Trackfi Image1

Secure high bandwidth data transfer between multiple vehicles

TrackFi PowerMesh is a dual band Ethernet radio, capable of creating secure mesh networks whilst providing high bandwidth data transfer between multiple vehicles. This offers greatly improved reliability over standard WLAN technology, making it ideal for vehicle testing including Euro NCAP AEB testing and driverless vehicle testing.

How Close Are We To Full Autonomy

Complete connectivity of all test vehicles and objects

TrackFi PowerMesh provides low latency data transfer between multiple vehicles or to Ground Traffic Control. It is suitable for use in large areas with obstructions such as trees or buildings and is immune to destructive multi-path interference.

Real-time data transfer between multiple vehicles

Live test data from multiple moving vehicles can be relayed to the laboratory for remote monitoring. This includes AB Dynamics' Driverless and Synchro Robot data, along with V2V and V2X position and speed measurement.

Track Fi Power Mesh Vehicle Node For Driverless Vehicle Testing Over Large Areas

Case Study: Growth of Driverless and ADAS Testing

The recent growth in wireless data transfer from the increasing use of driverless traffic in automotive testing is causing significant issues for the industry.

Increasingly complex test scenarios require the use of driverless vehicles and other moving elements, such as ADAS targets, which must all be in constant communication with each other. This increase in data transfer can result in interference and signal dropout, triggering fail-safe architectures to stop the test, meaning that test scenarios have to be reset and repeated.

System Options

  • Vehicle

    With fold-down antennas making it ideal for use in ADAS tests where a soft target collision could cause damage.

  • Within ADAS platforms

    A compact single antenna wide band radio compatible with TrackFi PowerMesh radio for GST and LaunchPad platforms.

  • Static node

    Can be mounted on the infrastructure or beside the track and rapidly deployed to extend mesh coverage using the supplied folding tripod.

  • Guided soft targets

    External breakaway cables ensure there is minimal damage when performing ADAS testing.

  • Launchpad integration

    Configured either using the integral antennas for simplicity or external breakaway connectors for increased range.

  • Trackside battery

    Used to power static nodes in locations where mains power is not available. Typically lasts 48h of continuous use.
