We’re thrilled to announcea new partnership to work with The University of Texas at Austin on their Situation-Aware Vehicular Engineering Systems (SAVES) initiative. We’ll supply technology to accelerate research on automated and self-driving cars, and also play a key role in advancing autonomous driving.
We’re helping provide technology for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and communication test by combining our second-generation VST with upconverters and downconverters designed to test the radar band.
Engineers can use this LabVIEW-based system for a variety of uses, including radar target emulation and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing. It’s essential for making self-driving cars safer and more reliable by testing both hardware and software across multiple sensors.
SAVES, an initiative within the UT Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG), works with the UT Center for Transportation Research (CTR) to advance vehicle engineering. This includes the fusion of data, discovery of the relevance of data, and communication of data-- bringing these together to enhance driving.
Robert W. Heath Jr., director of the SAVES initiative and UT Engineering professor, said “SAVES is bringing companies at the intersection of wireless communication, sensing, and automotive together with stellar faculty and students at UT Austin.”
UT Austin is the University of Texas’ flagship school, and includes nine universities and six health institutions in Texas. Ranked among the greatest research universities in the country, UT Austin is home to more than 51,000 students and 3,000 faculty. The university is also one of the top 20 public universities according to U.S. News & World Report, with many of its graduate and undergrad programs ranked among the top 10 nationwide.
