Intelligent Vehicle Technology and Trends

This book, a groundbreaking resource, offers professionals a comprehensive overview of cutting-edge intelligent vehicle (IV) systems aimed at providing enhanced safety, greater productivity, and less stress for drivers. Rather than bogging readers down with difficult technical discourse, this easy to understand book presents a conceptual and realistic view of how IV systems work and the issues involved with their introduction into road vehicles. Offering a thorough understanding of how electronics and electronic systems must work within automobiles, heavy trucks and buses, the book examines: (1) real world IV products, along with practical issues, including cost, market aspects, driver interface, and user acceptance; (2) current systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and forward collision mitigation; (3) the next wave of driver assist systems, including pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assistance, and seamless information flow between road vehicle and the road infrastructure; (4) traffic assist systems, in which intelligent vehicles automatically coordinate their movements to improve traffic flow; and (5) a view of the future of this rapidly evolving technological area.
