» Radar
» Laser and lidar
» Ultrasonic
» PMD / Time of Flight
» E-Horizon from HD-MAP  (under development)
»
V2V and V2I communication
        • DSRC antenna receivers (Rx) and transmitters (Tx)
        • Standard message sets (e.g. SAE J2735 BSM)
» Infrared (NIR)
» User-defined sensor models

PreScan radar modeling for ACC system in ISO scenario test

Ground truth sensors

» SELF sensor
(providing relevant object information for calibration of tracking and tracing algorithms)
» Depth camera
(providing depth values for calibration of stereo camera algorithms)
» Lane marker sensor
(providing lane and road information for calibration of lane warning or keeping systems)
» Bounding box sensor
(for calibration of object and pedestrian detection algorithms)

Example of usage of PreScan depth camera for calibration of stereo camera algorithm

Scenario

» User-defined road network
(e.g. straight road, curved road, roundabout, crossings)
» 3D road segments and embankments
(e.g. sloping roads, hill roads, bridges, fly-overs and speed bumps)
» Road infrastructure
(e.g. lane markers, pedestrian crossings, traffic signs, traffic lights, light poles, matrix signs, guard rails)
» Road users
(e.g. cars, trucks, animated cyclists & pedestrians)
» Animated pedestrians with natural motion
(e.g. male, female and child, various lengths and sizes, carrying suitcase, umbrella, bagpack & bicycle)
» Database of buildings, trees & bushes
» Environmental conditions

(day & night conditions, different intensities of rain, fog and snow, dirt spots, street lighting)
» Lighting effects
(e.g. illumination, shadows, reflections)
» Light reflections from vehicle lights
(On wet roads, vehicle surfaces and reflective road objects)
 » Reflective road objects
(cat eyes, Botts'dots, guardrail reflectors, roadside poles)
» Test automation
(access to model parameters for use in test automation studies)
