“Automotive News reported that there is a new ADAS feature coming from Audi using the powerful zFAS system. The next phase of ADAS safety is that the car is programmed to automatically swerve around an obstacle to avoid collisions.
In order to accomplish such a complicated task, the technology used will have backup systems and sensors in place in case of problems. The new approach will use with the zFAS central controller when it goes into production in two years in the Audi A8.
The zFAS controller incorporates technology form Dephi, NVIDIA Tegra KI and Mobileye.”
From what I recall, the zFAS systems was to deliver autonomous driving. If swerving to avoid objects qualifies we may have a new definition. Perhaps the computing requirements were too high. Interesting that Apple CarPlay gets almost as much attention, although I doubt Audi will wait until 2018 to ship that feature.
