OVERVIEW

Single-box solution for ADAS testing

The recent integration of the RT-Range Hunter processing engine within the RT3000 v3 unit itself represents a significant step forward in terms of time-saving simplicity functionality. With ADAS engineers under constant pressure to perform increasingly complex tests on time and with minimal fuss, the RT3000 v3’s built-in relative positioning technology now offers a single-box solution to multi-target range processing and objective validation to global NCAP and NHTSA standards.

The next-generation RT’s one-box design incorporates all of the RT-Range Hunter functionality while reducing set-up and configuration time and saving both space and weight in the vehicle under test. An array of connectivity options, including three ethernet ports, multiple CAN bus ports and a new CAN-FD interface, allow for driving robot support when required and the real-time display and fast and easy logging of data.

Open-road ADAS testing is now made even easier still thanks to the next-generation RT’s on-board NTRIP client. This simplifies set-up and configuration by removing the need to connect an external device and app when using NTRIP RTK differential corrections during public road tests or when an RTK base station is impractical or unavailable.

Upgrading the new RT3000 v3 to full RT-Range Hunter functionality is as simple as adding an additional software feature code.

Objective validation to global NCAP standards

The RT-Range Hunter processor turns the vehicle dynamics measurements captured by the RT to process the range, orientation and relative motion of multiple vehicles. The RT-Range functionality is used globally for objective validation of camera, radar and LiDAR sensors as well as ADAS testing for braking, lane departure warning and collision avoidance systems.

Vehicle-to-target and lane position measurements

The RT-Range Hunter can be used for accurate measurement of the relative motion and range of up to four target vehicles from a vehicle under test (VuT) or Hunter. Vehicle-to-vehicle measurements are computed over a 1 km range. The system can also precisely measure position relative to lane markings and up to 60,000 surveyed feature points e.g. traffic signals. Measurements are displayed in real-time and output over CAN in the Hunter vehicle.

Measure range to four targets simultaneously

The RT-Range Hunter creates a real-time network capable of tracking up to four targets and calculating distance, time to collision and other relative measurements in real-time. Targets can be vehicles, soft targets, pedestrian dummies or nearby objects.

Measure closest point and visibility of targets

Plot the outline of hunter and target vehicles to create polygons of up to 24 points. The RT-Range Hunter automatically calculates range measurements between the nearest polygon points and visibility of targets – features designed to support park-assist and collision avoidance testing.

Preferred system for driving robot manufacturers

Dedicated AB Dynamics driving robot interface for maximum reliability, unparalleled accuracy and repeatability.
