Thanks to the great support of the Deges company, LFT was able to use a bypass highway of the city of Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance, which is currently being completed, for an extensive test program of environmental perception.
An LFT vehicle equipped with radar, laser and camera systems was used on the highway for several hours to detect small relevant obstacles.
The aim of this test series is to identify and evaluate relevant dangerous obstacles from non-relevant harmless obstacles (false positives). More than 50 approaches on euro-pallets, brooms, fast food bags or grass tufts were carried out at three different speeds. In addition, the aim was to gain further insights into whether the obstacles are detected in time and whether the systems react correctly.
