Adaptive driver assistance systems info enhances automotive applications site

23-10-2015 | Mouser Electronics | Design & Manufacture

Mouser has announced the addition of Adaptive Driver Assistance Systems to
its Automotive Applications site. As part of the company's Applications &
Technologies sites, the Automotive Applications site provides design
engineers with the resources they need to learn about the latest advances in
automotive electronics technologies as well as the newest components from
Mouser for building automotive electronics systems.

The Automotive Applications site now contains more valuable information for
engineers interested in expanding their knowledge about automotive
electronics technologies. The Applications section has been updated to
include information on Adaptive Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), new
automotive electronic safety systems that provide increased driver and
vehicle protection. ADAS enhances the driving experience while providing an
increased level of safety which is expected to significantly reduce
automotive accidents. These systems provide drivers with enhanced safety
features such as blind spot detection, lane departure warning, collision
warning, and tire pressure monitoring. ADAS also provides for limited
autonomous driving features such as adaptive cruise control, parking
assistance, traffic sign recognition, lane change assistance, and collision
avoidance. The new functional block diagram for ADAS includes technical
explanations of each block, along with a list of related products available
for same-day shipping.

The Featured Products section focuses on key products available from Mouser
that speed and enhance the development of automotive electronics systems.
Products include the ON Semiconductor NCV78763 Dual LED Driver for
automotive headlights, Freescale FXTH8715 Tire Pressure Monitoring Mixed
Signal Microcontroller, and AVX CAN000x CAN BUS Varistors designed
specifically for automotive applications.

The Articles section discusses topics relevant to automotive technology,
including the Ethics of Autonomous Vehicles and an article on the
technologies used in driverless cars. All articles offer an area to post
comments and questions to facilitate further discussions on the topic.

Finally, the Technical Resources section lists videos, application notes,
and white papers that discuss device selection and system considerations
when designing automotive electronics systems. The section includes
discussions on ADAS radar, engine control, and more, plus extensive
resources for electric vehicle/hybrid electric vehicle (EV/HEV)
applications.
