The official welcome center for SunTrax
Purpose-built to serve as your home base
Steep, complex angles, and multiple blind spots
Three-lane continuous loop track for merging and weaving
2.25-mile track that pushes speeds of up to 70 mph
Simulate a variety of intersection geometries and configurations
Multi-modal passenger transfers, including airports, hotels, and transit centers
Complex intersections, roundabouts, driveways, and other geometric conditions
Eight surfaces that test sensor exposure to noise, vibrations, and surface harshness
24-acre paved immersive, computer-generated environment
Multiple pavement surfaces configured to test under low friction conditions
Elevated 360-degree observation of the track and infield testing activities
With the ability to test up to 50 vehicles and eight users simultaneously, the Technology Pad is the ideal environment for processing multiple digital simulations including high-speed crash avoidance scenarios, basic sensor configurations, and Kinematic and LiDAR-Radar detection testing. There is also the capability of replicating a variety of real-world geometric configurations in a controlled testing environment due to hardware-in-the-loop testing. This feature allows you to set new boundaries by simulating countless automated arrangements, such as buildings, pedestrians, traffic patterns, and multiple vehicle types. With over 774,000 ft2 (23,5915 m2) of asphalt, you can test countless preemptive behaviors in a variety of real-world scenarios.
Additional Testing Capabilities include but are not limited to:
V2V and V2X Testing
Complex Geometry Testing
Early System Interaction
Complex Collision Analysis
Digital Urban Testing
Locking Device Testing
Junction Collision Evaluations
The Technology Pad delivers an ideal platform to test advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as automated braking, active park assist, blind spot detection, and collision avoidance.
The sophisticated design slope of 0.3% pushes testing confidence to factor in additional environmental variables when testing vehicle dynamics through a temporary handling course, slalom tests, and a lane change course.
The following AASHTO classifications for this sector are based on turning radii and other geometric constraints.
