Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are essential parts for developing the autonomous vehicle concept. They cooperate with different on-board car equipment to make driving safe and comfortable. There are many ways to monitor their behaviour and assess their reliability. The presented solution combines the versatility of applications (it can be used with almost any kind of sensors), low cost (data acquisition using this method requires only a simple electronic circuit) and requires no adjustments of the sensor’s software or hardware. Using this type of analysis, one can determine the device’s family, find any over- and under-voltages that can damage the sensor or even detect two-way CAN communication malfunctions. Since the data acquired is complex (and can be troublesome during processing) – one of the best solutions is to cope with the problem by using a variety of neural networks.
