All of our steering robots have an angular encoder built in; a feedback device that reports back to the control system what angle the steering robot is at.
In this blog post, we look back at how we designed the gearshift robot. At the time, there were one or two other devices on the market which were used in chassis dyno testing, where the vehicle is stationary in a test lab. These used heavy and complex mechanisms to move the gearstick through its range of motion, and didn’t allow you to sit in the driver’s seat.
One of the challenges of ADAS testing is ensuring you have the right amount of space when creating complex scenarios with multiple vehicles or soft targets. Higher speed ADAS tests require more space.
We've put together a guide of suggested minimum space requirements, so you know exactly how much space you need.
Path following, a technology first developed by AB Dynamics in 2001, is now well known and in use globally for tests such as the ISO lane change and a raft of ADAS standards. What may be less widely understood is how it can help with many other tests which are not defined in terms of a trajectory to follow. Here we will look at the path following lead-in and how it can help with testing in constrained spaces.
