Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Intelligent Vehicle (IV) systems
PreScan is a software tool that was created as a development environment for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Intelligent Vehicle (IV) systems. These are systems with sensors that monitor the vehicle's surroundings, using the acquired information to take action. Such actions may range from warning the driver of a potentially dangerous situation to actively evading hazards by means of automatic braking or automatic steering.
Given a specific accident scenario, it is easy to discover the cause of the accident as well as which driver support system concept could have prevented it. By changing the weather and light conditions, or by adding disturbances such as sensor noise and sensor drift, the system's robustness can be monitored. By subjecting the intelligent system to other traffic scenarios, its side-effects become clear or even potentially discover an alternative design that performs even better!
PreScan's unique features
PreScan is a truly unique software package. There is no other tool on the market that combines:
High-fidelity simulation based on real physics.
Detailed sensor models including noise and drift.
Matlab/Simulink interface for algorithm development and vehicle dynamics model import (e.g. from CarSim or veDYNA).
Custom 3-Dimensional model import (e.g. from Google 3D Warehouse or Google SketchUp).
Data acquisition & test automation (e.g. via Matlab/Simulink, dSPACE ControlDesk or NI LabVIEW).
