The system identifies indications of driver fatigue and distraction and ensures the driver’s alertness by triggering an alarm signal or, depending on the vehicle developer’s preference, taking automatic safety measures such as increasing the distance to the vehicle in front through the Adaptive Cruise Control system. In addition, the system contains a driver identification feature that enables vehicle developers to implement a high level of personalization and comfort in that it continuously optimizes the vehicle system and adapts the system’s behavior to the individual driver. As the driver takes seat, the system adjusts several settings, for instance, seat position, interior temperature, infotainment volume, preferred radio stations and music program. The same sensor that monitors the driver’s alertness is also controlling his gestures, enabling gesture control schemes by means of simple, natural hand movements, reducing distraction and minimizing the cognitive load of the driver’s brain. Eyesight Technologies ftp://presse.hbi.de/pub/eyeSight/ Stress and trigger module tests ECUs’ CAN FD communication Goepel electronic’s basicCAN6153.STM is a stress and trigger module for CAN FD, specifically capable of manipulating CAN / CAN FD communication for accurate protocol tests. The functionality is available as an extended option for the Series 61 communication controllers. The basicCAN6153.STM interferes with CAN / CAN FD messages resulting in the generation of error frames. In addition, external resources can be controlled via trigger output to specific frames or triggered via a trigger input. Based on the Series 61, the CAN-IP has been extended by corresponding disturbance functions. The parameterization is carried out using the tried and tested Goepel electronic API allowing the module to be integrated into user-specific solutions. The disturbance function of the basicCAN6153.STM supports CAN FD as well as the standard CAN protocol on one of four configurable ports. Ethernet is the host interface; alternatively PXI, PCI and USB are offered. Goepel electronic www.goepel.com Programmable Hall sensor is optimized for safety-critical applications Allegro Microsystems Europe has launched a dual-chip programmable Hall sensor IC for safety critical applications in automotive environments. Available in a 14-pin TSSOP SMD package, the A1346 features full chip/die redundancy for the applications as well comprehensive diagnosis functions without interrupting the application. In cases when both chips deliver inconsistent data, the controller can determine which chip’s output data are correct. The A1346 contains two high-precision, programmable. Linear Hall effect sensors with open drain output. An external programming option ensures flexible data path configuration to meet customer-specific output signals derived from a single magnetic input signal. Each one of these monolithic BiCMOS ICs offers a system-on-chip configuration with a Hall element, precise temperature compensation, a small-signal amplifier, a patented dynamic offset suppression, enhanced output linearization and sweeping diagnosis.
