A Foundation for NCAP Leadership

Autonomous automobile digitization requires enhanced technology made possible by Ansys.

We use the results to facilitate post-processing and data visualization for lamp certification, replacing costly and difficult night tests.

—William Jung, CEO, Weldex Corporation

As passenger automobiles become more digitalized and more autonomous, they require a wide range of advanced technologies that include sensors, such as cameras, radar and lidars, as well as embedded software supporting automated control systems. As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) become ubiquitous — and mandatory across the automobile landscape — the need for advanced technology will only increase.

By mid-2022, many countries in Europe and Asia will require the addition of advanced emergency braking (AEB) systems, intelligent speed assistance (ISA) and other safety features. Ansys has provided a foundation for NCAP leadership in the ever-expanding world of automobiles.

Ansys VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR

The level of testing and analyzation available in Ansys VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR™ allows you to perform extensive scenario variations, opening up worlds of driving situations in one simulation. You can assess vehicle performance across a range of parameters, tweaking conditions to dial in your design. Through the process, simulate any driving environment and track performance for future analyzation.

Use the information gained to design your digital vehicle — from body type to engine — and to customize your testing situations and make changes along the way. Through it all, save time and money.


Key Features

Recreate all your needed tests, understand multiple scenarios and analyze simulations through Ansys VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator.

  • Create Your Driving Scenario
  • Design Your Digital Vehicle
  • Perform NCAP Tests
  • MiL/SiL Testing
  • HiL Testing
  • DiL Testing
  • Analyze Test Drive Simulations

Through it all you can benchmark your product’s real-world performance versus virtual test track performance.

You can also choose to connect your custom sub models. Configure any advanced driver assistance system features, including virtual camera, radar, lidar and ultrasonic sensors, while adding in autonomous capabilities. Define and test the robustness of the system.
