Messring will demonstrate how it has designed a new generation of dynamic pedestrian targets that simulate complex and dynamic motion sequences. The Active Safety system will allow more realistic tests of autonomous emergency braking systems (AEB) and how they react to vulnerable road users.
Targets are moved by a dedicated moving device. This setup enables a variety of test scenarios involving direction, velocity and level changes. Advanced pedestrian detection and AEB systems, including features like path prediction and detection of pre-indicators (e.g. chest angle modification), can truly be put to the test with this system, as the most complex of trajectories can be created.
Thanks to the add-on positioning and monitoring device M=STAR, the system can be made even more precise and consistent, through the use of trigger signals for accurate positioning and timing. M=STAR gives reliable positioning data of vehicles or test components during test procedures. The data it obtains is streamed and combines the test object’s current position, velocity and acceleration. It is a plug-and-play solution that can be mounted to a vehicle’s roof or to other test objects. Furthermore, it is wireless, and the replaceable battery allows for more than 10 hours of operation within a 500m distance of the base station on the test site.
