Highly Flexible and Scalable Development and Test Solutions

Innovations in highly automated and autonomous systems and current CO2 regulations are the key drivers for the technological development of tomorrow's commercial and off-highway vehicles. The first driverless and electrified shuttle buses have already been introduced, and highly automated, self-driving trucks are becoming a reality. Specialized vehicles and machines in construction and agriculture are already automated and connected; fully automated agricultural machinery, for example, increases efficiency in sowing. In addition, efficient new drive technologies such as electric drives as well as hybrid drives and highly efficient combustion engines are on the rise in both, commercial and off-highway vehicles.

Data Logging
Make ADAS/AD data available faster and at lower cost

Make ADAS/AD data available faster and at lower cost

Data from real traffic situations is the key resource  in making autonomous mobility a safe reality. Our mission is to enable your data logging systems to quickly respond to new iterations of training and validation, which in turn will allow for the shortest data cycles. To do this, we provide you with a comprehensive solution for flexible in-vehicle data recording, advanced data insight, and integrated data ingestion.

Data Annotation
Annotation and anonymization with best-in-class quality and automation

Annotation and anonymization with best-in-class quality and automation

The development of ADAS and autonomous vehicle systems requires a huge number of objects and attributes from data recordings to be labeled for subsequent use in the development process. Only a very high level of automation makes these annotation projects feasible within an affordable budget and timeframe. Moreover, the anonymization of faces and license plates within recorded data has become a global requirement. dSPACE, with its group company understand.ai, offers the right solutions to let you meet these tough requirements.

Optimized Production Software Development

The central challenges in production software development include the optimization of RAM resources, run time, and integration into the overall system. Furthermore, it must be possible to split the software in such a way that regular software updates are possible. And before the final software release, special validation and often a release process are required.
