Welcome to this installment of EE Classroom on ADAS!
Whether or not you want a self-driving car, there’s no arguing that most drivers need “assistance”, which makes ADAS a formidable technology. But it is also a tricky one involving a unique blend of sensors, microcontrollers, cameras — and a fair amount of regulation, not surprisingly given drivers are being asked to have faith in almost one-and-a-half tons of steel in which are buried hundreds of automotive MCUs.
It’s a new learning curve for many, and this classroom is here to help. Neural network software (and the memory to accommodate it), ADAS sensors, LiDAR, are just some of the technologies that allow a car to “see”. How and why? Start with tutorials here. And while there may never be a final word on safety and security, we’ve got enough words in our basics and beyond to understand the discussions further.
Note: There is no grading here — and no grading on the curve…
