Ansys say the new version of their 2020 R2 engineering software delivers enhanced simulation and collaboration capabilities to help engineers generate larger and more complex designs quickly.
2020 R2 incorporates new technologies for the development and validation of autonomous vehicles, such as advanced lidar models and new sky models. These allow for enhanced daylight simulation to extend the hardware-in-the-loop simulation of the camera.
Optical headlight simulation results from Ansys SPEOS can be imported into Ansys VRXPERIENCE. The headlight and use scenarios created in the Ansys VRXPERIENCE powered by SCANeR driving simulator make it possible to create driving films with vehicles equipped with virtual prototype lighting and safety equipment. The results can facilitate post-processing and data visualisation for lamp certification, replacing expensive and complex nighttime testing. These tools also give an advantage in demonstrating high quality, sustainable automotive lighting solutions through realistic and reliable photos and videos.
