The Ultra Flat Overrunable (UFO) robot platform and its complementary self-driving robot provide the perfect testing solutions for development of active safety systems and it's the official tool designated by Euro NCAP for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) testing.
During the development of UFO, special attention was paid to ensure optimum testing efficiency and ease of servicing of the system. The UFO was specifically designed with removable ramps for ease of transportation and storage, and therefore can be readily transported with any standard minivan-sized vehicle. The removable batteries also facilitate continuous testing, eliminating downtime for recharge and enable replacement batteries to charge at a slower rate - thus extending battery life.In addition, the UFO is designed with one central cover plate that can be effortlessly removed with just a few screws, which allows for easy and quick access to all internal components. The entire system is also made to be 100% waterproof for easy cleaning and maintenance, especially when tests are performed under less than favorable conditions.
