This weekend Xsens attended the First Autonomous Vehicle Track Day at Thunderhill Raceway West in Willows, California, an exciting new event organized by Angel investor and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Joshua Schachter.
Xsens was present to test MTi motion trackers’ under high performance automotive dynamics and provide expertise on IMU technology. Xsens technology is incorporated in the most advanced systems of many teams, including two teams who demonstrated autonomous driving on the track!
Our IMU product specialist Scott was able to support and observe track tests with some of these:
- Autonomous Stuff's autonomous Lincoln MKZ using an Xsens MTi-G-710
- Denso's autonomous Tesla Model S using an Xsens MTi-G-700
- PolySync's Kia measuring with an Xsens MTi-G-700
- In addition, Xsens completed extensive testing with an MTi-G-710 and MTi-3 in a Mini Cooper
Self Racing Cars, autonomous vehicles and related technologies are markets where Xsens has a firm footprint. Events like the Autonomous Vehicle Track Day will help us push our technology even further and help companies operating in this field to develop innovative and safer applications.
Xsens can provide high-end solutions for autonomous driving and related applications. For more information on the Xsens products, please visit our Xsens MTi products website.
