modules in parallel with one common map horizon data stream via the same in-vehicle CAN bus.

The ADASIS Forum acting as the MAPS&ADAS User Forum is a self-funded industry initiative launched in 2002 and coordinated by ERTICO, aiming at supporting and promoting the development and the implementation of a standardised interface between ADAS applications and digital map content. The ADASIS Forum is composed of 26 Members from vehicle manufacturers, ADAS suppliers, navigation system suppliers and map providers.
