AirPro Diagnostics ‘Auggie’ Passes Safety Testing

AirPro Diagnostics’ mobile static recalibration device, Auggie, has been found to meet IIHS and NHTSA vehicle requirements following independent testing, according to a press release.

The tests were performed by FT Techno of America (FTTA) at the Fowlerville Proving Grounds, a 950-acre independent proving ground in southeast Michigan. The facility is equipped with professional engineering and operations staff and a 20-acre dynamic pad, 3-mile oval track, and ADAS test facility.

For IIHS testing, AEB and Pedestrian AEB both day and nighttime scenarios on a vehicle re-calibrated with Auggie were conducted. Following completion of all 16 IIHS tests, Auggie received the highest rating possible: Superior.

This segment of testing included AEB vehicle-to-vehicle testing as well as numerous AEB pedestrian scenarios during both day and night sessions. Only a small percent of vehicles have earned the Superior rating in these tests, which are considered some of the most difficult for a forward-facing camera.

NHTSA NCAP testing saw Crash Imminent Braking (CIB), or AEB, and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) test scenarios, which the Auggie-calibrated vehicle all passed. 

This segment included solid and dashed line scenarios for LDW and CIB/AEB testing on a moving vehicle and stationary vehicle. Additional tests on a stationary pedestrian to a hybrid of current ADAS standards was also successfully held.

“This independent testing to the IIHS and NHTSA standards now validates the claims we have made that the Auggie portable device is safe and OEM compatible,” said AirPro Diagnostics President and COO Josh McFarlin. “This further confirms the efforts of our engineers and testing personnel who over the last 5 years have worked diligently to validate our patented solution on thousands of vehicles to ensure the safety and accuracy of our tested and proven Auggie.”
