Autonomous technology mustn’t be deployed on land, at sea or in air without having proven safe, which could require massive, costly testing if ADAS, AD systems, or urban air mobility vehicle were to be tested under millions of possible operating scenarios. A prototype autonomous vehicle would have to be driven billions of kilometres while keeping ahead of the competition. That’s just not practicable; simulation is the only realistic answer and Ansys Autonomy is the industry’s most comprehensive simulation solution for ensuring the safety of autonomous technology.
Ansys Autonomy can simulate all sensor types—lidars, cameras, and radars—to accurately predict installed-on-vehicle performance. It can perform hazard and operability analysis; fault tree analysis; failure modes and effects analysis; failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis for functional safety assessment and target of evaluation modeling; threat assessment and remediation analysis, and attack tree analysis for cybersecurity evaluation. Thus, it is a powerful tool to slash time-to-certification and halve embedded software development costs, with simulation and automatic generation of ISO 26262-qualified code.
Rapidly test vehicles under millions of driving scenarios, spanning complex real-world traffic, pedestrian, weather, and lighting conditions.
Simulate control algorithms, human-machine interfaces, vehicle dynamics, etc, from chip to system level to ensure the reliability and safety of the vehicle.
