Default BMW AMULETT Sysyem



Quote:
BMW Group Research and Technology, in partnership with the main German research institutes, has currently developed a system that can assist motorists handle pedestrians that suddenly appear from between two parked cars. AMULETT, the name of the research project which is a German acronym for ‘Active mobile accident avoidance and mitigation of accident effects through cooperative data acquisition and tracking technology’ has come up with what they call a Car-2-X Communication.

The system involves vehicles communicating with radio transponders that are carried by people for personal safety purposes. The sensor systems between the car and the transponder reveal and recognize even pedestrians that are hidden from view. The three-year venture has been funded by the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology.

The other participants include Continental Safety Engineering International GmbH, the Fraunhofer Institute for Ingtegrated Circuits, the Institute for High Frequency Engineering at Munich’s Technical University, and ZENTEC GmbH. At the conclusion of the project, set on May 6 this year, the results of AMULETT will be publicly unveiled.

The project, which was targeted at enhancing the safety of pedestrians, involved the investigation of the possibilities of Car-2-X Communication. With this in mind the researchers linked up independent on-board systems for driving environment evaluation with interface between the car and a transponder carried by a person on the road for personal safety purposes.

Aided by this cooperative sensor technology, the car sends and receives data with the Amulett, which works like a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and could be built into common things like schoolbag or a mobile phone in the near future. When the transponder receives an interrogation signal from the vehicle it immediately transmits an identification message which enables its position to be locked on and identify the carrier as a road user who is at risk.

The system works effectively even when the person carrying the transponder is not visible from the driver at the moment of danger. To prevent the carrier being linked to a specific transponder, in compliance with data protection laws, the Amulett identifies itself through a code that is randomly changing. This will guarantee that the user’s identity is kept anonymous while maintaining the sensor’s data prediction uncompromised.

Electromagnetic waves are identified by the test car via a multi-antenna system in the frequency range of 2.4 GHz, with a signal processing unit determining the angle of arrival and identification.

The signal’s travel time between interrogation from the car and response from the transponder determines the distance of the pedestrian. Based on the data received, the system calculates the level of danger and alerts the driver correspondingly. If the driver, for whatever reason, fails to respond, extra precautionary measures can be employed to prevent the impending accident from happening or minimizing its consequences.

Thus, emergency braking might find its way into this system before long. With the Amulett, pedestrian-vehicle data has reached a new level of precision and brings the issue of traffic safety more than a step forward. The current system in the BMW Group Research and Technology test vehicle provides the driver feedback through a head-up display which was designed so that the driver is not alarmed, but can make intuitive interpretations leading to appropriate actions.

The focus of ongoing research is how to exclude false alarms generated by carriers inside an oncoming car or with the ability of the system to handle multiple carriers like in city driving situations.

Good thing they plan to have it react automatically. We're talking about the average driver who doesn't know what to do when their oil light comes on.

"Hey, honey.. this little yellow light just popped up on the windsheild." *ba-bump* "I wonder what it means??"

Good thing they're making this. Each time I have run over a small child, I had not seen the little bastard darting out into the street. Now I can pick my nose, text, drink coffee, drive, and not worry.

Also, as a car jacker, this will help me immensely, as I will be able to jump out in front of a brand new BMW without having to worry about being run over. It will screech to a halt, stun the driver, and give me the opportunity to steal the car at gunpoint.

Pedestrians getting run over must be a huge problem in Europe. It probably happens so much that its not even really news anymore, like gang violence in the south side of Chicago.

I would not give myself that much credit. There are others that care far more than me. I am merely a passerby throwing out my 0.02 cents. Sometimes I make sense, other times, I do not. Take it for whats its worth to you. That may mean less than nothing, or that may mean something useful. Its completely up to you to decide. Thats the beauty of freedom of speech. I can say what I want, and you can choose to completely ignore me. Its your right!

I love this country for the length of time we have left to enjoy it.

Fair enough. I have just grown sick of all sort of political comment. I am politicaled-out for now. The Bimmer thing is just stupid, whether it came from retarded CA legislation or not.

I will concede then. As I am in the same boat. I have never been so saturated with disgust in the whole political horizon. I think thats where my comment must have stemmed. I see nothing but bad things coming out of Washington and a country that embraces them. My comment was less than useful, so in the spirit of a non political rant. I should have bit my tongue.
