With the advent of intelligent vehicle (IV) systems, the age of the electronic co-pilot in road vehicles is upon us. These cutting-edge systems can monitor nearby traffic, sense a vehicle's movement, and even alert the driver to hit the brakes to avoid a collision. This groundbreaking resource offers professionals a comprehensive overview of IV systems aimed at providing enhanced safety, greater productivity, and less stress for drivers. Rather than bogging down readers 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. Helping engineers apply their skills to this emerging field, this practical reference offers a thorough understanding of how electronics and electronic systems must work within automobiles, heavy trucks, and buses. The book examines real-world products, along with practical issues, including cost, market aspects, driver interface, and user acceptance.
