DAY 2: Articulated pedestrian target with a realistic sensor signature for radar, lidar, IR and camera-based systems
Messring is presenting its latest development in the field of active safety at the expo. The company’s Astero articulated pedestrian adult target replicates a 50% male adult in terms of size, shape, realistic sensor signature and leg articulation while complying with all the specifications laid out in the NCAP and ACEA guidelines as well as the ISO 19206-2 standard.
The sensor signature is realistically reproduced for radar, lidar, camera, infrared and ultrasonic sensors simultaneously. The target has a soft, lightweight structure but is designed for collisions up to 60km/h. The movement of the legs generates a micro Doppler effect and with an ISO 19206-2 compliant connection, the target is compatible with all common carrier systems. Control and activation of the leg motion is achieved via an IP-based interface and offers quick selection of walking speeds of 3, 5 and 8km/h.
"With the Astero, we have demonstrated how test sites can get closer to the real world and VRU testing can take the next step beyond existing protocol requirements. With the Articulated Pedestrian Adult Target we now also want to provide test engineers and users with an option that is in line with the requirements in the current test protocols and convinces with the usual quality and reliability of Messring equipment," explained Dr Igor Doric, executive director of Messring Active Safety.
