Pegasus: Test Procedures for Highly Automated Driving

iMAR is Member of the Pegasus Research Group: Generalized Test Standards for Automated Driving

Das deutsche Bundeswirtschaftsministerium hat in 01/2016 den Startschuss für das Forschungsprojekt Pegasus gegeben, das Teststandards für selbstfahrende Autos entwickeln soll.

PEGASUS steht in diesem Kontext für:

Projekt zur Etablierung von generell akzeptierten Gütekriterien, Werkzeugen und Methoden sowie Szenarien und Situationen zur Freigabe hochautomatisierter Fahrfunktionen.

Dabei sollen die beteiligten Firmen und Wissenschaftseinrichtungen wie Audi, BMW, Daimler, Opel, Volkswagen, Bosch, Continental, der TÜV Süd, das Institut für Verkehrssystemtechnik des DLR und das Fachgebiet Fahrzeugtechnik der TU Darmstadt allgemein akzeptierte Methoden und Werkzeuge für die Überprüfung hochautomatisierter Fahrzeugfunktionen erarbeiten.

Zu den insgesamt 14 Projektpartnern zählen auch einige klein- und mittelständische Unternehmen wie iMAR Navigation, IPG Automotive, Vires, QTronic oder TraceTronic.

Bei dem Vorhaben geht es um Systeme, die für einen gewissen Zeitraum in spezifischen Situationen die Regie übernehmen können. Der Fahrer soll dabei die Technik nicht dauerhaft überwachen müssen und so gewisse Nebentätigkeiten ausüben können. Wenn die Person hinter dem Steuer gefragt ist, fordert sie das System "mit ausreichender Zeitreserve" dazu auf, heißt es in einer einschlägigen Studie. Das hochautomatisierte Fahren auf Autobahnen mit Maximaltempo 130 Kilometern pro Stunde soll demnach bis 2020 hierzulande zumindest technisch möglich sein. Mit "vollautomatisiertem" oder gar "autonomen" Fahren auf dem breiten Markt rechnen die Forscher nicht vor 2026.

In "Pegasus" wird iMAR seine Kompetenz auf den Gebieten der inertialen Meßtechnik und Umfeldsensorik, Datenfusion und Systemintegration im Projektkonsortium zur Entwicklung geeigneter Teststandards für das automatisierte Fahren beisteuern. 

Montag, 12 Oktober 2015 iNAT-RQT-4003: High Performance Ring Laser Gyro Based Surveying & Navigation System SBB: RF Detetor Rail Vehice, being online geo-located by iMAR's iNAT-RQT-4003 Gotthard Base Tunnel: 57 km no GPS! ICE-2 at Nov-07-2015 in front of Gotthard Base Tunnel, equipped with iNAT-RQT-4003 (source: iMAR / ChRe)

SBB uses iNAT-RQT on MEWA12 to survey Gotthard Base Tunnel

SBB ortet Funkmesswagen MEWA12 online im Gotthard-Basistunnel mit iNAT-RQT

Der Funkmesswagen MEWA12 der Schweizerische Bundesbahnen (SBB) wird verwendet, um die kommerziellen sowie sicherheitsrelevanten Funknetze (GSM-R) auf Gleistrassen zu vermessen und freizugeben.

Eine besondere meßtechnische Herausforderung für SBB ist die Vermessung in langen Tunneln (z.B. Gotthard-Basistunnel [GBT] mit 57 km Länge), in denen kein GPS als Ortungsreferenz zur Verfügung steht.

Nachdem der Anwender verschiedene inertiale Ortungssysteme verschiedener Mitbewerber erfolglos in dieser Anwendung (GBT) in 2014/2015 getestet hatte, wurde iMAR aufgefordert, kurzfristig vor den Abnahmetests der Funkmeßtechnik im GBT in Q4/2015 eine entsprechende Lösung zur Verfügung zu stellen.

iMAR implementierte Anfang 10/2015 ein Gerät der Serie iNAT-RQT-4003 (INS/GNSS-Anlage mit Odometer-Unterstützung und Online-Positions-Lösung), und konnte die gewünschte Genauigkeit im Meßbetrieb nachweisen.

Die Geräte-Serie iNAT-RQT-4003 ist für die Bereiche Inertial-Navigation und -Vermessung entwickelt und basiert auf präzisen optischen Kreiseln (RLG-Technologie) und Servo-Beschleunigungssensoren. Das Gerät ist dabei "ITAR-frei" und kann im Rahmen des sog. Dual-Use weltweit eingesetzt werden.

Das iNAT-RQT-4003 zeichnet sich u.a. aufgrund seiner geringen Kreiseldrift und der integrierten umfangreichen Datenfusionsalgorithmen durch eine hohe Genauigkeit auch dann aus, wenn GPS über lange Zeiten (z.B. 1 Stunde) nicht verfügbar ist, wie es bei aufwendigen Vermessungen mit Rangierzyklen in Tunneln die Regel ist. 

