By leveraging simulation like Ansys SCADE and Ansys VRXPERIENCE to engineer new marvels like the cockpit of the future, aerospace engineering teams can enjoy the best of both worlds: extreme innovation, combined with extreme accuracy, speed and product confidence. VRXPERIENCE provides a comprehensive evaluation of all the human-machine interfaces in the next-generation cockpit while SCADE generates the software that makes it a reality.
Developing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles is a challenge without precedent. Estimates indicate that billions of miles of road testing will be necessary to ensure safety and reliability. This impossible task can only be accomplished with the help of engineering simulation. With simulation, thousands of driving scenarios and design parameters can be virtually tested with precision, speed, and cost economy. This 60-minute Webinar will describe six specific areas where simulation is essential in the development of autonomous vehicles and ADAS. It will also provide examples and substantiate the benefits of simulation while identifying the tools needed for ADAS and autonomous vehicle simulation.
Every airplane passenger who has ever sat next to the wing in rough air has surely noticed how much deflection it can undergo, and has likely hoped that the wing bending tests have been thoroughly performed! The truth is that these tests go far beyond what the passenger will ever see. Wing reliability under extreme loading conditions is tested with deflections of over 5 meters between the utmost downward and upward positions of the cycle. Similarly, the fuselage is pressurized during testing to levels that would never be encountered in normal operating conditions.
Simulation has long been used to improve the design of nearly every physical product or process by providing the opportunity to evaluate a wide range of alternative designs prior to building physical prototypes. Simulation has also long been used to model different operating scenarios to develop control strategies that are incorporated into control algorithms to improve operations.
