Accurate tyre slip measurements even in wet conditions — thanks to the new RT-Split

Our new RT-Split is a small and lightweight wheel-mounted sensor that measures tyre slip-angle in all weather conditions with an accuracy of up to 0.15° at 50 km/h. The system comprises an accurate IMU module that is mounted on the desired wheel, while a separate CPU module that houses the necessary processors and GNSS receiver remains inside the car. As the RT-Split uses GNSS and inertial technology (rather than optical input), its measurements are equally accurate on dry, wet or even loose sur...

New RT Range S—small box, big capability

The new RT‑Range ‘S’ from OxTS is a direct replacement for our existing RT‑Range multi-vehicle tracking system—but in a housing that is nearly 90% smaller than previous models. However, despite the huge reduction in size and weight the new RT‑Range S retains every feature that has made previous RT‑Range models a globally recognised tool in the test and validation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Measuring just 234 × 76 × 120 mm and offering up to 2 cm position accuracy as well as a...

Two-month test of xNAV200 proves its capabilities

Size has no bearing on ability as our latest test of the xNAV200 proves. The xNAV200 is our smallest and lightest GPS-aided inertial navigation device—designed for UAV applications that require sub-metre accuracy, but at a cost-effective price. In this real-world evaluation we used an xNAV200 to survey the same road-trip over a two-month period, taking in many conditions from open-sky motorways to narrow tree-lined roads. We then compared the data sets to a reference line to evaluate the lateral...

Improved ABD robot interface for EuroNCAP AEB testing

The RT-Range is ideal for performing EuroNCAP autonomous emergency braking (AEB) tests with high precision and maximum reliability. With our latest software, it is now easier than ever to perform all required AEB tests with the RT-Range in combination with robots from Anthony Best Dynamics (ABD). An improved interface now allows data from a static target to be output to the robot during tests. From 2014 onwards, new vehicles need to be fitted with AEB systems in order to receive a five star Euro...

Define the shape of your test vehicle with up to 24 points

When testing and validating advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) with the OxTS RT-Range, test engineers can now define the shape of a target with up to 24 points. This ensures that the shape of a test vehicle, pedestrian or static target can now be defined as realistically as possible. Previously, the RT-Range software allowed users to define targets as a polygon with up to 8 points. Increasing the number of polygon points to 24 ensures that even complex vehicle shapes can be specified and...
