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.

The implementation of such systems is posing serious challenges 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 offers a collaborative environment where vehicle simulation technology, state-of-the-art software solutions for control system design, traffic simulation, sensor fusion and Driving Simulators are seamlessly connected.

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

The sensor test can be extended to the Driving Simulator via a Sensor Fusion Test, so that ADAS functionalities can be fully and safely evaluated and optimized in a lab environment beforer running any road tests, including driver reaction to the test parameters.
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
