Intermap & Visteon: Map-linked adaptive front-lighting

Intermap Technologies, a leading global 3D mapping company, today announced completion of the initial stage of a joint development agreement with Visteon Corp., an internationally recognized automotive technology developer and supplier.

The focus of the agreement is to develop a predictive adaptive front-lighting system (Predictive AFS) for passenger vehicles. The advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), which automatically turns a vehicle’s headlights into an upcoming bend in the road, has been successfully road tested in Germany.

As part of the agreement, Intermap provided Visteon with the Company’s NEXTMap® 3D road geometry data for a specified test area in Germany. The Predictive AFS uses a small map extract of the road ahead of the current vehicle position known as ADAS Horizon (AH).

Intermap developed a module that prepares the AH data and streams the data to the vehicle bus. For presentation and test purposes, Intermap developed a NEXTMap 3D Horizon, that virtually extends the driver’s knowledge of the road ahead by visualizing the AH data sent to the vehicle’s CAN bus in the ADASIS protocol format.
