Summary 'Intelligent Vehicle Technologies' covers the growing field of intelligent technologies, from intelligent control systems to intelligent sensors. Systems such as in-car navigation devices and cruise control are already being introduced into modern vehicles, but manufacturers are now racing to develop systems such as 'smart' cruise control, on-vehicle driver information systems, collision avoidance systems, vision enhancement and roadworthiness diagnostics systems. aimed specifically at the automotive industry packed with practical examples and applications in-depth treatment written in a text book style (rather than a theoretical specialist text style).
