MXeval NEW RELEASE 3.2: Correlations point by point

MXeval 3.2 New Release

The latest generation of our evaluation and targeting software for attribute based development has made a further step into usability and efficient validation. Two major new features have been implemented for this purpose.     KPI Correlation With the newly introduced XY scatter plots KPI correlations can be created to analyze the dependencies of certain KPIs. In combination with custom KPIs and channels, this feature really boosts the evaluation capabilities, especially with larger datasets.         GUI Redesign The overall GUI layout of MXeval has been updated for a more effective evaluation experience, that allows you to focus…

WEBINAR: How to scale ADAS testing with objective KPIs

How to scale ADAS testing with objective KPIs

Panel discussion with MdynamiX, GeneSys, atlatec and the Kempten University of Applied Sciences  Tuesday, June 8th, 2021 – 10 am CEST (German) Thursday June 10th, 2021 – 18 pm CEST (English) Modern-day ADAS features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keep Assist/LKAS and others are a highly innovative domain. Some developments are driven by regulatory requirements (NCAP etc.), others aim to give car makers an edge over their competition, in terms of comfort and driving pleasure. Especially for the latter, however, regulatory requirements are insufficient KPIs for designing and testing ADAS features: One of the main challenges is how to define…

Using the design thinking method to create the ideal head-up display

Test person designs his own head-up display

Kempten. The head-up display (HUD) is definitely a driver assistance system that triggers true enthusiasm among the majority of users. In addition to this euphoria, it contributes to greater safety on the road by projecting important information directly into the driver’s field of vision. This is because the car driver is not distracted by displays in the instrument cluster, the on-board computer or the navigation system display. However, an earlier subject study at Kempten University of Applied Sciences showed that the current HUD concept still has great potential for improvement from the customer’s point of view. Therefore, a study was…

Cooperative project METAVI takes off – MX on board as a collaborative partner

METAVI Key Visual

Benningen. The kickoff meeting for the three-year METAVI cooperative project took place at the new location of MX research partner Adrive Living Lab in the industrial park in Benningen near the “Allgäu Airport”. The project is funded by “Bayern Digital”, an initiative of the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy promoting human-centered technologies and development methods for automated driving. The University of Applied Sciences Kempten, with its Institute for Future Mobility (IFM) and the associated Adrive Living Lab, is the consortium leader of the 5 million euro project. In addition to MdynamiX, the partner network consists of…

Autonomous Cars for Research and Development

…thanks to the MXcarkit. The success story from a model car at a student competition to a top tool in research and development has already been told. In this blog post, we will use an application example to show what can be extracted from the perfectly equipped model cars, both among students in research institutes and in the R&D department of an OEM. The MXcarkits are modified vehicles originally from model construction that do much more than remotely control driving and parking situations. By incorporating sensor technology and a real-time computer, they have real computing power on board and can…

Annual review: How MdynamiX experienced the year 2020

ATZ Driving Experience

Munich/Kempten. The year 2020 was a very memorable one for all of us and will forever have a special place in our memories. The year took its course, but then COVID-19 hit globally. We also faced seemingly insurmountable challenges. After the initial shock, we went to work in our home offices in the very first lockdown. Despite the Corona pandemic, MdynamiX looks back on a successful year with this short review. The big highlight was definitely the roll-out event including the Tech Day at the beginning of the year. The MX partner institute Adrive Living Lab of the University of…

Using Electric Drives for Active Sound Generation

Active Sound Generation MXsounddesigner

MdynamiX, the Affiliated Institute of the Munich University of Applied Sciences, is researching noise generation using electric drives in order apply this approach to acoustic function augmentation in the future. The electric motor virtually becomes a loudspeaker and can thus serve as a so-called Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS). Without additional hardware, the applications developed can be used not only to realize the required warning signals for electric vehicles, but also to design brand-specific sounds. The basic functionality of electric drives is not affected or even disturbed. Read the full article in ATZ issue October 2020 or download PDF

Concept study on customer acceptance of camera-monitor systems

Kamera-Monitor-System Konzeptstudie

Kempten / Illertissen. Digital rear-view mirrors are no longer news, they are on the rise. On the one hand, for aerodynamic reasons and the associated energy savings – especially in the case of electromobility, every kilometer saved counts. On the other hand, the new camera-based systems provide a more comprehensive retrospective view and thus greater safety. But what about customer acceptance? The Adrive Living Lab, the research partner of MdynamiX in the Allgäu region, is also familiar with the topic of digital rear view mirrors. Already in 2018 the team had conducted a study with the title “User Experience in…
