Optics and VR

The 2022 R1 release delivers powerful capabilities that speed time to result, improve simulation accuracy and expand interoperability with other Ansys products.

  • LightField, a new Ansys file format to facilitate the storage and sharing of pre-computed intermediate simulation results for sub-structures within an optical system to improve simulation time and allow for block-box sharing between suppliers and their customers for improved performance and IP protection.
  • Surface property plug-in capabilities to allow for custom optical surface models written in C++ or Python (including third-party material descriptions such as from Ansys Lumerical FDTD).
  • Several productivity enhancements including parameter manager, preset manager, UX enhancements, and the accelerated import of CATIA projects.
  • Speos now offers GPU Compute delivering dramatic improvements to simulation performance (benchmarks indicate a 140x to 260x speedup on average) with no loss in accuracy and with an unprecedented performance to cost ratio.
  • New post-processing to better model dynamic scene effects such as roller shutter and motion blur.

Capabilities

Ansys Optics & VR predicts the illumination and optical performance of systems while allowing you to visualize future products in virtual reality. Experience physics-based light simulation to understand how your products look under real-world lighting and usage conditions. A mix of virtual prototyping and interactivity allows for the safe optimization of optical sensor layouts for autonomous vehicles

Ansys physics-based imaging, illumination and optical design simulation software streamlines the design process to better understand how your product will perform under real-world lighting and usage conditions.

When customers evaluate your products, the overall look and details can make the difference. Simulate light interactions with materials so you can see how your product will appear in real-world conditions, letting you see eye to eye with your customers and making decisions. 

Optical sensors are the eyes of any intelligent system. Assess raw signals from camera and lidar systems in their operating environments. Post-process simulated data to optimize sensor layouts on vehicles in dynamic driving conditions. 

Use real-time, interactive and immersive environments to experience your prototype in virtual reality on a 1:1 scale. Ansys VRXPERIENCE offers customized driving scenarios for testing on virtual HMIs, considering human factors analyses and cognitive workloads.
