The way to data acquisition
Data acquisition plays an important role in the VVM project. It was started at the beginning of this year and will be continued in the coming weeks and months. This is another important step in the progress of the project.
In order to ensure that the data acquisition with the test vehicles takes place in the most targeted manner possible, many preparations have been made in recent weeks. The functional use cases (FUC) are of particular importance. Each use case covers different scenarios - for example, concealed pedestrians or cyclists. Furthermore, there are two types of requirements for the planned data acquisition: Semantic Requirements that specify constraints of the content (What do I want to see in the data?) and technical requirements that specify the constraints of the system and its sensors (How can I see it?).
Based on the functional use cases and the requirements, a route is then analyzed and planned for the test vehicle. An initial route of this kind has now been defined in the project - further adjustments must of course follow. However, another important step towards data acquisition has already been taken. In the coming weeks, further routes will be planned and important data will be collected for the project.
