This toolkit is an automated, lab based tool useful to create, configure, present and evaluate the virtual environment providing scope for repeatable and realistic like in-lab testing of different road conditions and traffic simulations.Advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS),which is an electronic system that the driver to drive and park vehicle, can be developed with by using VTD toolkit. VTD can also be used for developing automated driving systems.
VTD provides scope to generate 3D content, simulate complex traffic scenario, and simulate simplified or physically driven sensors.
The data collected from the field is used to design road network and traffic simulations. Road networks are designed using Road Network Editor (ROD) which includes number of lanes, different types of intersections, traffic signs and signals.
ADAS is an electronic system beneficial from road safety point of view. It helps drivers to drive and park vehicles safely. It uses different electronic technologies like Micro controller units (MCU), Power semiconductor devices and electronic control units to avoid human errors and develop advanced driver assistance system. This technology helps in avoiding vehicle collisions and control road accidents.
Pneumatics is the branch of Science which deals with the properties of Air, behavior of air and force applied by air. In this setup there are different types of components involved such as, compressor, Directional control valve, Flow control valve, Linear actuators such as Double acting cylinder & single acting cylinder, Solenoid valve, banana cables, switch box, relay box and so many. Electro Pneumatics is controlled by Electrical action with the help of air pressure. In this setup also there are different types of components.
Hydraulics is deals with the properties of liquid such as oil which is applied at high pressure to get the linear motion. There are different applications of Hydraulics as Hydraulic lifts, hydraulic cranes, in vehicle brakes, and so on. Likewise Electro hydraulics is controlled by Electricity with the help of oil pressure. FESTO is a German company which provided us the software called FluidSIMin which students can design different circuits used in Industrial Applications. In this setup also there are different components which include different valves, cylinders, electric switches, relays and so on.
For more than 20 years, FluidSIM has been the world's leading circuit diagram design and simulation program for pneumatics, hydraulics, and now also for electrical engineering. Being able to freely design control systems is motivating, and promotes creativity and focus. Beyond that, FluidSIM provides teachers with a wealth of text, images, and videos for multimedia-based lesson planning. Experience real-time simulations with apprentices, specialists, or students and celebrate successful learning at all levels. Following are some interesting features of FluidSIM.
EasyPort USB – An interface for measuring, open-loop control, closed-loop control. Connects the simulation to the real world. The principle is simple: the USB interface is connected to the PC. The connection to the automation equipment is via standard SysLink connectors.
