VBOX systems provide a simple and accurate way to test and validate Advanced Driver Assistance systems. With real-time measurements of parameters from up to three vehicles and at less than 2cm positional accuracy, the Racelogic VBOX ADAS testing system allows developers to easily verify the effectiveness of their products. Customers like Honda, Nissan, GM, Autoliv, and Toyota use VBOX ADAS equipment to test their safety systems. At the core of the system is the VBOX 3i Dual Antenna with RTK, connected via radio telemetry to an RTK Base Station, or to another VBOX 3i acting as a 'moving base'.

Autonomous Vehicle Testing

Autonomous testing

  • Ground truth measurement for autonomous vehicles
  • Testing and validating the performance of autonomous vehicles requires a highly accurate reference system. Engineers need to be sure that an autonomous system works well in the real-world, and that the vehicle follows an exact path, without deviation.
  • VBOX systems are a reliable source of ground truth, providing resilient high-accuracy position, navigation and timing (PNT) through the combination of multi-frequency GNSS, inertial data and odometer input (wheel speed from vehicle CAN). All solutions are accurate to within a centimetre outdoors or indoors with our UWB indoor positioning system.

Due to their high precision, flexibility, and ease of installation, VBOX data loggers are used by almost every automotive and tyre manufacturer in the world to carry out brake distance measurements and for validating the accuracy of braking assist systems.

With enhancements in tyre compounds and constructions getting smaller each year, manufacturers need the ability to accurately measure changes. VBOX data loggers are easy to set up, quick to use, and can provide measurements at up to ±2 cm positional accuracy - allowing engineers to plot even the smallest improvements in performance. Our tyre testing solutions enable you to test both summer and winter tyres all year round in controlled conditions, both indoors and outdoors.

How does VIPS work?

A number of fixed Ultra-Wideband (UWB) beacons are placed around the indoor test area (minimum 6), in known positions which have been manually surveyed using a handheld laser or Total Station (if time is of the essence, a self-survey can also be performed). The beacons are completely stand-alone, and can be battery powered, making the deployment very rapid..

VBOX Robot Integration

vbox-loggers-popup"

Driving robots for steering and throttle/brake control are often used in vehicle testing and development where the test procedures call for absolute consistency that a human driver cannot perform; and also in cases where the manoeuvres are not considered acceptably safe to have a driver at the wheel, or are extremely difficult to carry out (such as the Sine With Dwell element of ESC testing).

For some tests which need the vehicle to take a repeatable and highly accurate drive line – such as AEB or lane change testing - a VBOX 3i RTK is used to provide speed, heading, and positional data to the required accuracy for a driving robot to follow a predefined path.

Using a 'Moving Base' setup allows you to test ADAS applications on the open road. It works by linking two VBOX 3i RTK units, with the system in the subject vehicle transmitting corrections to the target vehicle at an update rate of 20 times per second.

This replaces the need to implement an RTK Base Station with a limited broadcast range, and provides engineers with the ability to test on normal roads, over reasonable distances, among other road users and roadside furniture, to under 5 cm relative positional accuracy.
