Simulation software company Ansys acquires Optis for optical simulation expertise

Ansys, which develops simulation software for a number of different industries, has acquired Optis, another simulation company that focuses on visualisations and light simulations. Optis’ additional know-how in the field of lidar, cameras and radar bolsters Ansys’ capabilities in the development of AVs.

In addition, the acquisition of Optis adds multi-physics simulation of physical and electronic components, the analysis of systems’ functional safety, as well as automated development of safety-certified embedded software. These functions can be integrated into a closed-loop simulation environment that interacts with weather and traffic simulators, enabling thousands of driving scenarios to be executed virtually.

Jacques Delacour, Optis president and CEO, said, “Joining Ansys enables us to provide the best radar, lidar and camera simulation in the market within one toolset. Together we will significantly speed the development of autonomous vehicles.”
