This test car is specially dedicated to the vehicle dynamics and driver behavior study. Recent studies are done over the tire slip angle measurement and the driver eye tracking.

Eye Tracking

The eye tracking or "oculometry" is an analyzing tool which help to determine the location of someone's gaze. This information can be used to study the people behavior or for the control of a system. The MIPS laboratory is currently developing a model with contact: the system is hold by the used so that he can be mobile without perturbing the system.

Currently used test benches

Semi-vehicle vertical dynamics

This test bench objectives are multiples and should allow the validation of a MIPS-MIAM laboratory developments set. Particularly, this bench helps to test the concepts before the experimentations with one of the test car. These concepts are:

  • The vehicle dynamics modeling
  • The development of specific models related to vehicle sub-systems based on model the reduction of the global vehicle model
  • The impact over the comfort in the context of autonomous driving

This bench is focused on the tire-suspension-steering subset with solicitations applied to:

  • The steering column
  • The tire

Steering Motor

This motor helps to control the vehicle lateral behavior automatically. It possesses the following characteristics:

  • 130tr/min maximum rotational speed
  • 20N.m maximum torque
  • 24V nominal voltage(12V with degraded performance)
  • CAN-Open communication protocol

The steering angle, but also the torque can be measured thanks to an integrated torque-meter which replace the vehicle engine mechanics. This system directly coupled to the steering column avoids the use of common steering systems (sprocket, chain, belt, ...) for safety, space and maintenance reasons. In addition to lateral vehicle control tests, this motor allows testing safety strategies for steer-by-wire systems.
