Active Safety and ADAS Testing


Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) testing for automotive vehicles is crucial to ensure the proper functionality, reliability, and safety of these systems.

ADAS technologies are designed to enhance vehicle safety and improve driving experience by providing features such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and more.

Here are the main types of ADAS testing for automotive vehicles:

Sensor Testing
  • Radar Testing: Evaluates the performance and accuracy of radar sensors used for functions like adaptive cruise control and collision avoidance.
  • Lidar Testing: Assesses the effectiveness of lidar sensors in detecting obstacles, pedestrians, and other vehicles.
  • Camera Testing: Validates the performance of cameras for lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, and object detection.
  • Ultrasonic Sensor Testing: Verifies the functionality of ultrasonic sensors used for parking assistance and proximity detection.


Functional Testing
  • Lane Keeping Assistance: Tests the vehicle’s ability to maintain its position within a lane and issue warnings or corrective actions when necessary.
  • Automatic Emergency Braking: Validates the system’s ability to detect imminent collisions and apply the brakes to avoid or mitigate the impact.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Assesses the system’s capability to maintain a safe following distance and adjust vehicle speed based on traffic conditions.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring: Verifies the accuracy of sensors in detecting vehicles in blind spots and issuing appropriate warnings.
Human-Machine Interface (HMI) Testing
  • User Experience Evaluation: Assesses the clarity, intuitiveness, and effectiveness of visual and audible alerts and prompts provided to the driver.
  • Driver Engagement Testing: Determines how effectively the driver interacts with the ADAS features, such as responding to warnings and taking control when needed.

Environmental Testing
  • Different Driving Conditions: Tests ADAS performance under various weather conditions (rain, snow, fog), lighting conditions (day, night), and road surfaces (dry, wet, slippery).
  • Interference and Obstruction Testing: Evaluates how well sensors and systems function when exposed to interference from other vehicles, buildings, or environmental factors.


Integration Testing
  • Ensures seamless integration of various ADAS components and their coordination to avoid conflicts or unexpected behaviours.

Scenario Testing
  • Simulates real-world driving scenarios and situations to validate the ADAS system’s responses and performance.
Cybersecurity Testing
  • Assesses the vulnerability of ADAS systems to cyber threats and hacking attempts, ensuring the security and privacy of vehicle occupants.


Software and Firmware Testing
  • Validates the correctness and reliability of ADAS software and firmware updates to ensure consistent and safe performance.


Regulatory and Compliance Testing
  • Ensures that ADAS features meet relevant safety standards and regulations set by governing bodies.
