Tecnalia's Automotive Cybersecurity Facilities



Functional Components Description

Fleet of 3 MODEL CARS (VELOX CARS) that allow to evaluate safety (safety) and cybersecurity functions in the early stages of the development of automotive functions. Designed in collaboration with vehicle manufacturers, they represent the real vehicle scaled to 1: 8 0.

These vehicles are composed of sensors like cameras, control units (Electronic Control Unit - ECU) and actuators capable of reproducing the behavior of real vehicles facilitating the road to highly automated driving, passing through more traditional systems such as the control of the engine.

Fleet of 3 Model Cars (Velox Cars), each of them with the following Hardware and Software configuration:

  • HARDWARE COMPONENTS: Losi 8IGHT-E: 1/8-Scale 4WD Buggy (Base vehicle body): - Scale: 1:8 - Length: 497 mm - Width: 308 mm - Height: 180 mm - Wheelbase: 323 – 327 mm - Wheel Size: Diameter: 83.5mm, Width: 42mm - Shock Type: 15mm Bore Threaded Composite - Drivetrain: 4WD All-Metal Shaft Driven - Motor: Fuze 1/8 Scale 2500KV Brushless Sensorless Motor - Servo: 9KG Servo, Waterproof, 23T - 2x LiPo battery pack (7.4V, 2 cells, 5000mAh) Sensory: - Ultrasonic sensor (front view) - Camera (front view) - Wheel Encoder Development Boards: - ADAS-ECU (Odroid-XU4 Board) - Development environment for advanced driver-assistance systems and autonomous driving algorithms. - Vehicle-ECU (STM32F4DISCOVERY Board): Manages all motor control (both longitude and lateral) and contains vehicle model for odometry calculation. Additional Circuit Boards: - STM-breakout board. - Power-circuit-board.

  • SOFTWARE COMPONENTS: ADAS Board: - Preinstalled and Configured Linux - ROS development environment - Custom ROS Packages for basic functionality STM Board: - Control Functionality: lateral control, speed control, trajectory control, Control State Machine, Wheel encoder driver, odometry model AVES Software Diagnose and Configuration Tool. Vehicle-ECU Software Backups and ADAS-ECU Software Backups.


Services provided

Support platform for R + D + i projects

This platform will be used to develop R+D+i projects with a cooperative approach. Participants may use their own nodes, both individually or with third parties, in order to carry out other R+D+I projects of a different nature in relevant conditions. These projects should be mainly conducted by researchers and in a one-off case private projects may be developed. In the latter case, pay-per-use models may be contemplated for using the testbed for the aim of financing the projects amortization or maintenance.

Benchmarking, evaluation and / or certification of products and / or services

The testbed may be used to support benchmarking, evaluation or certification of goods and services. For instance, provided that Basque authorities issued a certificate, the evaluation of the products or services could be conducted on the testbed.

Training

The asset may be used as a platform for offering and developing a wide-range of training activities, as for instance, cyber-ranges. In other words, enabling access to the testbed to end users, companies offering cybersecurity training or researchers, so they can prepare and provide training or sophisticated simulation environments.

Support for awareness actions or generation of cybersecurity culture in the Automotive sector

In the event that public-private partnerships are encouraged, the testbed will enable conducting activities in order to support international events, to create scenarios for attracting talent or to promote the local companies as leaders in industrial cybersecurity.
