The MPE specification, according to NAVTEQ, outlines optimal deployment of the GPS, microprocessor, memory and all required software including map-matching. It also provides guidelines for advanced driver assistance system or ADAS, its Interface Specification and the Controller Area Network (CAN) or CAN bus interfaces which you will hear more about in this podcast. The Map and Positioning Engine also provides specification for NAVTEQ's patented Electronic Horizon algorithms, which are essential to predictive road information for ADAS, that searches for and interprets attributes on the road ahead.
We will be talking today with Bob Denaro, vice president of ADAS for NAVTEQ.
