- Webinar - Traffic Scenario Simulation to Test Functions of Driver Assistance Systems
This free-of-charge dSPACE webinar demonstrates how to create traffic scenario simulations with the dSPACE Automotive Simulation Models (ASMs). The simulation environment can be used in the MIL and the HIL development and test phases.
In the years to come, steadily increasing traffic density, higher safety requirements, stricter environmental regulations, and demographic changes will pose greater challenges on the automobile industry. Today's driver assistance systems are making a considerable contribution towards meeting these challenges. As a result, complex traffic situations are becoming easier to control, which in turn increases safety on the road.
Driver assistance systems interact with the vehicle either passively by alerting the driver, or actively by performing an emergency brake or intervening in the steering, for example. When performing active assistance, they intercede in systems such as engine management, electronic steering, and brakes, to name just a few. They are an integral part of safety-relevant vehicle functions, and must operate without error in any conceivable traffic situation.
Even in the simulation's initial design and test phases, model-based development is there, enabling engineers to draw sound conclusions on the performance of the functions involved in the driver assistance systems. The goal is to shift a sizable portion of the function development and verification from the road into the laboratory. In the lab, the driver assistance systems are developed and their interaction with other ECUs is tested by running through the traffic scenarios with reproducible traffic environments and with different traffic participants.
In this webinar, presentations and tool demonstrations will show you how to use the ASM traffic simulation model (ASM Traffic) in control development and also later during the test phase on a hardware-in-the-loop test bench. Special attention is given to creating traffic scenarios and to connecting the models to real ECUs.
