Danlaw, Inc. (Danlaw) and NextDroid, Inc. (NextDroid) have joined forces to expand advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle (AV) development and validation activities.
The advancement and complexity of ADAS and AV features require data from numerous vehicle sensors, according to the companies. The existing validation methods tend to be expensive, not scalable and centered on final validation.
Leveraging 37 years of Danlaw automotive engineering and connected vehicle experience, and the NextDroid Veritas ground truth platform, the collaboration will provide automotive OEMs and their tier-one suppliers in the Detroit area with a turn-key ADAS and AV verification. Both companies believe the use of this platform enables customers to bring features to market with greater safety, in less time and much more cost-effectively than legacy methods. Over the past 36 years Danlaw has built an industry leading reputation for testing electronic control modules (ECUs) to automotive safety integrity level (ASIL) standards, according to the company.
“NextDroid’s Veritas platform will leverage Danlaw’s understanding of modern automotive OEMs architectures to provide support and integration services across advanced heterogeneous sensors,” said Thierry Rolina, Danlaw senior account manager.
