Zenzic, formerly known as Meridian, will be at Autonomous Vehicle to present its projects for boosting the testing, development and adoption of CAVs in the UK. The company was originally set up as a partnership between the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, the Automotive Council and the Advanced Propulsion Centre.
To make it easier for R&D and IT teams to collect, manage, and analyze massive amounts of global sensor data, DXC Technology has developed Robotic Drive, which encompasses a platform and toolkit, as well as expertise, to accelerate the engineering and testing of AV technology.
An ADAS HIL test system will be the highlight of SET’s booth. It allows for efficient assessment of devices under test (DUT), reducing test time and costs as well as increasing reliability by replacing complex real-world tests with a real-time virtual equivalent.
At its expo booth, Intempora will demonstrate real-world use cases of its Intempora Validation Suite (IVS), a set of new software tools for the benchmarking, testing and validation of ADAS and highly automated driving functions, including data fusion, deep learning, positioning, and computer vision algorithms.
At this year’s expo, Siemens Digital Industries will present the latest in its Simcenter portfolio, which is constantly being developed to be able to manage ever more complex scenarios for virtual testing.
To get around the problem of sourcing expensive road condition data for AVs, Nira Dynamics has developed its Road Surface Information platform, which uses only a software package and the sensors already in cars to gather vital road information such as friction, road roughness, potholes and road bumps.
Visitors to Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo looking for new ways to manage the huge volumes and variety of data that AV testing creates should check out the stand of CMore, where the company will be presenting a new product concept called C.DATA.
Lidar pioneer Velodyne LiDAR will show its range of lidar sensors, including the Vellaray which is due to go into mass production next year. The Velarray boasts robust object detection and excellent range, resolution and field of view, to allow for longer braking distances and improve safety.
Visitors looking for the latest advances in lidar technology should pay a visit to Luminar, whose sensor platform combines the performance and manufacturability needed to enable efficient and accurate AV perception systems.
To demonstrate how AV functions can be validated by means of sensor-realistic simulations, dSpace has developed the highly scalable Scalexio real-time system and the Environment Sensor Interface Unit, which enables the time-correlated feed-in of raw sensor data.
To address the challenges of self-driving and connected cars, Technica Engineering has prepared a new generation of devices capable of capturing the complex traffic of today’s heterogeneous electric and electronic architectures.
By hosting a significant part of the software of a real ECU in a simulated environment on a PC, virtual ECUs enable test drives to be performed virtually, but with realistic models of the control software running in the car.
AVs need rigorous testing and rigorous testing needs a solid framework. This is what Foretellix has been developing: a coverage-driven verification framework with intelligent automation, analytics and metrics to arrive at safe AVs – and be able to prove it.
Cognata’s full product lifecycle simulation solution, SimCloud, helps ADAS and AV developers expedite getting a product to market by combining artificial intelligence, deep learning and computer vision with an intuitive user interface to help simulation engineers to easily create scenarios with unparalleled realism and scale.
TestMaster is a modular configurable software package from S.E.A. that facilitates full automation of test systems to make testing operations safer, more cost-efficient, more flexible and easier to use.
Simulation is an incredibly powerful tool for AV and ADAS development, but physical testing still cannot be replaced fully, so for algorithm, sensor or data research you will probably still need a vehicle.
