Introducing VIRES Virtual Test Drive for the Development of Automated Vehicles
Details –


Every global automotive manufacturer is striving for Level 5 Autonomy – commonly referred to as “self-driving cars”. Autonomous vehicles are expected to prevent 25,000 highway fatalities and countless injuries per year in the US alone. Developing the capabilities of autonomous vehicles so that they can achieve their promise requires several million miles of testing per day across the industry. This is only possible with virtual validation using simulation software. VIRES Virtual Test Drive (VTD) is a critical simulation technology for assessing the behavior of highly automated driving, as well as vehicles with advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and active safety systems.

About webinar –


In this webinar, we will demonstrate how VTD’s modular suite of tools provides a comprehensive solution offering for anyone involved in the development and validation of automated driving technology.

  • Basic principles of operation of the VTD suite of tools.
  • Connecting heterogeneous tools using the open standards OpenCRG, OpenDRIVE, and OpenSCENARIO.
  • Embedding an Adams real-time vehicle model in the VTD environment.
  • Managing the overwhelming data produced by automated driving simulation with MSC’s SimManager.
  • Application of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to extract engineering information from massive data sets.

Software- and Hardware-in-the-loop Engineers, Vehicle Dynamics Analysts, Sensor Developers, Project Managers, Engineering Managers.  Following the webinar, you will be able to join in a live Q&A to have your specific questions answered.
