The automatic driving, sometimes also known as path following, enables the vehicle to exaclty follow xy-coordinates on the road with precise velocity, even for high dynamic driving maneuvers. Required steering wheel angle und pedal operations are calculated in real time. Besides easy track and velocity profile definition a recording of manual driving and high-precision replay is provided.
Reproducible unmanned driving with easy handling and intuitive operation are the essential features. CO.DRIVE is available as software option for all of our steering robots.
CO.DRIVE - Key Features
CO.DRIVE - Required Components
For the driving robot CO.DRIVE you need following components:
Reproducibility and accuracy
CO.DRIVE is able to accelerate and decelerate the vehicle according to the previously defined velocity profiles. Highest track accuracies in lateral and longitudinal direction are achieved for the entire speed range.
The sample application target point braking illustrates the potential of CO.DRIVE. Given a desired standstill point on the track the required deceleration is calculated in realtime during the breaking. Accurate stopping at a given target point is achieved.
It does not matter whether it is a vehicle with a diesel or gasoline engine, or whether the vehicle has an automatic or manual transmission.
Range of Applications
CO.DRIVE combines maximum accuracy, extreme reliability and robustness for use in the daily test environment. It opens up a broad range of applications:
- ADAS development and testing like ESC, ACC, Blind Spot Assistant, Collision Warning Systems etc
- fully automated ISO 3888 double lane change
- automated driving of a handling course
- misuse tesing
- brake tests with maximum track accuracy
- endurance testing, rough road testing
- accident reconstruction
- stunt scenes with moving cars
- and much more
