ADAS Control Unit (ADAS ECU)

The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) control unit, equipped with a high-performance CPU and numerous communication interfaces such as CAN, LIN, and Ethernet, can simultaneously process information and control algorithms from vehicle sensors and cameras. As an independent unit, it facilitates the expansion and adoption of driver assistance and preventive safety functions.

AD Control Unit (AD ECU)

In addition to the control CPU used in ADAS-ECU, AD ECU is equipped with a high-performance CPU for processing large amounts of data for image processing and various communication processes, allowing signal processing from vehicle sensors, data fusion, and control algorithms to be processed by this component alone.

CAN, Ethernet, and LIN communication ports are available for information input/output and interactive control with other components.

AD: Autonomous Driving

Map Positioning Unit (MPU)

The map position unit generates information around the vehicle based on the vehicle’s position. The data is supplied by satellite positioning, inertial navigation, and others to provide highly accurate lane-level navigation for automatic driving ECU and ADAS ECU to support integrated vehicle control. In addition, OTA (Over The Air) enables wireless, automated map updating.
