Autonomous System Validation

Physically accurate simulation is the only way to validate autonomous vehicle systems in a realistic timeframe. 

Rapid Autonomous System Validation

Ansys simulation solutions and safety analysis enable a testing strategy to be defined that includes detailed and realistic world modeling and scenario generation that incorporates high-fidelity sensor simulations. From this, software-in-loop (SiL), hardware-in-loop (HiL) and driver-in-loop (DiL) analyses can be performed.

Software-in-Loop

Incorporating high-fidelity physics-based sensor models enables open loop software testing, model coverage and verification of the software implementation against key performance indicators and test plans.

Driver-in-Loop

With VR, Ansys provides live interaction between the user, virtual actuators and vehicle embedded software. This captures finger motions and heatmaps, a full cockpit user experience, reflection studies and HUD performance very early in the design process. 

Hardware-in-Loop

Ansys provides RTOS independent vehicle and sensor models on real time targets that provide continuity from design to verification, delivering test reproducibility and analysis of edge and worst-case scenarios.

Growing Vehicle Intelligence Requires Collaborative Simulation

As engineers improve every area of a vehicle — whether a software-controlled headlamp experience or technology ensuring sensors can better avoid collisions — simulation proves a crucial step. Only through simulation can engineers discover the success, or possible missteps, of a new technology, both vetting and improving the system in the same step.

Bringing Intelligent Headlamps to Light via Simulation

Once seen as a basic, utilitarian product feature, today automotive headlamps are becoming much more innovative — and a critical source of competitive differentiation. Intelligent headlamps, which autonomously produce adaptive light beams, are capturing the imagination of the world’s automakers and consumers alike. But how can automotive engineering teams verify the performance of their complex headlamp designs, which incorporate optics, sensors and embedded software controls, under every possible driving condition? The answer lies in engineering simulation. Ansys offers a complete modeling and simulation package for intelligent headlamps, including Ansys SPEOS for optics development, Ansys SCADE for software design and Ansys VRXPERIENCE for virtual nighttime road testing.

Engineer Perception, Prediction and Planning into Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) — such as forward collision warning (FCW), automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane departure warning (LDW), lane keeping assistance (LKA) and blind spot monitoring (BSM) systems — are estimated to have the potential to prevent more than a third of all passenger-vehicle crashes. The Ansys VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR provides a workflow that encourages the collaboration necessary to vet new technology and how drivers and passengers will react to that technology.
