ADAS-on-a-Treadmill Demonstrator

The ADAS-on-a-Treadmill Demonstrator is a laboratory platform used for researching & validating results on real-time safety-critical systems in the context of assisted and autonomous driving algorithms.  The demonstrator is a reusable, shared experimentation platform used for empirical evaluation suited for model-driven development, real-time systems and embedded systems. The platform demonstrates state-of-the-art and future connected vehicle technologies.

The ADAS platform consists of treadmill which mimics the movement of a straight road. The position control places the vehicle on the treadmill without it drifting away. A model car with on-board ADAS features emulates various driving conditions:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Forward Colission Detection and Avoidance (FCDA)

The platform is modular in design, allows for easy replacement of car or control algorithms. The entire system is being specifically designed for research on real-time embedded software. The design, the source code, and the electronics will be properly documented, available, and open for modification.
