ADAS sensors theory and in-car demos

About session

This workshop offers a chance for people to understand the basic principles of ADAS sensors, explain their advantages and disadvantages, explain basics in signal processing and applications in automated driving.

The workshop is divided in a theory session and a practical session, in the form of a live demo.

The addressed audience are engineers with a basic knowledge on automated driving who wants to gain basic knowledge on ADAS sensor. The workshop is not addressed at senior engineers.

Part 1: Theory on ADAS sensors (radar, camera, lidar, etc)

Led by Professor Arno Eichberger, Institute of Automotive Engineering, TU Graz

  • Basic principles of different ADAS sensors
  • Advantages and disadvantages
  • Signal processing
  • Applications
  • Sensor modelling for virtual test & validation
  • Live demo (IBEO XT Laserscanner )
  • Reference Measurement system
  • Genesys ADMA (Inertial Measurement Unit)

Part 2: Live demonstration of ADAS sensors in a fully equipped test car

Led by Zoltan Magosi, Institute for Automotive Engineering, TU Graz

The Series production BMW 640i has a full ADAS package, including:

ADAS sensors:

  • Continental ARS 308 combined short/long range radar in target and object mode
  • MobilEye mono camera
  • Cohda MK4 Car2X sensors

Reference Measurement system:

  • Genesys ADMA (Inertial Measurement Unit)
