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.
