AB Dynamics have come up with a new track testing software (RC v8. 15.1) with groups for testing Euro NCAP AEB 2020 protocols.
The software also has new test groups for NHTSA CIB (Crash Imminent Braking), C-NCAP AEB Car-To-Car along with Euro NCAP Cut-in tests for use with preliminary AD (autonomous driving).
One of the benefits of this software will the increased support for LaunchPad due to a new Synchro operation mode ‘Synchro start’ which provides an automatically synchronised start time between multiple vehicles.
Some of the benefits of the released software can be stated as auto returns available for GST, SCT and LaunchPad products for more test types, support for PolySync DriveKit for use with Kia Niro and Kia Soul, new speed calculation method - vector velocity at front axle, three new gear types, power sequence group available as a beta product for advanced path networks and triggering, new path-following longitudinal speed or distance control option, additional support for LaunchPad, and ‘Synchro start’.
RC v8.15.1, PowerPMAC v8.15.1, and TurboPMAC v8.15.3 are the new publicly available versions currently. NHTSA CIB, C-NCAP AEB Car to Car 2018, EuroNCAP AEB VRU 2020, Euro NCAP AEB Car-to-Car 2020, and Cut-in tests for use with preliminary Euro NCAP AD (autonomous driving) are the new test groups added.
Post-processing will be available for NHTSA CIB 2015. Post-processing will be available for other groups like Euro NCAP 2020 in the coming few months.
