Purpose and goal

The prestudy aims to investigate what requirements apply on chassis dynamometers, test objects and the simulated environment, when verifying active safety systems, as well as appreciate what benefits such methodology might bring. Further, the prestudy should compile possibilities and limitations, using ´Vehicle-In-The-Loop´ testing specifically in chassis dynamometers, when verifying functionality in active safety systems. The finished project´s main objective is to establish a project idea with an OEM or tier 1 supplier that can be applied to FFI in June 2020.

Expected results and effects

The prestudy expects to bring long term effects on more efficient test methodologies for active safety systems in vehicles. Short term effects are further cooperation in terms of projects investigating test methodologies for active safety systems. The result should be a comparative review and specification of methodology and equipment necessary for the studied methodology compared to test track testing. The resulting analysis acts as foundation for further projects within the domain where theoretical findings are converted to practical actions.

Planned approach and implementation

The prestudy initiates through a literature study, compiling previous activities within the domain as well as mapping key persons for future correspondence. Further an analysis of methodology and equipment relating to the holistic test configuration is performed, this analysis should identify what essential components and functionality are necessary for such a configuration. The test configuration is further specified according to established test protocols. Finally a time and resource comparison is performed between ´Vehicle-in-The-Loop´ and traditional testing.
