Terranet and AstaZero to Develop New ADAS Testing Methods

The Swedish government’s innovation agency, Vinnova has awarded a grant to Terranet and AstaZero to develop new testing methods for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

This project aims to improve road safety by ensuring ADAS technologies are effective in protecting vulnerable road users.

The tested technologies will thus include pedestrian detection and avoidance and blind spot monitoring systems.

AAA forecasts that 37 million crashes could be prevented over the next 30 years using ADAS

Ultimately, the collaboration between Terranet and AstaZero (a testbed owned by the Research Institutes of Sweden) envisions that its new methods could become part of the Euro NCAP assessment programme.

The innovation grant from Vinnova is valued at 190,000 SEK (16,000 EUR).

Magnus Andersson, CEO of Terranet said:

“It is important that testing and evaluation methods for ADAS keep up as the development of autonomous vehicles and new mobility solutions accelerates. Higher standards are needed when new technologies enter the market and as urban traffic becomes increasingly complex. I am pleased that we now have the opportunity to contribute with our expertise on what it takes to elevate the methods to the next level.”

This project will build upon Terranet’s experience in developing its BlincVision anti-collision system.
