Inhuman Accuracy Enhance Durability Test Precision and Repeatability


Protect Test Drivers With Proving Ground Automation


Improve Safety & Accuracy

"...our only objective was to create a solution that allows for this type of intense off-road testing that could take our vehicles to the most extreme limits of their engineering while ensuring the safety of all involved."

Robotic Durability & Misuse Testing

Leverage robotic hardware and software for durability and misuse test events.



Nav

Nav

Nav is a system of electro-mechanical components that convert a test vehicle from manual to robotic control. Testers can quickly install or remove Nav with few, if any, modifications to the vehicle itself.



Mobius™

Mobius™

Experience Mobius, the world's most advanced command & control software system for proving ground automation. Testers can create and execute detailed testing events that coordinate multiple unmanned and manned vehicles in the same location or at various locations around a proving ground. Choreograph vehicle interactions, monitor vehicle health, gather test data, and execute accurate, repeatable test events from one software system.



Proving Ground Automation

ASI's universal automation technology has been used to automate most consumer vehicle types for testing, including: sedans, trucks, SUVs, and vans.





Sedan

Sedan

From first entry into the proving ground industry, ASI's technology has been leveraged most for durability and misuse tests on consumer sedans.


SUV

SUV

The rugged build and off-road potential of SUVs make them a key focus for durability testers and a key candidate for robotic testing programs.



Truck

Truck

From consumer to commercial grade trucks, ASI's proving ground automation technology has been used to automate various truck models.


Van

Van

Heavily entrenched in European markets and gaining steam in the U.S., commercial vans have recently been a focus for robotic durability testing.



How it works

How it works

Each unmanned test vehicle is equipped with a series of hardware and software components that permit a user to toggle between manual and robotic control. Once installed, a remote operator has control over the critical vehicle functions of ignition, transmission, steering, braking, and acceleration. The automotive vehicle kit is designed for fast installation and removal and is durable enough to withstand testing across many test vehicles.



Advanced Path Planning

Use advanced path-generating algorithms in Mobius to generate complex testing events with full control over all vehicle functions. Create accurate, repeatable scenarios involving sharp turns, quick acceleration or braking, and other critical test variables.




Proving ground test engineers can use Mobius to create vehicle events at specific locations on the path and gather data for event analysis.
