ADAS Service Training
C&D Owner, Scott Brown has partnered with AESwave.com and is providing hands-on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems training for their customers at the C&D facility.
A one-day service training course is offered at no charge for customers purchasing ADAS support tool systems. (1)
The session is usually held on a Saturday and runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. AES will provide transportation and housing as part of this offering.
Students will receive an overview of machine vision, and the sensory systems used on vehicles that enable them to intelligently understand and deal with objects residing in the world coordinates around the vehicle. A great part of the session will be performing hands-on calibration processes on late-model vehicles. The calibration service routines performed are the same needed following windshield replacement where the forward facing camera (FFC) supporting LKAS, LTA, LDW operations and when radars sensors are replaced supporting functions such as ACC, LCA, BSM and more.

ADAS technologies continue to evolve requiring the professional service technician to increase their knowledge and skill needed to address the challenges these embedded systems present.

ADAS Visuals for Training on Perception Systems
Check out this video training session presented at the 2020 California Automotive Teachers Conference on October 17th. Scott Brown provided educators with information on some of the visual tools he and AESwave use in their ADAS training courses.
Gain a deeper understanding on how radar sensors work and how they’re used to help the vehicle on-board perception systems understand the space around the vehicle.
Some vehicle services require that the radar sensor be recalibrated such as following a wheel alignment, sensor removal, sensor replacement, etc. Performing these calibrations will help to increase the accuracy and overall performance of the radar sensor so that it can support the system operational design domain (ODD).
This video snippet provides insight on computer vision and radar operation. It demonstrates how object detection and classification works in computer vision and also provides some insight into how radar is able to estimate distance and track objects just like modern automobiles do today.
Vehicles can be equipped with mono or stereo type camera systems. Stereo camera systems provide mush better depth perception. Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Subaru and Tesla use such cameras. In fact, Subaru’s system is called Eye-Sight and can enable adaptive cruise control without equipping the vehicle with a forward-facing radar sensor module.
The animation you see here is from a development board we use during ADAS education as part of the AESwave training program. The chart on the left is the azimuth range plot and the chart on the right is demonstrating the power being reflected back form the two calibration trihedral reflectors we have placed in the scene. This is similar to what takes place when the ACC radar sensor requires calibration on a vehicle.
