Mouser Electronics, Inc. has announced the exciting addition of Adaptive Driver Assistance Systems to its Automotive Applications site. As part of Mouser’s Applications & Technologies sites, the Automotive Applications site provides design engineers with the resources they need to learn about the latest advances in automotive electronics technologies as well as the newest components from Mouser Electronics for building automotive electronics systems.
The Automotive Applications site, available on Mouser.com, contains even more valuable information for engineers interested in expanding their knowledge about automotive electronics technologies. The Applications section has been updated to include information on Adaptive Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), new automotive electronic safety systems that provide increased driver and vehicle protection. ADAS enhances the driving experience while providing an increased level of safety which is expected to significantly reduce automotive accidents. These systems provide drivers with enhanced safety features such as blind spot detection, lane departure warning, collision warning, and tire pressure monitoring. ADAS also provides for limited autonomous driving features such as adaptive cruise control, parking assistance, traffic sign recognition, lane change assistance, and collision avoidance. The new functional block diagram for ADAS includes technical explanations of each block, along with a list of related products available for same-day shipping from Mouser.com.
The Featured Products section focuses on key products available from Mouser that speed and enhance the development of automotive electronics systems. Products include the ON Semiconductor NCV78763 Dual LED Driver for automotive headlights, Freescale FXTH8715 Tire Pressure Monitoring Mixed Signal Microcontroller, and AVX CAN000x CAN BUS Varistors designed specifically for automotive applications.
The Articles section discusses topics relevant to automotive technology, including the Ethics of Autonomous Vehicles and an article on the technologies used in driverless cars. All articles offer an area to post comments and questions to facilitate further discussions on the topic.
Finally, the Technical Resources section lists videos, application notes, and white papers that discuss device selection and system considerations when designing automotive electronics systems. The section includes discussions on ADAS radar, engine control, and more, plus extensive resources for electric vehicle/hybrid electric vehicle (EV/HEV) applications.
