Dienstag, 10 September 2013 Automated Driving a ramp speed crossing, controlled by iTraceRT Autonomous driving repeatability demonstration

Bertha Benz: Automated Car Driving embedded in Real Traffic by Daimler AG

iMAR's iTraceRT being used as Safety System for most challenging automated driving

In August 2013 the engineers of Daimler AG demonstrated driving fully autonomously about 100 km non-stop embedded in the current traffic in Germany from Mannheim to Pforzheim with an S 500 INTELLIGENT DRIVE research car. They followed the historical track which had been performed by Bertha Benz exactly 125 years ago, at that time to demonstrate the reliability of the world's first car.

For navigation and control the car had only been equipped with close-to-production sensors. Only as a safety backup, a high performance INS/GNSS deeply coupled navigation system of type iTraceRT from manufacturer iMAR Navigation was installed.

iMAR Pipeline Surveying Explorer

iMAR launches iPSE "Pipeline Surveying Explorer" using Inertial Measurement System, Marker and Odometer Data

 With the iPSE - iMAR Pipeline Surveying Explorer a powerful processing tool is provided to pipeline maintenance and operator companies to calculate accurate position, attitude and heading of a pig (pipeline surveying vehicle) for pipeline surveying and maintenance tasks.

The iIPE uses as input information from the inertial measurement system (IMS) applied on the pig (like iPST-FMS or iPST-RQH), i.e. angular rates, acceleration and odometer information as well as external position aiding information (so-called markers). The result is a geometry file in WGS84 or ECEF containing the surveyed pipeline trajectory and pig's heading, roll, pitch, position, velocity and angular rates as well as acceleration, all time stamped in UTC84.

ADAS Verification Tool: iTraceRT for Automotive Testing

iMAR's iTraceRT for most accurate Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) testing

iMAR demonstrates the probably most advanced test method for car safety to the international press. The system supports the motion analysis of several vehicles (EGO and ALTER) to verify and optimize advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). It contains of one set of iTraceRT-F400, wireless data transmssion between the vehicles and GUI for easy operation. Each driver in each vehicle has access to all data of all vehicles in real-time and all relevant motion and dynamics information is displayed and monitored (e.g. distance and relative velocity between the vehicles, attitude, heading, acceleration and angular rates as well as position with centimeter accuracy). The system is operable on test areas as well as in real world conditions on highways and urban or rural areas.
