We have new tools for researchers and industry partners using our test facility. Mcity’s new software interface, OCTANE, allows users to control many aspects of the Mcity Test Facility’s infrastructure from a phone, laptop or vehicle computing platform. The application programmable interface (API) is a common language other applications and users can access to interact with the facility.
Mcity has also built a web application, called Skyline, using the OCTANE API to enable point-and-click control for test facility features, including roadway intersections, rail crossings, crosswalks, and facility gates. These new scriptable controls can be used together as building blocks to orchestrate large, complex, and highly repeatable testing scenarios.
