Newsletter – OxTS RT-Range for the most complex ADAS tests


September 9, 2013

As testing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is getting more and more complex, car manufacturers need a test system which can perform a wide range of highly complicated tests including multiple vehicles under realistic traffic scenarios. The RT-Range is already the most comprehensive solution used globally for ADAS tests such as NHTSA FCW, LDW orEuroNCAP Autonomous Emergency Braking. Here is why…


180_180_AEBTestRT-Range for AEB testing 

The RT-Range system from OxTS is one of the preferred solutions for testing Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) features. EuroNCAP members ADAC and Thatcham have used the OxTS RT-Range for AEB testing as well as for validation of other advanced driver assistance systems. The RT-Range provides highly accurate vehicle-to-vehicle measurements in real-time. Measurements to a stationary vehicle, a towed balloon car or even pedestrians are possible. The systems are fully compatible with driving robots for autonomous tests. Read more….

Oxford Technical Solutions has recently provided a GPS-aided inertial navigation system for integration in a new piece of technology. Dynamic Research, Inc. (DRI) has collaborated withAnthony Best Dynamics (ABD) to develop an integrated ABD/DRIGuided Soft Target (GST) vehicle, with DRI being responsible for the design and development of the chassis, and ABD integrating their software and driverless control system technology. As part of the control system, an OxTS RT3000 is used to provide high-precision position measurements for accurate path-following controlRead more…


180_180_FeaturePoints.1Validating Traffic Sign Detection systems 

New traffic sign recognition systems need to provide reliable detection for targets which fall within an ADAS sensor’s scope. With the new feature point technology in the RT-Range, vehicle manufacturers can now test and validate vision based ADAS sensors in real-time and with high accuracy. Just load a set of pre-defined feature points into our software (which can represent traffic lights or road signs), enter the field of view of your sensors and the RT-Range will output a wealth of measurements including longitudinal range, lateral range, time-to-collision etc. when these feature points enter the specified field of view. Read more…
