Safe Autonomous Driving: ASTERO Pedestrian Target and 6D Target Mover

The workshop will introduce MESSRING´s new Active Safety Test Robot ASTERO and the 6D Target Mover System. The 6D Target Mover enables the test of a variety of new pedestrian AEB scenarios, including direction changes, velocity changes and level changes from the sidewalk to the street.

In combination with ASTERO advanced pedestrian detection and AEB systems can be tested including features like path prediction and the detection of pre-indicators like the chest angle modification. Furthermore the 6D Target Mover can also be used to move bicycle targets within the defined test area including the typical replication of the leaning in the curve during direction changes when riding a bicycle.
