Securing the approval of automated driving functions for market introduction is a complex task due to the sheer number of different scenarios that require validation under a range of environmental parameters. Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving (AD) require the validation and verification of functions such as automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and fully automated driving features such as the highway chauffeur under real conditions.
OEMs have the further task of developing, optimizing, and testing these functions over a wide range of environmental scenarios and vehicle configurations. It has proved that virtual testing methods are more efficient and safer for a lot of use cases than testing on proving ground or on real road.
Beyond pure simulation, cyber-physical test methods play an important role. The AVL DRIVINGCUBE combines both, simulation and ready-to-drive vehicles on a chassis dynamometer or on a powertrain testbed. The experience gained in a large number of research and contracted projects was carefully incorporated into the design of the DRIVINGCUBE. It aims to speed up the validation and approval process of ADAS and AD systems by using fully automated, scenario-based testing increasing test coverage and reducing testing effort. Its holistic sensor stimulation and full range steering ability brings the proving ground to the testbed.
Comprehensive Sensor Over-The-Air Stimulation at the AVL DRIVINGCUBE
Together with Rohde & Schwarz and Stähle we designed completely new testing opportunities. Based on these strategic collaborations, we can now perform steering on the test-bed and radar-enabled and GNSS-based testing and validation under safe and reproducible conditions at vehicle level. With real built-in sensors being artificially simulated, no modifications of the vehicle are required. The AVL DRIVINGCUBE paves a new way for the acceleration of the validation and approval process of ADAS and AD systems. You can also benefit from our cutting-edge testing services, exclusive partner network and deep engagement with legal bodies and authorities

Dynamic Steering Force Emulator
This module is a retrofit extension to vehicles to allow a full range of steering capability with accurate force feedback from the virtual road. When attached to the vehicle, it is used to validate ADAS/AD functions that require realistic steering like active Lane Keeping Systems.
The radar generates independently moving and realistic targets for automotive radar sensors during the test drive - without mechanically moving parts and with minimum footprint. A wide range of radar sensor types can be stimulated over-the-air.
The camera stimulator allows the easy over-the-air stimulation of automotive cameras required for the validation of ADAS/AD function testing. No access to the vehicle camera is required.
It allows the dynamic stimulation of global navigation satellite system receivers with all possible positions on earth, while the vehicle is driving on a testbed. It supports standards like GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and GALILEO.
