From 19 to 21 September, 2017, Testing Expo - Automotive - China was held
at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center. This expo is
one of the largest vehicle testing expo in China where the latest testing,
development, and verification technologies gather from around the world.
Furthermore, this international event is held also in Europe, America,
Korea, and in every other year in India, and is very important show for
car manufacturers and their suppliers. This year, a lot of technologies
related to ADAS (Advanced driver-assistance systems) and test simulation
were exhibited in addition to the existing automotive testing related technologies
such as quality and durability verification. It shows that more people
have interest in these technologies.
Forum8 showcased its technologies at this event for the second time following
last year. At the booth, Forum8 displayed the UC-win/Road and its simple
simulator based solutions for automotive testing including a steering controlled
simulation and an algorithm verification for ADAS and provided the Oculus
A little bad weather may have caused the small number of visitors. However,
many of the visitors had interests in ADAS as expected. Forum8 received
questions about a driving simulation and an ADAS verification system cooperating
with the UC-win/Road. Some companies had considerations of the verification
for IoT related communication and the development of new functions for
hybrid cars and EV cars.
Next to the Forum8 booth, TOYO Corporation, which is one of the domestic
users of Forum8 product, ran a booth and displayed the Smart Eye Pro System
cooperating with the UC-win/Road. The system can measure motion of head,
direction of line of view, and opening and closing of eyelids by using
camera. Forum8 and TOYO Corporation are planning to run a larger booth
In China, Forum8 has subsidiaries in Shanghai and Qingdao. Usability, functionality,
and convenience are highly evaluated by many users in the fields of ITS,
automobile, and traffic. In next UC-win/Road Ver.13, enhancement of road
modeling function and driving simulation function are planned. We continue
to make further efforts in order to provide better products.
