Intelligent Speed Assist and NDS.Live: Join our free webinar!

21. January 2021

With NDS.Live now officially launched, it’s time to focus on the essentials: What is the new standard capable of and how can software providers, map data suppliers, and car manufacturers benefit? Therefore, the NDS Association is starting out the year with a series of free NDS.Live webinars. First up is the topic of Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) and how NDS.Live can help implement this system.

Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) will become mandatory in the EU for passenger cars, vans, busses, and trucks that are newly introduced to market in 2022 and then every new vehicle sold in 2024. ISA systems will support drivers with obeying speed limits and thus require up-to-date map data. ISA systems will need to be able to work with permanent and temporary speed limits, as well as implicit speed limits that are not sign-posted or cannot be recognized by vehicle sensors. Systems like these need full coverage and accurate map data that includes a number of road attributes, signs, regulations, and many more that will complement in-vehicle sensor data. This map data can be brought into the vehicles utilizing NDS.Live.

NDS.Live, the next generation of the NDS standard, follows the principle of a distributed system. It allows driver assistance, navigation, and drive automation systems to pull together map data packages from different NDS.Live Smart Layers, from different data service providers and to then make them available as one comprehensive pool of information. This modular approach ensures much more flexibility. It enables updates of individual data packages at higher rates, e.g. speed limits, while other more static data can be updated less frequently. The modularity of NDS.Live also facilitates a faster evolution of those parts of the NDS.Live specification that will need to evolve at a faster pace as we are moving into Automated Driving, which still has a steep learning curve. And last but not least, the NDS.Live Smart Layers make a step-by-step migration of a system from NDS.Classic map databases to NDS.Live data services possible.
