dSPACE Technical Presentation

Jace Allen
Business Development Manager – Simulation and Test Systems

Simulation and Closed-Loop Testing of Camera, Radar, and Lidar Sensors for Highly Automated Verification and Validation of Data Fusion Systems

Date: Tuesday, Jan. 7

Time: 2:30 p.m.

Location: Coral Spring II


Aerospace environments consist of both static and dynamic objects, both in the air and on the ground. Dynamic objects include aircraft, UAVs, ground vehicles, birds and people. Static objects involve runways, runway markers, buildings, and any other scenery / objects.

Detecting, classifying, identifying and tracking these objects is needed for collision avoidance algorithms deployed in current aircraft systems. Multiple sensors, such as cameras, radar, LiDAR, etc., need to be used for capturing the object’s characteristics and location. Data fusion is used to combine data from these sensors. Advanced algorithm techniques are then employed for object identification.

This presentation will explore how to enhance autonomous sensor testing capabilities and system quality assurance using completely automated hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and/or software-in-the-loop (SIL) simulation environments that integrate autonomous sensor technology, such as cameras, radar and LiDAR, or other key technologies, such as GNSS/maps and bus communications such as ARINC or Ethernet.

5 Reasons to Attend the Forum

The 2020 AIAA SciTech Forum is headed to sunny Orlando, Florida, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando! There are many reasons why you should attend the forum, but we’ve narrowed it down to the top five.

  1. Innovation Starts Here

    AIAA SciTech Forum and its predecessors have been delivering aerospace research and technology findings that have driven innovative developments for more than 50 years. The 2020 forum will explore the aerospace industry’s contributions to a sustainable future. Whether it’s combating climate change via Earth-observation satellites for weather and polar ice-cap mapping or delivering lifesaving supplies via UAVs, aerospace technology inspires and supports the betterment and prosperity of people and our planet. Learn about the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.

  2. Papers, Papers, Papers

    Your peers will present over 2,500 technical presentations on the latest innovations spanning 50 aerospace research topics that will drive advancements in the industry.

  3. Make Connections

    The forum will bring together over 5,000 participants from across the globe representing hundreds of government, academic, and private institutions. You’ll have daily networking opportunities to meet prospective employers, engage with industry leadership, and connect with your peers.

  4. Learn Skills

    Stay at the top of your game by registering for a pre-forum course or workshop. Thirteen courses and workshops including seven new ones have been added to the forum schedule.

  5. Hear from Experts

    The high-profile speakers and panelists participating in the plenary sessions and Forum 360s are proven business leaders and innovators. They are thought leaders with their fingers on the pulse of the aerospace industry.
