Safespot local dynamic maps: Context-dependent view generation of a platform's state & environment
TNO Industrie en Techniek
Increased availability of sensing, communication and computing equipment in modern vehicles presents opportunities for a generational advance in driver assistance and safety functions. However, the growth in the volume and complexity of data also presents challenges for its collection, maintenance and distribution. The SAFESPOT Local Dynamic Map (LDM) contains a structured model of the world. It acts as an interface between sensing modules and the safety applications. It enables applications to extract context-dependent views of the environment and the platform's state. These unique views differ in spatio-temporal scale, as well as the objects, attributes and relationships they contain. The ability to extract various views from a LDM is seen as an important tool in the development of multiple, advanced applications on a single platform.
