Experiment and Visualization Software MotionDesk

3-D Online Animation of Simulated Mechanical Systems in Real Time

dSPACE MotionDesk is a 3-D online animation software application that visualizes the results of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations for ECU tests. MotionDesk supports hardware simulation platforms from dSPACE, such as SCALEXIO and DS1006. The tool also supports offline simulation based on dSPACE VEOS and Simulink® and comes with valuable features for developing and testing ADAS scenarios. These include camera sensor simulation during which MotionDesk video data is fed directly to the camera ECU and ideal point-cloud sensor models for the development of radar and lidar sensors.

  • Supports testing of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)
  • Tight integration to ModelDesk and ASM
  • Intuitive graphical scene design

Automotive Simulation Models Sensor Simulation

Highly accurate environmental sensor simulation

Autonomous vehicles accurately find their way with the aid of sensors. To ensure this in every possible situation, vehicles, controllers, and sensors are efficiently validated at early development stages: they are tested in virtual test drives with an immense variety of test cases. dSPACE precisely addresses this requirement by offering “Sensor Simulation” a unique and complete solution based on simulating a sensor’s physical phenomena and properties.

SCALEXIO Hardware Environment Sensor Interface Unit

Feeding digital data into camera, radar and lidar ECUs

Systems for autonomous driving use multiple environment sensors. To simulate the sensors in a HIL setup for sensor fusion and function testing, it is essential to accurately synchronize the stimulation of the individual sensors. The dSPACE Environment Sensor Interface Unit supports the time-correlated feeding of raw sensor data to one or more sensor ECUs.  

  • High-performance FPGA for feeding raw sensor data to sensor ECUs in a synchronized manner
  • Flexible adaption of long- and short-range raw data interfaces
  • Support for lidar, radar, and camera sensors
  • Simulation of up to 12 sensors with 50 Gbit/s of aggregated bandwidth
