ADAS & Autonomous Driving


Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) form the foundation of tomorrow’s securely connected, fully automated cars - helping to ensure every journey we make is relaxing and safe.

ADAS towards self-driving

Sensing the car's environment is a key ingredient of ADAS and the self-driving car. Ensuring that each vehicle has the highest level of security against unwanted attacks is also of utmost importance. By providing the car with state-of-the-art eyes and ears, and securely connecting it internally and externally, NXP® is helping make this a reality.

  • Automotive radar Offering both long- and mid-range functionality automotive radar can constantly sense the distance between vehicles in real-time, improving driving efficiency and safety with enhanced collision-avoidance and emergency braking systems.
  • Vision systems Surround view camera systems already make maneuvering much easier and safer, but vision systems can also enable features such as traffic sign recognition.
  • Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication By having cars ‘talk’ to each other we can reduce the risk of accidents and streamline road traffic, reducing costs and CO2 emissions.
  • Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication Communicating with the wider world via Intelligent Transport Systems allows connected cars to adapt to changing road conditions, improving safety and efficiency.
  • Remote car management Interact with your car securely to control access, lighting, heating and other key functions from a distance.
