This webinar demonstrates the features of ANSYS VRXPERIENCE HMI in ANSYS 2019 R3. We’ll introduce the added application programming interface (API) for establishing a lease line connection to the human–machine interface (HMI). The API facilitates running and interacting with your embedded software in virtual reality (VR) or software-in-the-loop (SIL) systems. It offers out-of-the-box compatibility with ANSYS SCADE and ANSYS SCADE Display. At the same time, the API enables cosimulation with different flight simulators. You can assess the usability and workflows of your HMI under specific flight conditions — to safely test emergency situations with full-cockpit interactivity and validate the HMI from the pilot’s perspective.
VRXPERIENCE HMI also offers new capabilities to prepare a virtual mock-up of the user experience. You can now extract and merge surfaces for selecting geometry sub-elements at lower levels, split surface elements into smaller elements, remove surface elements from a geometry and apply different materials or light on sub-elements. It facilitates the data preparation of material, lighting and HMI actuators, and accelerates the CAD preparation workflow.
