Humanetics driving robot

Driving Robot

The Humanetics Driving Robot offers precise, repeatable performance on the test track – in a compact, ergonomic design that will have you up and running in no time. The robot controls your test vehicle’s steering, braking, and accelerator, enabling you to navigate it around the track autonomously with highly precise measurements of position, velocity, acceleration, angular rates, roll, pitch, slip angles and more.

Both hardware and software have been optimized for overall user-friendliness. You’ll find plenty of room left over for a second passenger in the front and all of your third-party equipment in the back. We’ve made the setup as quick and easy as possible so that you can relax and focus on the tests at hand.

    • Test scenario generation – selection: intuitive GUI guides the user through the selection of predefined scenarios or in the creation of new ones.
    • Test scenario execution: the Humanetics UFObase software functions as a control center for up to 9 Humanetics active safety robots. This allows very complex traffic simulation scenarios where multiple vehicles are synchronized to each other to assess performance.
    • Test evaluationtailored test evaluation solutions are available within the Humanetics software portfolio. From a simple plot of the test data to an automatic evaluation of test scenarios, the user can choose the solution that best suits their needs.

    Motion Data Generation High precision GNSS unit collects motion data during test execution.
    Motion Data Output After each test the motion data is synchronized and saved into a result file. The user can choose to evaluate the tests based on the generated result file or to use the pre-defined evaluation software that Humanetics developed in combination with AVL.
