AURELION: Sensor-Realistic Simulation

Visualization and outstanding sensor realism for virtual test drives

AURELION, the new dSPACE solution for sensor-realistic simulation, lets you integrate top-grade visualization and cutting-edge, realistic sensors into your processes for developing and validating driving functions.

Application Areas

AURELION allows for precise sensor environment simulation, offers models for different sensor types, and is suitable for a wide range of use cases and configurations. It can be used throughout various phases of development, for example, in hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests, software-in-the-loop (SIL) tests, and even parallel validation in the cloud.

Key Benefits

The 3-D rendering engine, the high-precision dSPACE simulation models, realistic 3-D assets, and high-resolution material information allow for the accurate simulation of automotive sensors and environments under different weather and lighting conditions. AURELION marks a significant advancement and will more than replace the previous MotionDesk and Sensor Simulation software. It combines numerous features in a single product. The new solution lets you integrate third-party sensor models and will soon offer Linux and Docker support. It can be integrated with many other dSPACE tools, such as ASM, VEOS, RTMaps, the Environment Sensor Interface (ESI) Unit, and soon also with the upcoming SIMPHERA software.

Feature Description Benefit
Sensor simulation Easy parameterization and positioning of camera, radar, and lidar sensors and their simulation in real time. Cost-effective generation of realistic sensor data.
Consistency One tool for HIL, SIL, and cloud use cases. Save time and money by working with the same tools and project data across development steps.
Scalability Extensive scaling capabilities across multiple compute instances on a synchronized simulation basis. Simulation of the full sensor stack in an autonomous vehicle according to SAE Level 5.
Custom sensor model Several performant interfaces for IP-protected integration of third-party sensor models High realism by modeling the processing of the real sensor.
Dynamic generation of roads and terrain The Road and Scenery Generator can generate 3-D representations of roads, based on ModelDesk roads and the OpenDrive standard. Any road can be represented with any maneuver.
