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.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) testing on an active safety test track at Millbrook Proving Ground

Autonomous vehicle and ADAS testing instrumentation and soft targets include:

  • OxTS RT3003 inertial & navigational measurements with 1cm positional accuracy when linked to OxTS RTK base station
  • Millbrook site wide RTK base station to 2cm positional accuracy
  • Time-aligned and fully synchronised data acquisition hardware and software
  • ABD steering robots with torque measuring and full path following capabilities
  • ABD combined brake & accelerator robot
  • EuroNCAP Vehicle Target (EVT) with towing rig
  • Audio Visual Alarm Detector (AVAD)
  • ABD Guided Soft Target (GST) and DRI Global Vehicle Target
  • ABD Launchpad with two-dimensional paths for pedestrians, cyclists and powered two-wheelers
  • ABD SPT pedestrian and cyclist motion rig with dual-belt system for crossing scenarios and single-belt system for longitudinal scenarios
  • 4a articulating adult and child pedestrian dummies
  • 4a static adult and child pedestrian dummies
  • 4a bicycle and cyclist dummies
  • 4a motorbike and scooter dummies
  • Full synchronisation between test vehicle and targets
  • Scope for additional sensors
