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 private session is typically held on a Saturday and runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. 

  

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 procedures and diagnostics on late-model vehicles.

 

The calibration service routines performed during training are the same services typically required following services such as windshield replacement, wheel alignment/suspension repair, tire size changes, collision repair, and service events where major vehicle disassembly is required. The forward facing camera (FFC) which typically supports functions such as LKAS, LTA, LDW, ACC may require either a static or dynamic calibration routine to be carried out. Radar sensors which are used to support various ADAS features such as AEB, ACC, RCTA, BSM, and more, may also require similar calibration procedures.

LKAS – Lane Keeping Assist System

LTA – Lane Tracing Assist

LDW – Lane Departure Warning

ACC – Adaptive Cruise Control

AEB – Automated Emergency Braking

RCTA – Rear Cross Traffic Alert

BSM – Blind Spot Monitoring 

 

ADAS Service Training

Technicians today are seeing more and more vehicles populated with various activate safety systems used to support Advanced Driver Assistance Operations such as ACC – Adaptive Cruise Control, AEB – Automated Emergency Braking, LDW – Lane Departure Warning, BSM – Blind Spot Monitoring and more. Many of the service operations such as collision repair, whindshield replacement, suspension/alignment repair, etc, performed on these late model vehicles vehicle may now require additional service steps to be carried out after service to ensure that these active safety systems are performing optimally.

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.

Radar Sensors

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).

LiDAR - LIght Detection and Ranging

This visual demo shows what the LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) imager does to map out the ground truth and objects around the vehicle.

Neural Nets, Object Detection, Classification

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.

Camera Systems

Vehicles can be equipped with mono or stereo type camera systems. Stereo camera systems can increase the depth perception and assist the neural system by an order of magnitude with object detection and classification. Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Subaru and Tesla use such cameras. In fact, Subaru’s system is called Eye-Sight and can support adaptive cruise control operations without equipping the vehicle with a forward-facing radar sensor module. 

Radar Demonstration

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.
