Baselabs, Tass facilitate virtual testing of ADAS algorithms

September 04, 2014 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
The development of automated vehicle systems and sophisticated driver assistance systems is already taking shape - with the design of virtual test environments for complex sensor fusion scenarios. Against this background two players in the small but promising niche of algorithms and platforms for virtual testing have joined forces.

Baselabs GmbH has signed a partnership agreement with Dutch company Tass International. The move enables Tass to use Baselabs' probabilistic sensor simulation models with its Prescan simulation platform which is widely used in the industry. The Prescan software simulates the behaviour of vehicle sensors in complex traffic scenarios and is used both for the creation of control algorithms and for the development of sensor concepts for assisted and automated driving.

Baselabs will enhance the Prescan sensor portfolio with its probabilistic sensor models. These models stand out with their high level of realism while maintaining flexibility and adaptability of simulation-based validation strategies. PreScan can be used in a rather wide range of development scenarios - from model-based controller design (MIL) to real-time tests with software-in-the-loop (SIL), hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems or a driver-in-the-loop (DIL).
