ADAS & Autonomous Vehicles

Test your algorithms and automatic systems safely and collaboratively and validate ADAS functions by integrating software and hardware sensors.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are developed to automate, adapt and enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving. While originally invented to reduce the risk of injuries during a crash, most new vehicles now include many of these systems that are designed to help avoid accidents altogether. In these instances the driver is alerted to potential problems, or collisions are avoided entirely by implementing safeguards and, in some cases, assuming control of the vehicle.

How to implement these systems poses a serious challenge to the automotive industry. These include:
  • Complexity and high development costs
  • Compliance with multiple industry guidelines and regulations
  • Influence of environmental factors
  • Effort in testing and validation
VI-grade’s collaborative environment addresses this challenge by seamlessly connecting control system design, traffic simulation, sensor fusion and Driving Simulators.

Common sensors like cameras, radar, and lidars can be modelled into the traffic simulation environment together with the car to verify common ADAS functions such as automated braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning, or can be hardware tested at the sub-system and system level.

The sensor test can be extended to the Driving Simulator via a Sensor Fusion Test. ADAS functionalities, including driver reaction to the test parameters, can be fully and safely evaluated and optimized in a lab environment before running any road tests.
A typical Driving Simulator configuration for ADAS studies consists of:
  • A STATIC or full-motion DYNAMIC Simulator – Most VI-grade customers have both to test and tune different types of systems 
  • A cockpit from a real car, which helps increase realism and immersion of the driving experience
  • Active systems like belts, seat, brake and shakers that give the drivers additional cues
  • Control systems, sensors and other devices can also be added both as Software-in-the-Loop or Hardware-in-the-Loop
