Autonomous Vehicle Testing
Enabling Safer Mobility
Our range of products is used extensively in the development and proving of autonomous vehicles.
Watch as we demonstrate complex scenarios for testing driverless cars. This involves multiple robot and by-wire driven vehicles with ADAS targets, coordinated using our patented Synchro technology.
Case Study: AB Dynamics and VW Group perform swarm vehicle test
We collaborated with VW, Audi and Porsche to demonstrate synchronized 'swarm test' with the greatest number of vehicles.
Over 11 days, 152 tests were carried out with high-runs up to 130km/h and 'cutting in' manoeuvres with vehicles as close as 1m. Click here to read the full story and watch the full video.
Case study: safe testing of autonomous vehicles in China
We're working with a customer in China to create realistic scenarios for testing autonomous vehicles using our suite of products synchronised together. Click here to read the full interview with the deputy General Manager of SH Intelligent, Dr Lin Li.
Take your hands off the wheel

These robots are used to develop the control algorithms used in self-driving vehicles.
Acting in “external follow” mode, robots can be used as actuators driven by control signals received in real-time. They enable engineers to create, test and refine self-driving software using any car.
The Flex-0 controller
The Flex-0 controller allows our powerful Robot Controller software to be used to control the vehicle directly without any robots.
The controller connects via a CAN or Ethernet connection to a compatible car, and tests can be programmed in exactly the same way as with robots.
ADAS targets are used to create moving test environments in which to prove the vehicle’s ability to drive safely. Multiple targets (including vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists) can be synchronised to the test vehicle.
