OxTS engineers recently attended the annual AstaZero Testers’ Day event hosted by Provinn AB in Borås, Sweden, presenting solutions for automotive testing.
We were delighted by the reception to our solution for the validation of automated parking systems, RT-Range. We delivered live demonstrations using precision GNSS/INS technology and our NEW Multiple Sensor Points technology in RT-Range. The demos showed how test engineers are able to collect reference data from up to 12 individual sensor positions on their test vehicle, in real time each with an individually configurable range and field of view.
For those that weren’t able to attend, here’s a video showing how it works:
Live demonstration of park-assist scenario using OxTS multiple sensor points technology with precision GNSS/INS
Test Scenario: Park-Assist
In this parallel park-assist scenario, the VUT parallel parks between two parked vehicles at the side of a road. Horizontal Range to both vehicles and to the curb can be provided in real time alongside time-to-collision measurements.
In addition, Multiple Sensor Points can show users precisely what the vehicle can detect or if there are any blind spots that could risk a collision as the vehicle manoeuvres into the space.
Key features of the technology this demonstration utilised include:
- Polygon set up (up to 24 sensor points can be mapped around the vehicle)
- Target visibility
- Time-to-collision measurements
- Feature points (vehicle to fixed object measurements)
Over the course of the day over 100 test engineers from across the automotive industry specialising in ADAS and autonomous technologies witnessed the live demonstrations. The feedback we received was very positive.
