- Strategic partnership combines Ansys’ high-fidelity physics simulation with best-in-class driving simulation from IPG Automotive
- Ansys VRXPERIENCE and IPG Automotive’s CarMaker will speed the verification and validation of autonomous vehicles
Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) and IPG Automotive are collaborating to fast-track the creation, integration and validation of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) features and autonomous vehicles (AVs). Combining Ansys® VRXPERIENCE® with IPG Automotive’s CarMaker will empower joint customers to virtually verify and validate sensor design and performance, which will accelerate development and time-to-market.
To meet rigorous safety standards, automotive OEMs and suppliers must test complex interactions between ADAS features, like automatic emergency braking or an autonomous vehicle and its surrounding environment, traffic and weather across millions of scenarios. Physical road testing would require billions of miles of safety testing – which is extremely expensive and time-consuming. Only simulation can bring AVs to market in our lifetime, which is why OEMs depend on Ansys VRXPERIENCE to test, validate and virtually experience AV performance.
Integrated within VRXPERIENCE, CarMaker is an open test platform that can be applied throughout the…
