Self-driving cars: The future of vehicle testing
GeneSys Elektronik GmbH

A driverless system? At GeneSys’ in Offenburg this is no longer just a pipe dream. Researchers at the German company are involved in the latest automotive development project: a car-based robotic driving system. Together with three partner companies Dewetron, Stähle and AMFD the vehicle testing of the future is
being developed. Thereby, several self-driving cars are capable of driving themselves around a controlled test circuit.

GPS Tracking with SP80: High-precision GNSS receiver for localisation of VRUs and solid objects
GeneSys Elektronik GmbH

GeneSys is offering a new turnkey solution for the development of driver assistance systems focused on the localisation of fixed objects and on vulnerable road users (VRU) participating in the road test. The achievable position accuracy is ± 2 cm. The key feature here is Spectra Precision's SP80 which was greatly enhanced in
terms of functionality and exclusively adapted to the application in a joint development with GeneSys.
The high-precision GNSS receiver is therefore perfectly suited for motion tracking of slowly moving objects such as VRUs, e.g.
pedestrians and cyclists, as well as for gauging the test environment, e.g. parking spaces or vehicle dimensions.

Centimetre-accurate, speed-triggered braking distance measurements with ADMA-Speed
GeneSys Elektronik GmbH

ADMA-Speed is the compact GPS speed sensor from GeneSys featuring inertial sensor-based technology. The braking distance sensor eliminates the well-known disadvantages of standard GPS speed sensors and therefore puts out a precise, smoothened and continuous speed signal – even with poor GPS reception. Thus, centimetre-accurate and speed-triggered braking distance measurements now are possible.
The compact unit is optimized for brake tests and supplies exact acceleration, speed and braking distance data, also the achieved
measurement accuracy. The settings for braking distance calculation are configured quickly and easily via a web browser.
With ADMA-Speed, parameter input is just as fast as the subsequent output of measured and braking distance data: in real time and directly via CAN interface and Ethernet.
In addition to braking performance specifications according to DIN now software enhancements for acceleration tests and measuring of lateral deviation are available, also in real time. At any time, ADMA-Speed can be extended to a full-fledged GPS-aided inertial
system. ADMA-Speed is small, compact and easy to install.
Thanks to these characteristics, ADMA-Speed is ideal for braking distance measurements.

New functions for GPS/Inertial platform ADMA3.0: Relative distance measurement with new Delta function for ADAS
GeneSys Elektronik GmbH

The GPS-aided gyro system ADMA of GeneSys in Germany is developed and produced specially for measurements of vehicle dynamics and driver assistance parameters in the automotive
sector. The new generation of ADMA is equipped with many new features: an output rate of 1000 Hz, a data latency less than 1
millisecond and various CAN-Bus and Ethernet interfaces.
The new DELTA function enables centimetre-accurate measurements between several vehicles in real-time. General settings now are now configured quickly and easily via a web browser. ADMA meets all the demands of industry test standards.
