SafeTRANS owns key simulation and validation platforms covering all
modes of transport.
The railway laboratory RailSiTe® offers the opportunity
to analyze operations control systems along with various operational
concepts. A validation of the interoperability of components
from different suppliers can be achieved. The laboratory’s
modular structure ensures flexibility and extensibility.
Since 2004 the institute including the RailSiTe®
is certificated as inspection body of the Notified Body Interoperability
and ATTAS Ground System: Hardware-in-the-loop system simulator
with original VFW 614 cockpit for testing of new assistance
and automation systems.
is a vehicle dedicated to the analysis of drivers' behaviour
and their cognitive processes in road traffic. It is equipped
with a variety of sensors to measure and record the surrounding
traffic scenario, the gaze direction of the driver, his actions,
his workload and the resulting behaviour of the vehicle. This
equipment enables researchers to model drivers' behaviour and
to study safety and acceptance of assistance systems.
Driving Simulator is used for the validation of assistance
functions in an advanced state of development. The realistic
design of the simulator provides a valid evaluation of the functions
also for critical situations and therewith a secure transfer
to the testing vehicle and to real traffic. The driving simulator
generates a realistic driving feeling by three parameters: an
efficient motion system, a high quality projection system with
visualisation and the integration of a complete vehicle.
Reality Labor. The VR-Lab consists of an immersive display
(Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) and suiting computer-hardware.
By using stereo projection and a head tracking device it is
possible to display a holographic simulation of a car cockpit
and a virtual landscape. The VR-Lab allows rapid prototyping
of new assistance systems in life-like conditions and appearance.
