The system generates artificial lidar objects to present them to a vehicle together with camera and radar. It is already in use at the Horiba test center in Oberursel (Germany), but can also be implemented at customer sites. With this system, the company is breaking new ground in avoiding interference with vehicle data bus systems, and this development closes the gap between simulations in the test center and test drives under real-life road traffic conditions.
With the test system, the manufacturer enables its customers to comply with the upcoming UN regulation for autonomous driving (Level 3) in the field of lidar. According to the supplier, the system is also suitable for tests of other lidar-based products and services, such as industrial applications in product quality assurance.
The test system gives customer companies an advantage in the development of autonomous driving functions and related services. In addition, the patent-pending technology also offers potential applications in homologation and technical testing of vehicles.
