The virtual sensor DAI – Digital Aquaplaning Information
thanks to proprietary predictive algorithms, processes the correction to suggest to the driver to secure the driving on wet asphalt through a three levels warning system within the HMI.
DAI is ready for all vehicles, even the autonomous and electric ones.
It does not need additional sensors.
DAI, thanks to the information detected by the CAN network of the vehicle and thanks to proprietary algorithms, recognizes and discriminates the presence of various levels of water on the road surface, working regardless the tire type, vehicle type, mass and speed.
In this way, we can understand when the vehicle is on a wet road, when it is in danger and when it has lost control.
When aquaplaning conditions are detected, the DAI instantly activates the AIS, restoring the adherence and the control of the vehicle.
The DAI is ready to be integrated with the 5G network and infrastructure technology of the Smart Cities. The discriminated and processed information by the DAI can be conveyed through 5G to warn vehicles in the vicinity of possible danger conditions from wet road.
Not only that: the DAI can interact with interconnected infrastructures by reading the level of long-term deterioration of the road surface. The DAI allows the creation of a dedicated Cloud through which collect and share data to warn both vehicle and infrastructure on dangerous road conditions.
The DAI adds new functionalities to the vehicle such as the development of a Wet Cruise Control, disabling assisted driving, Wet Mode Real Time Information and other features under evaluation.
In addition, sensor capabilities can be implemented, through discrimination of different road conditions. Under development: detection on asphalt particular condition with ice, snow, soil, gravel, grass.
INSIDE THE VEHICLE
DAI will inform the driver through a warning system visible within the Cluster, which can be modulated according to the needs of the car maker.
DAI, thanks to predictive proprietary algorithms based on the dynamics data available in the vehicle network, turns on 3 alerts: “Warning! Wet Road”, “Danger! Wet Road”, “Alert! Aquaplaning”.
DAI detected information can be shared in the Cloud over the 5G network. Sharing is crucial for improving road
safety: alerting nearby vehicles connected to the network to prevent dangerous situations and collect data on the aquaplaning phenomenon.
DAI can also estimate the asphalt condition, reading its long term deterioration. Moreover, the information processed by DAI can be used by the car to add new safety features such as speed optimization for autonomous vehicle.
DAI will inform the driver through a system of warning lights that are activated in the vehicle Cluster.
Depending on the amount of water on the asphalt detected, DAI turns on 3 different icons:
The display of the warning system can be modulated and customized according to the needs of the OEM.
The virtual sensor for your safety
WARNING & NEW FUNCTIONALITIES
DAI analyzes the safety level of your driving
in relation to the water layers on the asphalt, warning the driver in case of danger with different alerts in the HMI. It optimizes the real time speed, ensuring maximum efficiency for all kind of vehicles. DAI discriminates when the vehicle is on a wet road, when it is in danger and when it has lost control. DAI allows new real time functionalities: wet mode activation, assisted driving deactivation, adaptive wet cruise control.
