Fog system

With the help of the fogging system in the indoor test hall, realistic fog scenarios can be simulated from water particles. The density and thus the visibility of the fog can be adjusted, thus enabling reproducible sensor tests. Visibility ranges of <10 metres allow the simulation of extreme situations.

Due to a fogged area of approx. 250 m², highly dynamic sensor and driving tests can be realised in addition to static tests. The 50 m length of the fogged area allows research into the effects on the vehicle environment sensor technology, even over long distances.

As the standing fog forms in the area under the rain system, combinations of rain and fog are also possible.

Examples of use

  • Reduction of the intensities of LiDAR rays
  • Reducing the contrast of the camera
