UFOnano with pedestrian dummy attached on top


Our UFOnano was developed to fill the need for a smaller ADAS evaluation tool capable of executing complex, realistic vulnerable road user scenarios. It fits all commonly-used VRU dummies and will also support the next generation of highly-sophisticated human replicas.  

This versatile new device features the same familiar design as the standard Humanetics UFO, but its compact size allows it to drive a curve in every radius and even turn on the spot. It can easily accommodate a pedestrian test dummy with a shoulder width footprint barely larger than that of a real person, allowing multiple dummies to ‘swarm’ together shoulder to shoulder and mimic individualized behavior.  

As with all members of the UFO family, the UFOnano is overrunable and has the advantage of high-capacity, swappable batteries. Despite the compact size, its robust construction enables diverse scenarios to be carried out with excellent stabilty, while the integrated RTK-GPS system ensures spot-on accuracy.
