Abstract

The paper introduces a new driver assistance system within the BMW ConnectedDrive concept. Based on the driving dynamics and navigation data, the Dynamic Pass Prediction (DPP) indicates road sections that are not safe for overtaking. By reducing the enormous driver workload before overtaking situations a safer and more comfortable driving is achieved without losing driving pleasure. This example shows how driver assistance systems can take advantage of navigation data especially if it contains curve and sign information. With the quality of navigation data available today the DPP function is feasible. Taking driving parameters into account, a situation adaptive recommendation provides even more benefit for the customer.
