Konrad and three NI Alliance partners join to develop autonomous vehicle test solutions

March 28, 2017 - Konrad Technologies GmbH, SET GmbH, S.E.A. Datentechnik GmbH, measX GmbH & Co. KG announced a collaboration - ADAS IIT-Innovation In Test – leveraging their expertise in the field of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), sensor fusion, Hardware in the Loop (HiL), V2X communication, GNSS simulation and data management to provide a one stop solution for fully autonomous vehicles.

With the ADAS IIT collaboration, the four technological companies offer an approach for ADAS testing, joining their knowledge and skills to develop scalable future-proof ADAS test solutions based on the standardized National Instruments (NI) platforms.

The ADAS IIT group is the first to present cost-optimized consolidated ADAS test solutions for virtual test drive combining; sensor fusion, Hardware in the Loop (HiL) testing system, V2X communication, GNSS simulation and integrated data management systems. This NI platform based concept will help bring autonomous vehicles to the market safer and faster than expected.

Together, the expertise in ADAS Sensor Fusion of Konrad Technologies GmbH, on HiL of SET GmbH, on V2X Communication and GNSS Application of S.E.A. Datentechnik GmbH, and on Data Management of measX GmbH & Co. KG form a complete, flexible set of tools from design to development, implementation, and validation to production.

The companies agreed to collaborate on the research and development of a seamless one-stop solution designed to make autonomous driving even more predictable and safe; a solution providing a significantly more robust and capable architecture across the automotive industry that simplifies and shortens development times for automobile manufacturers.

The ADAS IIT – Innovation In Test collaboration is expected to close in the first quarter of 2017. It will be the premier partnership with research and development infrastructure put in place to achieve complete ADAS test solutions in a lab environment replacing today’s validation and assessment in real life.

Upon final completion, more than 300 engineers in Europe, Asia and USA will work on the next steps towards a complete test of fully autonomous vehicles in a virtual environment, from design to development, implementation, validation to production and testing services around the globe.
