Autonomous Vehicle Technology Demonstrations

We are pleased to showcase an autonomous vehicle, featuring an array of sensors, processors and software, which will be running demo laps of the Daytona Milton Keynes track at Self Driving Track Days on 10 July. Plus the developers of technologies in use will be providing attendees with the technical overviews of the kit.

Visitors and press are invited to see first-hand what the latest technology can do, how the vehicle interacts with other vehicles and environment, and talk to the engineers developing the full vehicle systems. In this intimate venue dedicated to hosting Self Driving Track Days, attendees have time to get up close and hands-on with the vehicles to learn about how they operate.

Why attend?  Who should attend?

Which vehicles are being showcased?

The vehicles will run laps of the track, and their technical staff will be onsite to explain how the technology works.

For 2018 Dataspeed will showcase their complete By-Wire control system for the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid, utilizing their proven ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) Kit, which serves as a development platform for testing autonomous vehicle applications. The ADAS Kit, is a complete hardware and software solution that allows seamless control of the vehicle’s throttle, brake, steering and shifting. To demonstrate these capabilities, the By-Wire controlled vehicle will follow precise trajectory paths using accurate, high data-rate output from a Oxford Technical Solutions RT 4003-GPS system. The algorithm behind the path following system uses adaptive control concepts to regulate the throttle and brake inputs to react to hills, air resistance and other disturbances, and nonlinear state feedback control to generate steering inputs to minimize the lateral error from the programmed route.

Why attend?

  • If you’ve never been for a ride in a car that can drive itself, you are in for an extraordinary experience.
  • A rare opportunity to get a hands-on experience in a fully autonomous vehicle, alongside the engineers who have implemented the technology.
  • You can watch videos and read about self driving cars all day, but there’s nothing to quite match the experience of sitting in a car as it drives itself around the track, navigating the corners with ease and identifying objects along the way.
  • You will get up close and personal with the technology, and gain unparalleled insight into the systems that make self-driving cars tick.

Other technology demos inside the building:

Hexagon Positioning Intelligence will be demonstrating some their professional-grade high-resolution Satellite positioning technology, and explaining why this is such a complex and difficult part of the technology in driverless cars.

Intrepid Technologies will be sharing their expertise and experience in software engineering and project management.

Only at Self Driving Track Days (10 July 2018)

Combining the track demos with the learning workshop at Self Driving Track Days is a unique experience. Connecting theory with the real world application is always difficult to achieve in a workshop environment, but by bringing both of these elements together at Daytona Milton Keynes in the UK, you can learn about the latest technologies and insight into the world of autonomous vehicles, while putting that into context by experiencing the technology in action in the demos.
