Abstract

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are technologies that provide drivers with essential information or take over difficult and repetitive tasks. They contribute to improving road safety and increasing driving comfort. Apart from the technical development challenges, training and demonstration of ADAS in safe environments are important concerns for automobile manufacturers and suppliers. This paper presents the concept and prototypical implementation of an innovative training station for learning ADAS with driving simulators. The training station has a scalable and modular architecture, so that more than one driving simulator can be connected to a common instructor unit. Fully immersive visualization is provided by utilizing head-mounted displays for the participating driving simulators. The instructor unit consists of a computer with a developed software tool for session control, monitoring, and evaluation. Moreover, the instructor can use a head-mounted display and participate within the same virtual environment of a selected trainee. A simulation model for an autonomous driving system was implemented and a group of test persons were involved to show the usability and validity of the developed training station for ADAS learning and demonstration.
