Digital Road Models
Simulation software specialist, rFpro, has created a highly accurate digital twin of Mcity, a purpose-built facility at the University of Michigan for testing connected and automated vehicles and technologies under controlled, realistic conditions. The digital twin enables vehicle manufacturers and technology suppliers to accelerate development using simulation. Highly accurate correlation rFpro’s development of an accurate...
Just Auto interviews rFpro about the use of Digital Twins of proving grounds in autonomous vehicle development. Read more here https://www.just-auto.com
With the new Formula 1 season about to start, here’s a sneak preview of rFpro’s latest update for Melbourne. Built from a brand new LiDAR survey and, for the first time as part of rFpro’s Track maintenance programme, this model makes use of the physically modelled materials developed for rFpro’s ADAS and autonomous customers. This...
Engineering and Technology (E&T) the magazine of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, has published an in depth analysis of the use of rFpro digital twins for autonomous vehicle development and testing.  The article focuses on the Millbrook Proving Ground and how the Digital Twin is being used for everything from sensor development to identifying...
Millbrook is investing in the creation of a Digital Model of its Proving Ground in the UK. The model, created by rFpro, will enable vehicle manufacturers to significantly improve the development of ADAS and autonomous systems. Read the full article on Millbrook’s website here.
With F1 taking to the streets of London today in Trafalgar Square and Whitehall, it reminded us of a project from 2012 when rFpro was used to evaluate the feasibility of a London Grand Prix. This video shows a lap of the suggested route. Look out for Piccadilly, the Wellington Arch, Buckingham Palace and the...
This model has been rebuilt from a new LiDAR survey, with new graphics and a new TerrainServer HDSurface at 1cm resolution in x,y. Here are a couple of screen-grabs showing the new road surface and kerb details. The model is quite detailed but still manages to achieve 120fps on our reference hardware.
rFpro have completed another public road model, this one is in the centre of Shanghai and it is already being used for Autonomous testing. The model spans an area containing a wide selection of roads and junctions from dense urban single-carriageway to multi-lane dual carriageway, with very high correlation to the real-world. Visit us at...
The urban roads were Laser Scanned (LiDAR), with 360deg photography and video. The completed model is shipped with road networks for SUMO (Traffic) and Road5 (IPG CarMaker) as the first customers are making use of the model for ADAS and Autonomous testing, with camera, Radar, LiDAR and Ultrasound sensors as well as for training of...
Chris Hoyle, technical director at rFpro, speaks to Matthew Beecham at Just Auto, answering questions such as “How does rFpro’s digital road modelling service help vehicle manufacture?” and “What level of detail do you have to provide, in order for a simulator to be effective?” Read his answer to these questions and more on the...
