Digital Platform for Vehicle Dynamics
Water – Snow & Ice – Pothole – GravelThe virtual sensors analyze existing in-Vehicle information and provide alerts to the vehicle, enabling OEMs to introduce new vehicle safety features.
Virtual sensors detecting grip on various surfaces
Detection of snow and ice, differentiated from aquaplaning conditions.
Recognizes potholes as well as low-quality roads to provide driver-behavior recommendations.
Identifies low-grip conditions upon gravel.
DAI virtual sensor for Wet Road detection
Digital Aquaplaning Information (DAI) is the first virtual sensor developed within the EDP platform: it detects dangerous wet road conditions and aquaplaning.
The virtual sensor evaluates wet road conditions, works with any tire and can be easily integrated in the vehicle without the need of additional physical sensors.
DAI delivers Level 1, 2, and 3 alert outputs to the vehicle. It is fully configurable with OEMs, activating new vehicle safety features like automatic adjustment of adaptive cruise control speed and distance according to the alert level.
