Purpose and goal

HiFi Visual Target has developed, validated and demonstrated measurement methods for optical and geometric properties of soft 3D cart targets and contributed to international standardization with methods and results.

Expected results and effects

The selected optical measurement method could not detect any significant wear on the soft 3D car target at the measurement points according to the standard. There are room for improvment by choosing measurement points at locations that shows significant wear like e.g. headlights or registration plate. The geometrical measurment method is more promising and the shape of the soft 3D car target can probably be used to measure the wear but then the geometrical definition of the 3D car target needs to be improved in the standard.

Planned approach and implementation

The Project has performed measurements on the optical and geometrical characteristics on both soft 3D car targets from DRi and 4a Technologies as well as on real cars. Accelerated ageing tests has then been performed on a soft 3D car target from DRi in order to investigate how the optical and geometrical characteristics changes over time. Handheld methods for optical and geometrical measurements has been developed, tested and evalutated.
