MXcarkit: Model vehicles as an indispensable intermediate step between simulation and real test

Efficient and scalable development

The MXcarkits are high-quality model vehicles on a scale of 1:8. The installation of sensors, a special motor controller and a real-time computer ensures that all the prerequisites are in place to automatically master driving situations. The performance of the components is scaled in two stages and offers sufficient resources in the upper stage to implement even the most complex algorithms. The effort for commissioning is very low because a specially adapted and completely accessible basic software is provided. In addition, we have set up a moderated online forum in which we offer support on all topics related to the MXcarkits.

Due to their robust construction and easy usability, the vehicles achieve a high intrinsic motivation in training programs for all participants. Because the vehicles are compatible with the VDI Automomous Driving Challenge, there is always the sporting and technical ambition to compete with other teams in the competitions there.

The MXcarkits had their first – and successful – use in the VDI Autonomous Driving Challenge in March 2020. In the meantime, the MXcarkits have become a popular standard in the automotive industry, both in training programs and in pre-development.

The powerful NVIDIA modules used have access to all built-in sensors and actuators of the vehicle dynamics.

The Robot Operation System (ROS) known from robot and automated driving development enables easy handling and development of application software as well as the integration of further sensors and actuators through standardized interfaces.

Each MXcarkit is equipped with a WLAN module that allows live telemetry and online data evaluation.
