SprayMaker: Rain simulation for Active Safety Testing

The weather has the greatest impact on the detection of the environment - and thus on the safety of autonomous vehicles and driver assistance systems - via camera, radar and lidar. For the further development of sensors and the active safety of vehicles, MESSRING now offers an effective test tool for all suppliers and developers of sensors and driver assistance systems...
