Paderborn, 23.02.2023. The need for testing and the effort required for the validation of self-driving cars is continuously increasing and placing ever higher demands on the performance of simulation solutions. Accompanying development, realistic simulation of the vehicle environment and the physical sensor characteristics is an important component of the validation of ADAS/AD driving functions. dSPACE has therefore supplemented its simulation platform for realistic sensor simulation with the particularly performant Sensor Simulation (SensorSim) PC HPP.
With the latest Intel® XEON® Gold processors and the possibility to equip the systems with up to two NVIDIA graphics cards, the SensorSim PC HPP offers significantly more power, better scalability, and efficiency for the fast and precise calculation of physics-based models of radar, lidar, and camera sensors. In addition, the dual-GPU operation and high computational performance of the SensorSim PC HPP allow significantly more compact multisensor test setups to be implemented than with the previously available systems.
The SensorSim PC HPP enables deterministic real-time sensor simulation with realistic mapping accuracy and high resolution and was developed for professional high-load testing (24/7) according to automotive reliability standards. The output of the simulation (3-D point cloud, target lists, or RAW data format) can be used for data feed into both hardware-in-the-loop and software-in-the-loop test applications.
The SensorSim PC HPP is fully compatible with other components of the dSPACE ADAS/AD tool chain and can be combined with dSPACE hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) or software-in-the-loop (SIL) simulation platforms such as SCALEXIO or VEOS.
