NDS.Live: The Navigation of Tomorrow

The Proof of Concept demo solutions align strategically with NDS.Live, the next-generation global standard for map data in the automotive ecosystem. This highly connected system utilizes high-resolution map information and real-time vehicle and environmental data from the cloud, ensuring safe journeys for drivers and passengers. It supports advanced driver assistance, intelligent e-mobility, and autonomous driving.

NDS.Live facilitates the use of cloud-connected dynamic data, addressing the significant data volume of map information. Its modular architecture allows scaling across various usage scenarios in the car, the edge network (5G), and the cloud.

NDS.Live and Goodyear SightLine: Enhancing Safety

In collaboration with The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Intellias presented a Proof of Concept demonstrating how NDS.Live and Goodyear SightLine can work together. By incorporating road characteristics and vehicle-specific conditions, the project aims to enhance navigation and driver assistance precision. Goodyear SightLine introduces intelligence technologies that enable seamless, safe, and reliable mobility by accurately analyzing tire conditions and weather factors to predict hazardous areas.

Traditional navigation maps typically provide basic data on roads and terrain. However, additional information, such as braking distance and safe speed variations based on weather conditions or tire wear, is crucial for safety.

NDS.Live and AUTOSAR: Dynamic Data for Functional Safety

As an AUTOSAR Associate Partner, Intellias develops future-proof software architectures and components, leveraging a comprehensive understanding of engineering processes and the entire software development lifecycle.

The integration of NDS.Live with the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform was a key focus. This integration showcases the seamless operation across diverse platforms and vendors, emphasizing the benefits of standardization and interoperability. During the NDS conference, Intellias demonstrated how the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform application could communicate with NDS.Live Smart Layer services and process speed limits. The high-bandwidth protocol support of the AUTOSAR Platform enhances its ability to manage NDS.Live’s data exchanges efficiently.

Additionally, the presentation highlighted how high-performance computing and real-time capabilities make the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform ideal for integrating with NDS.Live’s frequently updated map services, thereby boosting functional safety through real-time map updates for continuously informed applications.
