Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Testing

Millbrook uses a range of test tracks, instrumentation and soft targets to test Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and vehicle active safety features, including those of self-driving cars.

Millbrook’s test facilities and proving grounds allow a wide range of controlled and semi-controlled driving scenarios to be set up. They test systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Autonomous Parking and Lane Support, and those found in driverless cars.

Instrumentation and Soft Targets used for ADAS testing include:

  • OxTS RT3003 inertial & navigational measurements with 1cm positional accuracy when linked to OxTS RTK base station
  • Time aligned and fully synchronised data acquisition hardware and software
  • ABD Torus steering robot with torque measuring and full path following capabilities
  • ABD combined brake & accelerator robot
  • Moshon EuroNCAP Vehicle Target (EVT) with towing rig

  • ABD Guided Soft Target (GST) and DRI
    Global Vehicle Target
  • ABD Launchpad
  • ABD SPT pedestrian and cyclist motion rig
    - Dual belt system for crossing scenarios
    - Single belt system for longitudinal scenarios
  • 4a articulating adult and child pedestrian dummies
  • 4a bicycle and cyclist dummy
  • Full synchronisation between test vehicle and targets
  • Scope for additional sensors and cameras to record vehicle warnings and other parameters

ADAS and autonomous vehicle test capabilities include:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
    - Static and mobile vehicle to vehicle shunt collisions
    - Pedestrian and cyclist crossing in front of a vehicle
    - Vehicle turning across the path of pedestrians and cyclists
  • Lane Support Systems
    - Lane Departure Warning
    - Lane Keep Assist
    - Emergency Lane Keep
    - Blind Spot Recognition
  • Active Cruise Control
  • Autonomous Parking
  • Customer-specific scenarios
