Please join us on March 7, 2019, for an all-day technical symposium showcasing new developments and solutions for embedded software development and testing. Attendees will learn how to jump start the development and testing of new control software for highly automated vehicles. Technical experts will share tips on how you can build a simulated vehicle, sensors, traffic and the surrounding environment to carry out virtual test drives in real time. New and improved processes for SIL and HIL testing will be presented, and much more.

This event is free of charge, courtesy of dSPACE. We hope to see you there!


Technical presentations and a Q&A will be held on the following topics:

  • Autonomous Driving Systems - Challenges Continue to Emerge, So Do Solutions - Overview of New Solutions from dSPACE
  • Cross-Platform Development - Designing, Executing and Testing Algorithms
  • Keeping It Real - Simulating the Real World for Autonomous Driving System Validation
  • Sensor Realistic Simulation - Bringing the Environment for Testing
  • Infusing Reality in ECU Validation - Environment Sensor Interface for HIL Validation
  • DARTS - dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems
  • Scenario–Based Testing (SCbT) - Real Benefits of Scalability, Flexibility and Efficiency in an End-to-End Toolchain

dSPACE SCALEXIO with Environment Sensor Interface (ESI)

Stop by the dSPACE exhibit area to see a live demo of the dSPACE SCALEXIO hardware-in-the-loop simulation system and the dSPACE Environment Sensor Interface (ESI) Unit. 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.

MicroAutoBox II

FPGA I/O extension modules are easy to integrate into the MicroAutoBox II

The dSPACE MicroAutoBox II will be on display. This is a compact, real-time prototyping system for performing in-vehicle, fast function prototyping. This unit offers comprehensive automotive I/O and is designed to handle extreme shock and vibration. With autonomous driving in mind, the unit features several monitoring functions to constantly monitor the real-time processor and the correct execution of real-time applications. Additionally, FPGA functionality is available for applications requiring extremely fast control loops.  

MicroAutoBox Embedded PC

This compact, shock- and vibration-proof PC system designed for in-vehicle use will be on display. The MicroAutoBox Embedded PC provides processing power for Windows- or Linux-based applications, such as digital road maps and computation-intensive functions for automated driving. The processing power behind this unit adds more computing capability, and can interface to cloud-based resources and to data storage units. It is ideal for developing autonomous driving, infotainment, telematics and image processing applications. (This unit can be used as a stand-alone system or as an extension to the dSPACE MicroAutoBox II prototyping unit.)

MicroAutoBox Embedded Sensor Processing Unit (SPU)

Used in combination with RTMaps software, the SPU is designed to process and merge data from the vehicle network and various sensors, such as cameras, lidars, radars and GNSS receivers. It primarily calculates perception and sensor fusion algorithms and connects, for example, to HMIs. (This unit can also be used as a stand-alone system or as an extension to the dSPACE MicroAutoBox II prototyping unit.)

MicroAutoBox Data Storage Unit (DSU)

MicroAutoBox DSU for high-performance data logging / recording

Check out the MicroAutoBox DSU. This mass data storage capacity unit is perfect for high-performance data logging/recording. (This unit is an extension to the MicroAutoBox Embedded PC or Embedded SPU.)   


A demo of the RTMaps software solution for synchronizing and processing real-time data streams from multisensory applications will be on display. RTMaps provides unique features that allow faster development of functions for automated driving on embedded platforms. This demo will also show the R-Tag (real-time tagging) feature. Images and data captured by sensors are immediately tagged and processed for precise, real-time navigation.


The dSPACE VEOS PC-based simulation platform will be on display. With VEOS, it is possible to validate the software of electronic control units in the early development stage. With the thousands of test drives that are required to validate highly automated driving functions, VEOS offers an easy way to accomplish these tests in an automated virtual setting.
