The development of new autonomous systems requires an iterative process that flows from design to virtual testing, then back to design for refinement.

ANSYS VRXPERIENCE simulation platform has been designed and developed to support this type of iterative process for cutting-edge, driverless systems. The complete solution extends from component-level model-in-the-loop (MIL) testing through system-level verification and validation using software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation. VRXPERIENCE also accounts for human factors by simulating human-machine interaction (HMI) behaviors in a 3D virtual environment.

The powerful simulation capabilities greatly reduce the time and cost of physical testing.

Virtually experience a test drive

Test and optimize the performance of your intelligent headlamp units, sensors and HMIs with the ANSYS VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR™.

With this real-time, interactive driving simulator, virtually experience real-world driving conditions. Test your vehicle under variable terrain, weather and lighting conditions, to assess sensor perception, sensor fusion and systems operations.

In a fraction of the time required to physically drive the billions of miles required for safety certification, virtually test your vehicle in a closed-loop simulation environment.

VRXPERIENCE greatly reduces the time and cost of development by enabling a repeatable process for modified sensor inputs.

  • ANSYS VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR™ ensures vehicle, passenger, pedestrian and property safety.

Dynamically validate lighting systems

Evaluate your headlight within a complete physics-based simulation in a dynamic virtual driving environment, both for automatic driving and basic manual driving capabilities. It has never been so easy to evaluate systems and to perform regulation checks in driving conditions.

  • ANSYS VRXPERIENCE Headlamp virtually simulates all night conditions for testing intelligent headlights and autonomous driving (AD) systems.

Safely test sensors

Based on realistic driving conditions, VRXPERIENCE makes the same reliable decisions as the future real-world connected vehicle will. By providing a realistic physics-based sensor response in real time for camera systems, lidars, radars and ultrasonic sensors, VRXPERIENCE gives the digital car all required information about its environment, enabling you to create the safest autopilot systems.

  • ANSYS VRXPERIENCE Sensors simulates all automotive sensors (camera, radar, lidar, ultrasonic).

Significantly elevate perceived quality

Predict and validate the impact of product variations on appearance and perceived quality by delivering the ultimate virtual customer experience. Optimize your product to create a robust design that eliminates the need for multiple, expensive physical prototypes. Ensure that manufacturing and assembly processes are reliable and achievable, and that they deliver the highest possible perceived quality without increasing cost. By optimizing perceived quality, you deliver:

Interactively assess HMIs

Place drivers at the wheel of the vehicle design process. Within an immersive driving environment, efficiently evaluate the driver’s responses to new intelligent driving systems or advanced proactive safety systems and ensure that he will instantaneously understand important information. For the first time, discover a steadfast and accurate method of testing driver interactions with your future product and HMI, without endangering lives or damaging expensive equipment.

Expertly engineer a new sound dimension

With ANSYS VRXPERIENCE Sound, create the perfect sound signature for your products. This comprehensive solution for sound analysis facilitates measurement of the perceived sound quality and 3D playback. Listen to ANSYS Mechanical simulations (e.g., vibration), modify sounds to evaluate the effects of level changes on components, embed the modified sound into a simulation and run a study on sound quality. Set up psychoacoustic tests based on a listener panel and obtain statistics about the true perception of your sounds. Take advantage of the intuitive user interface, with a graphic display of sounds, to easily create the perfect sound signature for your product.

  • ANSYS VRXPERIENCE Sound performs sound rendering and analysis.
