Simulation Based Design and Development of Test Track for ADAS Functions Verification and Validation with Respect to Indian Scenario 2019-26-0100
Abstract: Autonomous vehicles perform various functions with their own control strategies.
Functions like Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping system (LKS) and Forward
Collision Warning System (FCWS) requires special test tracks for their verification and
validation. These test track requirements changes with region to region according to available
This paper deals with the design and development of test tracks for different ADAS function
verification and validation for Indian specific scenarios and its simulation in IPG CarMaker.
The test track conceptualisation has been done through the understanding and study of different
international standards and geometry of test tracks for Indian conditions have been developed.
IPG CarMaker software tool is used for creation of test track, and same track is used for
simulation of above ADAS functions in IPG CarMaker. It is used as a scenario editor which
can also simulate ECU and respond to sensor inputs dynamically which is not possible with
other simulation environments. It creates a repeatable test scenarios for particular function. IPG
CarMaker is used to generate the required test track conditions in an animated view to which
the Matlab / Simulink control strategies have been linked to test different ADAS functions on
developed test tracks.
This developed test track along with validated vehicle plant model in IPG-CarMaker and
control strategies in Matlab / Simulink for above ADAS functions will be the best tool for
verification and validation of autonomous features at laboratory level.
