Autonomous vehicles are poised to redefine the global automotive and aerospace industries. But designing these complex products to meet safety and reliability requirements represents an engineering challenge without precedence. Because these machines must make highly sophisticated decisions in extremely complex environments, manufacturers must test a prohibitively enormous number of use cases and scenarios.
The latest issue of ANSYS Advantage reveals how engineering simulation is the only way to deliver the speed and cost-efficiency that organizations require to develop autonomous systems. Electronics reliability (including semiconductors and hardware), software and algorithm development, functional safety analysis, accurate sensors and more are all needed to ensure road, track and air safety. In this issue, experts explain the broad range of simulation technology needed to ensure safe and reliable autonomous systems. And, industry leaders reveal how engineering simulation is a critical capability in the drive toward fully autonomous vehicles.
With the race on to achieve full autonomy within the next few years, companies must overcome a host of advanced engineering challenges. Scott Stanton from ANSYS explores why engineering simulation is now an imperative for companies who want to win the race.
Edge Case Research employs a simulation platform that bombards autonomous driving software with billions and billions of difficult driving cases for quick identification of weaknesses.
Autoliv evaluates radar integration scenarios to pioneer reliable systems and avoid costly design revisions.
Autodrive explains how simulation and model-based development are critical in creating the certified embedded software that controls the hardware for plastic code markers on roads and rail tracks, which help identify the precise location of a vehicle.
In addition, Mark Hindsbo, ANSYS vice president, describes how traditional ways of applying engineering simulation are no longer adequate. Simulation must be used every day, on every product, across the entire product lifecycle, to study and improve every aspect of performance. Other articles share how Corning is developing automotive glass to reduce interior noise, why Senior Flexonics depends on simulation to develop tooling created with additive manufacturing, how a Chinese organization reduced design time by 90 percent to create boxes that raise oil and gas equipment above muddy sites and much, much more.
