What will the vehicle of the future look like? It will be electrified in some form, sure. But most importantly, it will be equipped with a variety of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and the driver will be able to fully rely on the vehicle through autonomous driving (AD).
The biggest challenge is to gain drivers' trust in the technology by demonstrating safety in all situations.
For ADAS/AD systems to be considered safe, an immense amount of testing is required. This extensive testing increases the pressure on development. Especially since prototypes are hardly feasible in early phases and besides, their creation is costly and time-consuming.
Therefore, the paradigm shifts towards virtual testing and validation using simulation techniques is the logical consequence. The Virtual Twin is the key. The twin includes all aspects of the virtual environment including roads, weather, and traffic, as well as the vehicle under test.
ADAS/AD systems must master their tasks perfectly. In order to guarantee that the ADAS/AD systems make decisions reliably, the individual functions must be tested down to the smallest detail. After all, the safety of passengers and all other road users depends on it.
The number of traffic events that can occur are endless. It is therefore only logical to challenge the ADAS/AD software
with a variety of critical situations to ensure its smooth and reliable operation. But the effort to test real-world scenarios requires prototypes, time, and capacity, which always comes at an immense cost.
By using dedicated simulation tools, the testing of the systems can be massively scaled. In addition, virtual tests have the advantage that each test scenario can be repeated in exactly the same way.
- Increase your efficiency by virtualizing tests and run different tests simultaneously.
- Quickly design complex ADAS/AD test scenarios with AVL Scenario Designer™.
- Benefit from our high-quality scenario packages. The Level1-to-Level3 Starter Pack or the Euro NCAP Regulatory Pack are perfect starting points for the verification and validation of driver assistance systems.
- Use the created scenarios in many different tools and test environments as they are fully compliant with the ASAM OpenSCENARIO standard.
The mobility revolution is in full swing. This is not just about developing new, more sustainable propulsion systems. Rather, the entire development process is in upheaval - with simulation taking the lead.
Right now, it's important to understand the challenge that each of us - OEMs and suppliers alike - face when it comes to pushing the boundaries of both our design process and our engineers. As the number of different systems grows, departments and team structures are changing. We understand that. At AVL, we go through these processes as well, because we are not just software developers. We are also engineers and therefore users. We implement our knowledge in intuitive workflows, generators, wizards, and evaluations in our software and projects.
We are your global partner in realizing the mobility of the future. A mobility characterized by its minimal impact on the environment. We offer you simulation solutions ranging from component to system analysis. As we are deeply integrated in the development process, our software solutions - tools and projects - enable you to master the challenges of virtualization.
