Facing an increasingly competitive, threat-filled environment, aerospace and defense companies must digitally transform to deliver radical innovation. Complex software requirements (including safety and security), and emerging initiatives associated with model-based engineering and open system architectures can make it difficult to manage cost and schedule constraints. Traditional approaches are becoming less effective and may raise knowledge transfer obstacles, resulting in difficult or impossible-to-maintain designs. In this webinar, we will focus on a key enabler for developing your companies’ model-based systems engineering (MBSE) framework in compliance with standards promoting open avionics environments and interoperability: model-based software development tools.
As part of a global MBSE workflow, the system and software architecture, components, and design requirements must be properly defined and efficiently tested. In order to operate at the highest level of safety and meet DO-178C requirements for avionics software certification, software designers and developers will need to leverage model-based development tools for high-reliability embedded control, display and human-machine interface applications. This webinar will demonstrate how Ansys SCADE supports efficient embedded software development in accordance with DO-178C (up to DAL-A) along with FACE™ and ARINC 661, in order to efficiently develop portable and reusable avionics applications. Model-based techniques, qualified code generation and test automation features also enable streamlined design, verification and validation, decreasing the total avionics software development effort by as much as 50%.
Simulation is used extensively in civil engineering to analyze the behavior of structures and assess their resistance to various scenarios. This is both a safety and an economic challenge: The structure must be able to withstand all loadings to which it might be subjected during its entire operating life and, at the same time, construction cost must be minimized. Civil engineers typically perform a structural analysis of a concrete structure modeled in shell or plate elements before designing the reinforcement necessary to equilibrate all internal forces.
View this on-demand webinar to learn how a new Ansys civil engineering extension greatly facilitates this crucial task by determining the minimum reinforcement quantities necessary to support all expected (combinations of) loads.
In this webinar, learn how Ansys medini analyze supports the new SOTIF standard for road vehicles (ISO/CD 21448), and aids in the systematic identification, evaluation and subsequent risk mitigation of hazards caused by functional insufficiencies.
While functional safety standards (e.g., ISO 262626) address hazards caused by malfunctioning electrical/electronic (E/E) systems, they do not cover hazards that can occur even in the absence of system failure. One reason could be the performance limitations of the system or its components (e.g., sensors, perception algorithms). The ISO PAS 21448 standard on safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF) deals with the systematic identification, evaluation and subsequent risk mitigation of these hazards. SOTIF issues are especially important for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle (AV) systems.
In this on-demand webinar, we will introduce the concepts of SOTIF and illustrate how our safety analysis tool — medini analyze — can perform SOTIF-related analysis of E/E systems. We will introduce a practical workflow incorporating SOTIF and hazard and risk assessment (HARA), which leads to triggering conditions for potentially hazardous behavior. We will also demonstrate how the SOTIF analysis can be combined with the ANSYS autonomous (AV) simulation environment in different use cases, e.g., to check effects of triggering conditions by simulation or verify that measures to mitigate SOTIF risks are effective.
The next generation of autonomous vehicles (AV) will be designed faster, safer and more affordably thanks to a strategic partnership between AVSimulation and Ansys.
The collaboration integrates revolutionary simulation technology from AVSimulation (SCANeRTM) with Ansys VRXPERIENCE immersive autonomous driving simulation solutions.
Ansys VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR is an open and scalable modular simulation solution. It enables testing and validation of AV and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) under simulated everyday driving conditions, over millions of virtual miles per day.
In this webinar, Ansys and AVSimulation will demonstrate how VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator powered by SCANeR can speed the development of safe, autonomous vehicles.
This webinar demonstrates the features of Ansys VRXPERIENCE HMI in Ansys 2019 R3. We’ll introduce the added application programming interface (API) for establishing a lease line connection to the human–machine interface (HMI). The API facilitates running and interacting with your embedded software in virtual reality (VR) or software-in-the-loop (SIL) systems. It offers out-of-the-box compatibility with Ansys SCADE and Ansys SCADE Display. At the same time, the API enables cosimulation with different flight simulators. You can assess the usability and workflows of your HMI under specific flight conditions — to safely test emergency situations with full-cockpit interactivity and validate the HMI from the pilot’s perspective.
VRXPERIENCE HMI also offers new capabilities to prepare a virtual mock-up of the user experience. You can now extract and merge surfaces for selecting geometry sub-elements at lower levels, split surface elements into smaller elements, remove surface elements from a geometry and apply different materials or light on sub-elements. It facilitates the data preparation of material, lighting and HMI actuators, and accelerates the CAD preparation workflow.
