System Architecture

The development of embedded software for AD systems begins by creating an architecture model of the automated driving system in Ansys SCADE. This intuitive modeling tool generates a system-level architectural model that graphically shows the main function blocks for the AD system.

Software Integration

Ansys closed loop simulator solution, with APIs and middleware, enables auto-generation of safety-certified code that is target compatible for RTOS integration.

Model-based Software Development

SCADE model-based software solutions answer this pressing need for AD developers. From designing control systems to automatic code generation for industry standards such as ISO 26262 and DO-178C.

SiL, HiL and DiL Verification

SCADE and the Ansys VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR support all testing and verification activities for the AD embedded software model.

Autonomy on Roadways and Railways - Article - Ansys Advantage - V12 I1

The success of autonomous vehicles depends on both changes in the vehicles themselves and the transportation infrastructure. Autodrive is developing technology that uses plastic code markers on roads and rail tracks to precisely locate a vehicle. Such precision can increase the safety and the traffic capacity of infrastructures and reduce energy consumption on railways.

SkyAngels and Ansys

Ansys simulation assists SkyAngels in developing computational intelligence for autonomous aerial vehicles, aimed at navigating in non-segregated airspace in a predetermined certification path. This represents software engineering challenges related to adaptability and learning requirements specification and verification, algorithms convergence, deterministic behavior, absence of emergent comportments and resistance to cyberattacks.
