Founded in March 2017, the ADAS iiT group is the first to present cost-optimized consolidated ADAS test solutions for virtual test drive combining Sensor Fusion, Hardware in the Loop (HiL) , V2X Communication, GNSS Simulation and Integrated Data Management Systems. This unique NI platform based concept will help bring autonomous vehicles to the market safer and faster than expected.
Together, the exceptional expertise in ADAS Sensor Fusion of Konrad Technologies GmbH, on HiL of SET GmbH, on V2X Communication and GNSS Application of S.E.A. Datentechnik GmbH, and on Data Management of measX GmbH & Co. KG form a complete, flexible set of tools from design to development, implementation and validation to production.
With more than 300 engineers in Europe, Asia and USA we will work on the next steps towards a complete test of fully autonomous vehicles in a virtual environment. The ADAS iiT group delivers ADAS turnkey, end-to-end solutions from one single source.
The ADAS iiT group is an established supplier for the leading companies worldwide with deep competencies in different technologies. We have the know how to support validation and verification across the product life cycle, for the various industries related to ADAS.

measX GmbH & Co. KG
For more than 20 years the engineers of measX offer their experience and technical know-how in software development and the engineering of complete test systems. We offer consultation services and turnkey systems for the acquisition, organisation, management, and evaluation of measured data. Turnkey systems will be adapted optimally to your data and IT environment. This includes the analysis of the data to be processed and of the work sequences to be supported, as well as data modeling, database design, and the creation of complete applications for the acquisition and evaluation of data. We use National Instrument standard software like DIAdem® and LabVIEW to create turnkey systems that may range from single station solutions to sophisticated applications for several hundred users.
We thrive to provide ideal solutions for testing Sensor Fusion which offers timing, triggering, validation and synchronization capabilities all in one. A combination of these technologies with HiL, V2X, and highly efficient data management systems will go a long way to set very high standards in the automotive industry, and I am very excited that ADAS iiT is at the forefront of these technological innovations.
Michael Konrad, CEO Konrad Technologies GmbH
As real test drives are highly time-consuming, require a lot of test driver resources, and cannot be repeated to 100%, virtual test drives are inevitable to test today’s sensors and sensor fusion electronic control units (ECU) for the future autonomous driving. Therefore, we bring in our domain expertise regarding highly complex, innovative ADAS HIL test solutions and are thrilled to be part of this leading cooperation.
Frank Heidemann, CEO SET GmbH
V2X is becoming an integrated part of future vehicles and ADAS systems. Testing along the development chain requires the in-depth expertise of RF and V2X protocols, as well as system interaction with other sensors like GNSS, RADAR or LIDAR. Respecting these requirements S.E.A. has decided to cooperate closely with leading NI partners adding new core competences to provide on-the-edge test systems and development support world-wide.
Dr. Gerd Schmitz, CEO S.E.A. Datentechnik GmbH
Testing of multiple ADAS sensors as well as complete vehicles in real situations produces a lot of data which need to be transformed into information. measX as a long-term specialist in technical data management and analysis is proud to bring in its expertise into this cooperation.
Dr. Joachim Hilsmann, CEO measX GmbH & Co. KG
We are pleased to see NI’s open platform and ecosystem empower the four ADAS IIT engineering companies to address the increasing testing complexity of highly integrated, fully automated ADAS HIL test solutions, covering sensor fusion and target simulation as well as V2X communication and GNSS simulation.
