The Mobile Robots are ultra-flat drive-over platforms used for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) tests. Due to their vehicle-like movements and programmable trajectories, real traffic scenarios can be driven. These include, for example, intersection and lane change scenarios.
The platforms can be driven over by test vehicles without damaging them, and the targets standing on them also survive collisions without damage. Thus, reproducible tests can be carried out and both pre-crash and crash or post-crash scenarios can be mapped. The platforms are monitored and operated via a radio receiver. The on-board processor (central unit) evaluates various sensor data in real time (odometry, dGPS) to determine the exact position of the platform, enabling the programmed trajectory to be followed precisely.
