ADAS functional evaluations with highly accurate positioning and various tests
What led to the introduction of the service?
In developing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), the client had to conduct various tests such as Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). However, they did not have any knowledge of functional evaluation of ADAS in-house, so they sought a company that could support them in testing. In accordance with the prescribed testing method, they wanted to evaluate the starting position of the ADAS after obtaining the position information of the vehicle itself. In addition, they were required to conduct a functional evaluation in accordance with the New Car Assessment Programs (NCAPs) of multiple countries around the world and the Japan New Car Assessment Programme (JNCAP).
Issues before introduction
The client did not have the know-how or facilities, such as chassis dynamometers, to conduct functional evaluations of driving on public roads. Another issue was that they had no experience in conducting evaluations in accordance with NCAPs or the JNCAP before.
Examples of use after introduction
For the client, we arranged the test content and conducted the evaluation of the ADAS in accordance with NCAPs and the JNCAP. In addition to newly developed ADAS, we successfully carried out functional evaluations of vehicles equipped with ADAS developed by other companies.
Effectiveness and achieved results
Real-time Kinematic (RTK) Positioning allowed the client to accurately measure the behavior of the vehicle. They were also able to obtain the knowledge and evaluation methods necessary for the development of an ADAS, as well as support for conducting tests.
