Revolutionizing Automotive Validation
In the ever-evolving world of automated driving technology, simulation plays a crucial role in testing and validating new innovations. Today, we are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking development: aiSim, our in-house built simulator, now features the largest test track in Hungary, AVL ZalaZONE. This expansion not only reinforces our commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive simulation but also opens up a new realm of possibilities for engineers and researchers. In this blog post, we will delve into the key aspects of our simulator's enhanced capabilities and highlight the remarkable advantages it brings to the automotive testing landscape.
Realism at its Finest: High Correlation in Simulation
One of the core strengths of aiSim lies in its ability to replicate real-world scenarios with exceptional accuracy. With the integration of the AVL ZalaZONE test track, we have further enhanced the capabilities to recreate the track experience. The term "high correlation" encapsulates this revolutionary feature, which allows users to relive their on-road experiences in a virtual setting. By replicating the test track in such a realistic way, we provide engineers and researchers with an invaluable tool for analyzing vehicle performance, handling, and safety under various conditions.
Unparalleled Fidelity and Close Track Validation
Fidelity and accuracy are critical when it comes to automotive testing. aiSim takes pride in its high-fidelity representation of real-world environments, ensuring that every minute detail is faithfully replicated. This level of precision extends to our newly integrated test track, enabling engineers to perform close-track validation without leaving the comfort of their offices or labs. Whether it's evaluating the latest automated driving software updates or just taking a look at the suspension systems, tire performance, or aerodynamics, our simulator provides an unparalleled platform for meticulous testing and validation.
Beyond NCAP: A Versatile Test Track for All Environments
While the safety ratings provided by the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) are important, our simulator goes beyond the confines of traditional testing. With AVL ZalaZONE, Hungary's latest and greatest test track, at your fingertips, you can now explore a wide range of environments and scenarios, including smart cities and challenging terrains. This expanded capability is particularly significant for the development and testing of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) technologies. Our simulator empowers engineers to assess the performance of these cutting-edge systems in diverse and complex settings, paving the way for safer and more efficient vehicles of the future.
Collaboration and Innovation in the Automotive Industry
The integration of the AVL ZalaZONE test track into aiSim not only provides engineers and researchers with an exceptional testing environment but also fosters collaboration and innovation within the automotive industry. By enabling virtual collaboration, our simulator transcends geographical boundaries, allowing experts from different locations to collaborate seamlessly. This enhanced connectivity fuels the exchange of ideas, knowledge sharing, and faster development cycles, ultimately accelerating the pace of innovation in the automotive domain.
With this new implementation, we have reached new heights in verification and validation. The high correlation, fidelity, and versatility of our simulator empowers engineers and researchers to push the boundaries of what is possible in vehicle development. Whether it's ensuring the highest levels of safety, optimizing performance, or exploring new frontiers in ADAS and AD technology, our simulator provides the ideal platform to revolutionize automotive testing. We are excited about the endless possibilities that lie ahead and look forward to collaborating with industry experts to shape the future of mobility.
