The vehicle testing department within DAF, executes tests in the arias of functionality, durability and reliability. The chassis group within vehicle testing is focussed on functional testing of chassis mounted components, constructions and systems such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), the steering system, brake system and vehicle lighting.?
Problem description:
Testing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is challenging, as the environmental conditions that appear in reality are manifold and complex. Testing only on the road is not feasible since it is expensive and difficult to reproduce results. Additional virtual tests based on environment simulations are therefore required. These simulations are based on scenarios representing real world situations that provide ground truth data to sensors or sensor models for the environmental perception.


  • How can real world scenarios being recorded and converted to simulation scenarios in a virtual world, by using and (if necessary) expanding the current available tool chain at DAF?
  • What is the approach to take to multiply a converted real life scenario and when is sufficient test coverage reached? Which tool set is required?
  • Create a set of most relevant simulation scenarios and multiply these.??
