Test person study on fully automated parking assistants at IFM successfully completed

In March 2022, numerous test persons had the chance to participate in a test person study on the topic of “Comparison and evaluation of fully automated parking assistants of different car manufacturers” at the IFM (Institute for Driver Assistance and Connected Mobility) in Benningen. For the study, the participants represent normal customers who would also resort to using the parking assistant in everyday life. The participants were provided with four different mid-range and luxury class vehicles with which they were to perform six different parking maneuvers. These maneuvers represented everyday parking situations as far as possible and had to be…

5 reasons why you need the MXsteerHiL for your steering development

For vehicle engineers, experiencing steering feel is essential for evaluation. Imagine being able to experience, evaluate and apply this steering feel much earlier in the development phase and without a vehicle. With the MXsteerHiL you experience the real steering feel at an early stage at your desk or in the lab and not – as usual – only in the prototype vehicle. The differences in steering feel can be measured and calibrated with the MXsteerHiL. Especially in automated driving, the MXsteerHiL allows you to enter development with a high degree of maturity. Sounds unimaginable? It isn’t. Because that is our…

All-round upgrade: Dynamic driving simulator now fully operational in Benningen

ABD driving simulator at University Kempten

Kempten/Benningen. Since October 2021, we eventually have it back: After weeks of moving from Kempten to the new location of the Institute for Driver Assistance and Connected Mobility (IFM) in Benningen, the dynamic driving simulator is back in operational use. The simulation team of the Adrive research group took the opportunity to implement an extensive upgrade. The result: a significantly larger and more powerful visualization, more room to move, increased performance and a wider range of applications in the field of driving dynamics, driving comfort and automated driving. When it was decided to move the institute to the new location…

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…
