The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) has awarded a £2m (US$2.5m) grant to the Sim4CAMSens project – which will be led by ADAS & Autonomous Vehicle Technology California exhibitor Claytex and a group of industry-leading partners – as part of the Commercialising Connected and Automated Mobility: Supply Chain competition.
The consortium, consisting of Claytex, rFpro, Syselek, Oxford RF, WMG, National Physical Laboratory, Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult and AESIN, aims to enable accurate representation of ADS sensors in simulation. It will develop a sensor evaluation framework that spans modeling, simulation and physical testing. This project will involve the creation of new sensor models, improved noise models, new material models and new test methods to allow ADS and sensor developers to accelerate their development.
“The Sim4CAMSens project addresses a pivotal gap in the journey toward autonomous vehicles,” said Mike Dempsey, managing director of Claytex, a Technia Company. “The perception sensors are the eyes of these vehicles, and ensuring their accurate representation in simulations is critical. This collaboration of industry leaders will contribute to safer and more reliable autonomous mobility.”
Claytex is exhibiting at Booth 416 and rFpro is at Booth 500. Catch them before the show finishes today at 3pm.
