The definitive version of ADAS development tool!

Indoor robot car development tool introduced to over 300 companies and universities.

RoboCar® 1/10
Dedicated lithium-ion battery


RoboCar® 1/10 is the latest model of the RoboCar® series which has been well received by automobile / parts manufacturers, university, research and educational institutions since its launch in 2009.

It has Front wide-angle camera, IR sensor, Acceleration/Gyro sensor, four-wheel encoder installed. In development, the environment is enriched compared with the conventional products by supporting on-board development, increasing the disk capacity, supporting the latest WiFi, etc., making smoother R & D and experiments possible.


It is equipped with monocular camera (× 1), infrared sensor (× 8), laser range sensor (maximum × 2, optional) as external sensor and can be used for sensing around the vehicle. Moreover, by installing acceleration/gyro sensor, encoder (wheel × 4, motor × 1, steering × 1) it is possible to grasp the behavior and mileage of the vehicle.
In the development environment, libraries such as acquisition of various sensor information, speed / steering angle control, communication, etc., are available.
With these libraries, customers are free to develop applications.
It can be utilized in research and development such as Autonomous driving, remote control, sensing.

Optional Product

RoboCar® 1/10 Remote control package

Remote control of RoboCar® 1/10 becomes possible by using the controller under the wireless communication environment.

This product is based on a 1/10 scale robotic car "RoboCar® 1/10", a set of exclusive PC, Wi - Fi router, steering controller. It is equipped with remote control technology which is regarded as a required function in completely unmanned (Level 4), and it enables products to be immediately developed and researched in radio environment after purchase.

A monocular camera, an infrared sensor and a laser range sensor are installed as the external sensor in the above "RoboCar® 1/10" vehicle. Acceleration / Gyro sensor and encoder make it possible to grasp the behavior and mileage of the vehicle. In addition, libraries such as acquisition of various sensor information for Autonomous Driving development, speed / steering angle control, communication, etc., are prepared. With these libraries, customers can freely develop applications.

With the MATLAB / Simulink program, we can design a route from the current position to any position and orientation. For example, in the case of research and development of Autonomous Driving such as automatic parking, lane change and obstacle avoidance, the optimum route is calculated (the steering wheel operation is smooth and the lateral G is small) according to the position and the direction of the target and estimate the steering angle using MATLAB / Simulink using the vehicle two-wheel model.

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.

* MATLAB connection option does not correspond to RealTime Workshop.
