ZMP Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi , hereinafter ZMP) has started selling actual 1/10 scale robot cars compatible with MATLAB / Simulink simulation today.

"RoboCar 1/10 MATLAB connection 2017" will start selling today from 200,000 yen (excluding tax). This product consists of RoboCar 1/10 2016, an autonomous driving technology development platform for real car 1/10 scale, and latest software "RoboCar 1/10 MATLAB connection 2017" compatible with MATLAB / Simulink. RoboCar 1/10 2016 is a 1/10 scale autonomous driving technology development platform of a real vehicle equipped with sensors to comprehend the surrounding environment, research and development of autonomous driving and driving support technologies, research based on autonomous movement · employees We are taking advantage of such as training. In this "RoboCar 1/10 MATLAB connection 2017", we have prepared a library for connecting MATLAB / Simulink and RoboCar 1/10 2016 and a vehicle model for route design.

In this product, by controlling RoboCar 1/10 2016 from MATLAB / Simulink program, route design on MATLAB / Simulink, simulation confirmation and comparison with actual machine becomes possible. For example, in the case of research and development of automatic traveling such as automatic parking, lane change, obstacle avoidance, etc., a route that is optimal (smooth steering operation and little lateral G) according to the position and orientation of the target is calculated, Estimate the steering angle using MATLAB / Simulink. Simulation can be performed on MATLAB / Simulink based on this steering angle, it is possible to compare the planned route with the simulation result and to control the route based on the difference. Since the same MATLAB / Simulink program allows the actual machine of RoboCar 1/10 to operate, it is possible to efficiently perform experiments using sensor data in simulation and real environments.
