EB (Elektrobit) introduces new functions for its EB Assist Electronic Horizon Solution, offering more flexibility for carmakers and suppliers implementing predictive driver assistance systems. The new version enables them to use digital map information across car lines and model configurations, without a need for having an active navigation system.
EB’s electronic horizon is a key element for developing predictive driver assistance systems, providing essential map data for features such as night vision, curve speed warning and traffic sign detection or range determination for e-cars. Electronic horizon information plays a major role in the development of predictive driving features and will do so even more in the future as carmakers continue to introduce automated driving features.
EB is one of the few automotive suppliers offering an electronic horizon solution that combines both navigation software and driver assistance systems software, thus offering a seamless experience from one single source. EB’s electronic horizon features the most detailed road geometry data currently in the market. It offers the same precision as data used for highway engineering and thus allows for smoother and more accurate driver assistance functions, like predictive curve lighting and range determination. The EB Assist Electronic Horizon Solution is also able to deliver this information both to EB’s own driver assistance software development environment and to a wide range of other driver assistance platforms from various suppliers. In addition, electronic horizon data can be visualized on EB’s new driver assistance testing tool, the EB Assist Car Data Recorder.
“With the EB Assist Electronic Horizon Solution and our driver assistance software development framework, we are offering a unique tool kit for industry-leading predictive driver assistance systems from one single source,” explains EB Automotive’s Driver Assistance Director Dr. Rolf Dubitzky.
Major carmakers have already adopted EB Assist Electronic Horizon Solution for a wide range of models. Cars already on the road with EB’s solution feature driver assistance functions such as range determination and traffic sign detection. Furthermore, EB’s electronic horizon is used in various R&D projects like eco-driving functionalities for cars and trucks.
The electronic horizon forms the basis for numerous predictive driver assistance features. It provides driver assistance systems with detailed map and GPS data about the route ahead, e.g. speed limits, road curvatures and topographic information. Electronic horizon data supports features like predictive curve light, adaptive cruise control and range determination.
“The importance of the electronic horizon will continue to grow in future years,” says Markus Schupfner, executive vice president for operations at EB Automotive. “Together with real-time information about traffic, weather and road conditions, the electronic horizon is not only the basis for autonomous driving but also for the optimal use of e-mobility.”

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
