Automated Driving Systems

TRC Inc. has a variety of facilities that have been used for driving automation system testing. These include a 7.5-mile (12 kilometer) high-speed test track, numerous handling courses, low-speed circuit, winding road course, and 9,000-foot (2743 meter) skid pad. During the first years of TRC, an Ohio State Professor, Robert Fenton, tested early automatic steering system up to 85mph using electric guide wire technology. The grooves from this testing remain in the Skid Pad today as a reminder of the advanced technology research and development embedded into the DNA of TRC. TRC Inc.’s Advanced Mobility team is continuously reviewing existing literature on the framework for validating ADS safety and performance, and has a thorough understanding of the nuances of ADS evaluation. TRC Inc.’s experience in developing comprehensive evaluation programs, results in a proven process for developing tests tailored to the system’s Operational Design Domain, which can be executed in simulation, on TRC’s closed-course, and evaluated in on-road deployment.
