Benchmarking advanced emergency brake systems

Rear-end collisions are the most common types of accidents. The causes range from inattentiveness when the car in front slows or stops; distractions such as mobile phones, eating or adjusting the radio; poor visibility; inadequate distance etc. While most rear-end collisions in city traffic mostly result in minor vehicle damage, collisions on the motorway often result in serious or fatal injuries. ADAC, Europe’s largest motoring organisation, has conducted extensive research into advanced emerge...

LIDAR Mobile Mapping

            OxTS’s RT3002 and Riegl’s Q120 scanner are perfect for cost effective mobile mapping applications. Mobile mapping, where a 2D LIDAR is fitted to a vehicle, is a very efficient method of surveying. An inertial and GPS navigation system, like the RT3002, is an essential part of a mobile mapping system. In this setup, the Q120 was fitted to a truck with the RT3002. As the truck is driven the laser scans the view out of the side of the truck. By driving up a...
