Ansys AVxcelerate realistic sensor testing and validation enables you to test your autonomous vehicles, ADAS and sensors faster than with physical prototypes.
Realistic Driving Scenarios using the Driving Simulator of Your Choice
To reduce the need for costly physical prototypes while speeding the design process, the Ansys AVxcelerate Sensors solution offers the opportunity to virtually experience sensors to test and analyze their performance. In the virtual world, use realistic driving scenarios to investigate radar, lidar and camera sensors perception in a Mil Sil or Hil context.
Discover high-fidelity physics-based sensor simulation with ground truth information for autonomous vehicles. Enable the use of multiple sensor simulations amidst realistic driving scenarios to ensure the physical prototype meets expectations.
Integrated simulation scenarios speed and improve the ability to confirm safety features across vehicle creation, including autonomous vehicles.
Autonomous driving systems rely upon sensors and embedded software for localization, perception, motion planning and execution. They can only be released to the public after developers have demonstrated their ability to achieve high levels of safety.
Today’s hands-off autonomous driving systems are largely built with deep learning algorithms that can be trained to make the right decision for nearly every driving situation. These systems, however, lack the detailed requirements and architecture that have been used up until now to validate safety-critical software, such as the kind that control commercial airliners. Road testing is clearly an essential part of the development process, but billions of miles of road testing would be required to validate the safety of autonomous driving systems and software. Simulation serves the need to make verification and validation of the operation of autonomous vehicles a practical effort.
