Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Highly Automated Driving Systems (HAD) are among the most important megatrends in the automotive development. Accompanying this one big question arises: do all assisted and automated driving cars drive the same or will vehicle manufacturers be able to differentiate themselves with DNA of their own? And - especially for a sportscar-manufacturer like Porsche – how can ADAS and HAD impart typical attributes like driving fun and sportiness, Figure 1? In order to achieve this, clear driving characteristic goals (from a customer’s point of view) must be defined and the system requirements for ADAS and HAD (including all components like sensors, ECU’s and actors) shall be derived from this. However, what are driving and brand characteristics in the context of assisted and automated driving? And how can those be realized in the development? Porsche has addressed this question together with the University of Applied Sciences Kempten and MdynamiX.