Seit dem 06.11.2015 vermessen die Schweizerische Bundesbahnen (SBB) und die Deutsche Bahn (DB) gemeinsam auch auf einem ICE-2 mit iMAR's iNAT-RQT-4003 die Funkabdeckung im GBT.

Bei der Deutschen Bahn sind bereits seit über 10 Jahren Inertialmeßsysteme der Baureihe iNAV-RQH-4003 im Gleismeßwagen "RailLab" und anderen Meßzügen im Einsatz du durch die Deutsche Bahn bzgl. ihrer hohen Genauigkeit für den eigenen Einsatz zertifiziert. 

Die aktuelle Position des MEWA97 kann online im Internet verfolgt werden:

English Abstract:

The RF detector rail vehicle MEWA12 of Schweizerische Bundesbahnen (SBB) has implemented iMAR's iNAT-RQT-4003 in 10/2015 as position and heading reference to survey the RF distribution of GSM-R and commercial GSM on SBB's railway network. The system provides position, heading and velocity even during GNSS outages of more than 1 hour with high accuracy and in real-time. Typical applications are surveying and geo-Location determination in real-time within deep valleys, urban canyons or long tunnels like the Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) with 57 km length, where it is just used to certify the RF installation of GSM-R.

Since 06.11.2015 German Rail (DB) uses also the iNAT-RQT-4003 (beside of iMAR's iNAV-RQH-4003 , which is installed sinces more than 10 years successfully on the "RailLab" and other surveying Trains of German Rail) on the ICE-2 high speed train to Survey the GSM-R availability on the rails in the GBT and other tunnels.

The iMAR navigation & surveying systems provide solutions where competitive systems failed under same conditions due to missing accuracy, reliability and support.   

The iNAT-RQT-4003 is free of any ITAR regulations and can be exported under simplified "dual-use" regulations worldwide.

Freitag, 24 Juli 2015 iMAR sponsert Denkmal für Hermann Anschütz-Kaempfe, Erfinder des Kreiselkompass

A Memorial to the Inventor of the Gyro Compass H. Anschütz-Kaempfe

iMAR sponsert Kreisel-Denkmal zum Andenken an Hermann Anschütz-Kaempfe in Zweibrücken

1908 wurde erstmals ein Kreiselkompaß auf einem Schiff als Nordreferenz eingesetzt - es war auf dem deutschen Linienschiff SMS Deutschland.

Erfinder des Kreiselkompasses ist der 1872 in Zweibrücken geborene Hermann Anschütz-Kaempfe. Ohne ein solches "Gyro Compassing" zur präzisen Navigation wäre der folgende Ausbau der Schiffahrt kaum denkbar gewesen.

Engagierte Bürger der Stadt Zweibrücken und Professoren der dortigen Hochschule entwickelten die Idee, ein Denkmal für diesen berühmten Sohn der Stadt zu errichten. iMAR Navigation hat dieses Vorhaben bzgl. Design und Finanzierung großzügig unterstützt.

Seit Juli 2015 kann man das Denkmal in Zweibrücken auf der öffentlichen Zufahrt zur Hochschule (nahe dem Observatorium) sehen. Eine Gedenktafel erinnert an den Erfinder und Unternehmer H. Anschütz-Kämpfe, der 1931 in München starb. Das Unternehmen "Anschütz" (heute ein Teil des US Konzerns Raytheon Marine) ist noch heute in Kiel tätig.

 

PS: Zweibrücken liegt in Rheinland-Pfalz, an der östlichen Grenze des Saarlandes und 20 km entfernt vom Hauptsitz der iMAR Navigation GmbH in St. Ingbert.

Freitag, 12 Juni 2015 iMAR's facilities, scanned with p3d's ProScan Kinematic Laser Scanner (using an iMAR IMS) iMAR Navigation facilities in St. Ingbert: 2'250 m² production and design area within 3 connected buildings (A, B, C)

iMAR Technology for ProScan, p3d's most advanced Kinematic Laser Scanning Solution

Inertial Measuring and Synchronization Solution for Kinematic Laser Scanning

p3d Systems, a worldwide leading company providing kinematic laser scanning solutions for advanced surveying applications, launches their latest product ProScan. The product is based on p3d's most sophisticated system design and application software, supported by iMAR's advanced inertial measurement and synchronization technology.

The Kinematic Laser Scanning solution from p3d reduces the “time to results” from days to hours by scanning as the system moves through a site. p3d’s solution does not require special scan targets or office registration that sometimes comes with static scanning. The ProScan system works indoors and outdoors and can be operated successfully after only a short introduction. The net result is typically an order-of-magnitude reduction in field and office time for capturing and preparing dense 3D data for various applications and industries.

The picture shows the kinematic scan of iMAR facilities in St. Ingbert, obtained in May 2015, where the ProScan system had been simply manually moved along a line in front of the buildings to gather all data.

p3d's ProScan supports laser scanners from FARO (Faro Focus3D X Series), Leica, Z+F.
