ADAS Testing

The demand for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in the automotive industry is greater than ever and will continue to grow rapidly. Vehicle Integrated safety systems are becoming more and more sophisticated to be able to cope with scenario’s with increased complexity. At TASS International we are fully accredited to assess the performance of these systems according to globally recognised testing procedures, for example, those devised by consumer group Euro NCAP for passenger vehicles.

Euro NCAP ADAS testing sees a new era in 2018 with many new requirements, such as the introduction of a 3D moving vehicle target, a new Cyclist target and expanded scenarios to cover. With this in mind, TASS International took all necessary measures to be well ahead of these challenging demands before the 2018 implementation.

We are also fully equipped to perform all ADAS tests conforming to current UNECE regulations for heavy duty vehicles (trucks and buses); namely ECE Regulation 130 (LDWS) and Regulation 131 (AEBS). Needless to say that all of our ADAS activities are ISO17025 accredited, making TASS International the first company in the world to achieve this ambitious goal.

Autonomous Emergency Braking – Car to Car Rear (AEB CCR)

The AEB tests in a Car to Car Rear (CCR) scenario consist of two elements:

  • City Systems (AEB), where the vehicle under test needs to brake automatically when approaching a stationary 3D target vehicle at a speed of 10 – 50km/h combined with an overlap range of -50% – +50%
  • Inter Urban System (AEB and FCW), where the vehicle under test needs to brake and / or give a Forward Collision Warning (FCW) in the following scenarios:

1. Approach at higher speed (30 – 80km/h) towards a stationary 3D target with an overlap range of -50% – +50% (FCW only)
2. Approach at higher speed (30 – 80km/h) towards a slower moving target with an overlap range of -50% – +50% (AEB and FCW)
3. Constant travel speed of 50km/h before the 3D target vehicle brakes with constant deceleration (AEB and FCW)

Autonomous Emergency Braking – Vulnerable Road Users (AEB VRU)

The AEB test in relation to Vulnerable Road Users has been updated for 2018 and includes the following:

  • CPFA-50: Adult dummy approaching from the farside, synchronised to impact the test vehicle at 50% overlap if no braking is applied. Test vehicle speeds of 20 – 60km/h
  • CPNA -25 / CPNA-75: Adult dummy approaching from the nearside, synchronised to impact the test vehicle at 25% or 75% overlap if no braking is applied. Test vehicle speeds of 20 – 60km/h
  • CPNC-50: Child dummy approaching from the nearside from behind an obstruction (parked vehicles), synchronised to impact the test vehicle at 50% overlap if no braking is applied. Test vehicle speeds of 20 – 60km/h
  • CPLA-50: Adult dummy walking longitudinally in the same direction as, and in line with the centreline of the test vehicle at 5km/h. Vehicle travel speed 20 – 60km/h
  • CPLA-25: Adult dummy walking longitudinally in the same direction as the test vehicle at 5km/h but offset to 25% overlap. In this scenario, only FCW is assessed. Vehicle travel speed is 50 – 80km/h
  • CBNA: Cyclist dummy approaching from the nearside, synchronised to impact the test vehicle at 50% overlap if no braking is applied. Test vehicle speeds of 20 – 60km/h
  • CBLA-50: Cyclist dummy traveling longitudinally in the same direction as, and in line with the centreline of the test vehicle at 15km/h. Vehicle travel speed is 25 – 60km/h
  • CBLA-25: Cyclist dummy traveling longitudinally in the same direction as the test vehicle at 20km/h but offset to 25% overlap. In this scenario only FCW is assessed. Vehicle travel speed is 50 – 80km/h

Additionally, CPNA-25, CPNA-75, CPLA-50 and CPLA-25 are all repeated under night conditions.

Lane Support Systems (LSS)

The LSS test in accordance with Euro NCAP 2018 protocols can be considered under 2 elements:
1. LKA
2. ELK

With additional points being awarded under HMI.

LKA (Lane Keep Assist). The test vehicle is assessed on its ability to remain in its lane under an unintentional departure scenario. This is then split into 3 scenarios:

  • Road Edge test: The driving lane is delineated by the road edge. The test vehicle is assessed on its ability to mitigate or avoid a road departure event
  • Dashed line: The driving lane is delineated by a dashed line. The test vehicle is assessed on its ability to mitigate or avoid a lane departure event
  • Solid line: The driving lane is delineated by a solid line. The test vehicle is assessed on its ability to mitigate or avoid a lane departure event

ELK (Emergency Lane Keep). For this scenario the system must be ‘default on’.
Many scenarios are identical to LKA assessment and as such only need to be assessed once if the system is ‘default on’ i.e. ‘road edge central lane marking’.
In other ELK scenarios the test vehicle is assessed on its ability to return to its lane or mitigate lane departure due to the presence of an oncoming or overtaking 3D target vehicle

Advanced Emergency Braking (ECE-R131)

  • AEB warning and activation, where the vehicle under test needs to automatically brake when approaching a stationary target vehicle at a speed of 80km/h
  • AEB warning and activation, where the tested vehicle needs to automatically brake when approaching a moving target at a speed of 80km/h
  • Additional discrimination tests are carried out to assess for false positives

Lane Departure Warning (ECE-R130)

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) test, where the vehicle under test must produce a warning when departing a lane at 2 different lateral velocities at a test speed of 65km/h (taking different line markings into account in respect to international variations)
