With the onset of exciting new technologies such as electrification, autonomous driving, deep learning and artificial intelligence, we are excited to show you several new products that will improve your development and testing processes at our dSPACE Tech Day. This event is taking place on March 4, 2020, at the Santa Clara Hilton in Santa Clara, CA.

Come out and see, first hand, our latest solutions that can help you secure a safe and well-tested outcome for your autonomous or electrically-powered vehicle development project. This event is free-of-charge, but registration is required.


Key development considerations and challenges will be addressed for autonomous and electro-mobility applications, including answers to the following questions:

Autonomous Driving

  • What system capability is required to record the extreme amounts of raw data that are generated by sensors and vehicle buses?
  • How can you gather “the right data” to train your AI neural network algorithms?
  • What’s the best approach for automatically extracting and generating simulated scenarios?
  • How can you perform large-scale, high-fidelity simulations?
  • How can you test your perception sensors (camera, lidar, radar, USS sensors, etc.) to ensure that they will function properly in varying conditions (rain, snow, heat, fog, etc.)?
  • How can you perform time-synchronous data replay?
  • How do you tackle the “unknown risks” associated with safety-critical systems?
  • How can you use the cloud to significantly speed up your testing process?


  • How can you achieve fast computation for your electro-mobility projects in the range of nanoseconds?
  • How can you use production code to accelerate the development of modern electric drive applications?
  • How can the latest FPGA technology support testing with the highest dynamics and precision?
  • How can you perform HIL simulation and tests for circuit topologies such as chargers, grid feed-in, and smart grids?
  • How is the future of testing battery management system changing?
  • How can you test and validate high voltage traction inverters, DC/DC converters, and onboard chargers with maximum efficiency?
  • How can you use real components in a HIL test bench when the ECU electrical interfaces can’t be accessed?

Tool Demonstrations

In addition to technical presentations and a Q&A, we will have live tool demonstrations showcasing our next generation of powerful products built to help you manage your development and testing needs for complex applications. These demos will include:

Simulating Perception Sensors with Highly-Realistic Visualization (Featuring: SCALEXIO, Environment Sensor Interface Unit, Sensor-Realistic Simulation)

Learn how you can simulate perception sensors with highly-realistic visualization utilizing a dSPACE SCALEXIO hardware-in-the-loop simulation system, along with the dSPACE Environment Sensor Interface (ESI) Unit and Sensor-Realistic Simulation (SRS) capability. The ESI Unit is used to simulate sensors in a HIL setup for sensor fusion and function testing. This unit synchronizes the simulation of individual sensors and supports time-correlated feeding of raw sensor data to one or more camera ECUs. SRS uses the most powerful rendering engine to simulate all sensor technologies, allowing you to achieve photo-realistic, real-time visualization with the utmost detail, including environmental terrain, lighting, haze, flare and glare effects.

Data Logging and Rapid Prototyping for L3, L4 and L5 Autonomy Development (Featuring: AUTERA AutoBox and SCALEXIO LabBox)

With dSPACE’s brand new in-vehicle data-logging and rapid prototyping system – the AUTERA AutoBox – the power of a server is brought into the vehicle to handle level 3, 4 and 5 autonomous development needs. AUTERA features a logging bandwidth of up to 50 gigabytes and a storage capacity of up to 32 terabytes. The unit is also scalable, so you can increase your bandwidth and storage space by adding or linking several systems together. When paired with the high-performance real-time processors of the SCALEXIO LabBox, you can perform function development and testing for demanding applications. This FPGA-capable unit also allows you to inject real phase currents into power electronics test devices.

Cloud Simulation Utilizing Real World Data (Featuring VEOS)

Scenario-based testing is the only practical way to validate perception sensors and functions for autonomous driving. Using the VEOS platform for PC-based simulation, you can automatically perform and evaluate millions of tests in a cloud system. Simulation scenarios are generated from sensor raw data or object lists and played out in a realistic 3-D virtual environment.

Automated Simulation Testing of Electric Drives (Featuring: AutomationDesk and SYNECT)

For the real-time simulation of electric drive projects, dSPACE offers a simulation solution with the highest switching frequency up to 400 kHz and the latest FPGA technology, along with ready-to-use models. Seamless testing can be carried out at all development stages. With dSPACE’s powerful test authoring and automation tool, AutomationDesk, tests can be executed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And with the addition of dSPACE SYNECT, it’s easy to manage automated testing with full traceability, from requirements to test results.
