Title: APPARATUS AND SYSTEM FOR ASSESSING OR MEASURING THE CAPABILITY OF SITUATIONAL AWARENESS SENSORS
Abstract:
An apparatus (100) for assessing and/or measuring the capability of at least two different situational awareness sensors (111, 112, 113, 114) is disclosed. The at least two sensors may comprise at least two of a lidar sensor (111), a camera (112), a thermographic camera (113) or a night vision camera (114). The apparatus may have a face having at least two areas (103, 104, 105) formed of at least two different materials, wherein the at least two materials have reflectivity spectra that differ from each other with respect to at least one wavelength or at least one wavelength range within the infrared, visible and/or ultraviolet electromagnetic radiation range, the at least two areas thereby being configured to reflect incident electromagnetic radiation within the infrared, visible and/or ultraviolet range to the sensors, at least a part of the reflected electromagnetic radiation being detectable by the at least two sensors. The at least two different materials may have thicknesses of at least 0.5 mm.
