Ultra-Flat Overrunable (UFO) Robot Platform

Our Ultra-Flat Overrunable (UFO) robot platform delivers a versatile and low-maintenance solution for your active safety testing needs. The UFO is remotely controlled with a Global Vehicle Target (GVT) or vulnerable road user (VRU) dummy attached to the top. Its stability and low profile allow you to run fully autonomous testing on the latest collision mitigation features with maximum accuracy and repeatability without risking damage to the test vehicles or driver.

The Standard UFOpro is designed for Euro NCAP ADAS testing and has a great degree of flexibility with optional add-ons such as the Arrow Ramp, which can be swapped with the standard front ramp for side impact tests, and the VRU Kit, a mounting platform for linear trajectory tests with pedestrian and bicycle dummies.

Software

  • Test scenario generation – selection: intuitive GUI guides the user through the selection of predefined scenarios or in the creation of new ones.
  • Test scenario execution: the Humanetics UFObase software functions as a control center for up to 9 Humanetics active safety robots. This allows very complex traffic simulation scenarios where multiple vehicles are synchronized to each other to assess Performance.
  • Test evaluation: tailored test evaluation solutions are available within the Humanetics software portfolio. From a simple plot of the test data to an automatic evaluation of test scenarios, the user can choose the solution that best suits their needs

INSTRUMENTATION
Motion Data Generation High precision GNSS unit collects motion data during test execution
Motion Data Output After each test the motion data is synchronized and saved into a result file. The user can choose to evaluate the tests based on the generated result file or to use the pre-defined evaluation software that Humanetics developed in combination with AVL.
