Please find information about the latest changes since the previous release of EMM-Check.

  • New catalog providing extensive VR-Scenarios and Objects
    The first VR scenarios and individual models are now available as a new AddOn with a separate download.

    Download the scenarios as a zip archive from our website, extract the content into a directory and enter this directory in the user settings of EMM-Check on the tab 'Catalogs'.
    Then open the function 'Scenarios' in the top menu bar and select one of the predefined scenarios or insert individual models such as people or various objects.


    VR-Scenario in EMM-Check

    For a better illumination of the VR scenes in EMM-Check the option 'VR-Lighting' on the '3D-Viewer' tab in the user settings can be activated.
New functions
  • New function: Split model
    After importing a stl-file the geometry is available in EMM-Check as a solid geometry for the analysis. Each stl-file is one geometric object.
    The function 'Split model' has been implemented to split imported stl-files back into individual parts. After clicking on a model, the function can be called in the contextual menu in the section 'Edit'. The model is then replaced by a component and the individual parts are available as individual models.
    Depending on the size of the model, this function takes some time to recognize all the original parts.

  • New function: Saved Views
    With the new function 'Saved Views' the current view can be saved in the viewer and restored later.
    The views are saved in the respective EMM-Check Project (ecp) and are available again after loading a project.

  • New file format: Support of .obj-files
    EMM-Check can import stl-files and jt-files and from version also obj-files. obj-files support texturemapping and material properties.They are mainly used in the field of photorealisic rendering or the computer game industry. In EMM-Check the obj-format can be used to read objects for virtual reality environments, for example.

  • New structure of mirrors, cameras and working lights
    The structure of mirrors, cameras and working lights has been modified in such a way that all components can now be moved like the 'originals'. For example, a working light including the bracket can be rotated, but also only the headlight can be rotated in its bracket. To do this, the function 'Move and rotate' must be called on the relevant components.

  • New splashscreen and new icon
    Due to changes of the graphical design of the EMM-check logos and the revision of our website the splashscreen, which is displayed at the start of EMM-Check, and the EMM-Check icon were updated.

  • Improvements in various standards
    • The standards ISO 5006:2017 and DIN EN 15830 labels for rectangular boundaries (RBs) are now displayed.
    • A function for filtering the visualization of results has been implemented in the result dialogs of the following standards:
      ISO 5006:2006, ISO 5006:2017, StVZO ยง35b Section 2 Directive 11, ISO 5721-1, ISO 5721-2, DIN EN 15830, ECE R46, ISO 14401:2004 1/2, ISO 14401:2009 1/2, HSE-Document

    • The update processes after closing dialogs have been optimized, thus improving performance. This applies to the following standards:
      ISO 13564, DIN EN 16307, DIN EN 16842 and ANSI ITSDF
    • An additional tab for setting the heights of the test areas has been added to the profile settings in ANSI ITSDF.

  • EMM-Check Save project after analysis
    A new option has been implemented in the user settings with which an EMM-Check project can be saved automatically after the analysis.

  • Ok + Fit In in positioning dialog
    An additional button 'Ok + Fit In' has been added to the positioning dialog. Click on the button to center the moved model and close the dialog.

  • Two additional options for the dead range of joysticks
    Two additional thresholds have been added to the user settings for input devices to clearly distinguish the movement of the x and y axes of a joystick. (Settings, tab 'Input Devices')

ISO 5721-2
  • EEC 2015/208
    As an optional addition, the indirect view test according to EEC 2015/208 has been implemented. Two options for checking the visibility of the areas to the left and right of the vehicle center 30m behind the vehicle are available on the tab 'Areas'. The system checks whether these areas are visible in the mirrors.

    Test options for the EEC

    Test areas of EEC (B1 and B2)

    The evaluation of the view according to EEC 2015/208 is independent of ISO 5721-2 and is handled as a separate result in the results dialog and in the report.

  • Adjustment of the light source positions
    After intensive discussion with our customers, the translation of the light sources and the orientation of the filament were adjusted. Unfortunately, ISO 5721-2 does not provide any clear guidelines in this respect.
    The alignment of the filament is now always perpendicular to the geometry (as in part 1 of ISO 5721). The translation is now performed as a pair of eyes (65mm distance) in a range of +/-170mm (as in part 1 of ISO 5721 for vehicles with a permissible maximum speed of <=25km/h).
    For the calculation of the mirror visibility fields, the filament is now always aligned perpendicular to the corresponding mirror. The displacement of the light sources is as a pair of eyes (65mm distance) moved within a range of +/-170mm is taken into account.
DIN EN 15830
  • Evaluation of footnote 1 in sector A for all test profiles with suspended load
    If the test of a vehicle with a suspended load results in a masking in sector A of more than 4300mm or 2900mm (depending on the selected test profile), footnote 1 is now taken into account. EMM-Check calculates the masking in sector A without the test load. If the resulting masking is smaller than or equal to 1800mm, the test in sector A is considered passed.

ISO 5006:2017
  • Consideration of cameras during the movement of an excavator boom
    When analyzing the visibility of RB 3 while an excavator boom is moving, no camera visibility fields have been considered so far. This has now been added.
