With functions such as lane assist, emergency brake assist and adaptive cruise control, the current generation of automobiles has taken the first steps towards automated driving. But these functions are still relatively ignorant of each other. They can all be carried out in parallel with other driver assistance functions, but here is no planned cooperation. If we intend to construct a partially, highly, or even completely automated vehicle,
cooperation between these systems is imperative. This is no simple task. Among other things, there is no fitting, scalable systems architecture agreed on
in the industry, that would cover all driver assistance functions and integrate them into one fully automated system.
