Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo 2018

October 23-25, 2018, The Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, MI, USA

Visit dSPACE at Booth #304

Head lights, street lamps and other light sources impact how the sensors of an autonomous vehicle view the environment, and the impact of lighting conditions needs to be factored into development and testing process. With dSPACE MotionDesk 3-D animation software, you can create realistic visualizations of test scenario environments, including different light sources.

MotionDesk visualizes the results of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations for ECU tests. New features provide advanced lighting support so you can add light sources and driving conditions (i.e. night driving, rain, snow, etc.) to your virtual simulation tests. ​And with the MotionDesk State Objects feature, you can trigger certain visual effects stimulated from the simulation model (i.e. brake lights and turn signals). With this feature, more realistic visualizations are possible, enhancing test scenarios and improving overall visual quality.

MotionDesk, includes camera sensor simulation, where video data is fed directly to the camera ECU and ideal point-cloud sensor models for the development of radar and Lidar sensors. And MotionDesk’s deviation recognition helps to identify if performance degradation by scene complexity may lead to false test results.

Visit the dSPACE booth 304 to learn more about the company’s end-to-end tool chain for autonomous driving development and testing.

About the Event

With exclusive exhibitors showing nothing but Level 2 and 3 ADAS technologies, plus companies showcasing and discussing future Level 4 and 5 autonomous know-how, Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo, Novi, Michigan is a must-attend event for anyone working on the path toward driverless vehicles.

The Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo, Novi, Michigan is utterly unique in that it is dedicated to nothing but ADAS technologies and services, showcasing, discussing and debating everything you need to develop your Level 2 and 3 capabilities. Expect to see software, sensors and communication systems, and even complete ADAS systems! The event also includes three dedicated conferences that look beyond Level 2 and 3 autonomy: the Autonomous Vehicle Interior Design & Technology Symposium, the Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium, and the Autonomous Vehicle Safety Regulation World Congress (a fee applies to attend the conferences, but entry to the exhibition is free of charge).
