ADAS and AV verification and validation platform provider Foretellix, and IPG Automotive, a virtual vehicle simulation provider for ADAS and automated driving systems, say they are working on a simulation solution that will reduce development costs and time-to-market and increase the safety of automated driving systems.
The companies state that by combining Foretellix’s Foretify verification and validation platform with IPG Automotive’s virtual vehicle simulation environment CarMaker, they have created a solution that can be rapidly deployed by ADAS/AD development teams. The combined toolchain apparently enables large-scale virtual testing to accelerate the development and deployment of ADAS/AD systems.
“Foretellix is excited to partner with IPG Automotive, a leader in virtual simulation, to bring our mutual customers a comprehensive validation solution for ADAS and autonomous vehicles. Our joint solution supports the large-scale testing and validation required to ensure the safety and efficient operation of these advanced systems while providing our customers with a substantial reduction in cost and time-to-market,” said Udi Jacobi, VP global sales and business development, Foretellix.
Foretify determines, generates and optimizes the set of test scenarios needed to ensure test coverage for the user’s ADAS/AD stack. It orchestrates the execution of the scenarios and interfaces with CarMaker, which runs each of the tests in a highly realistic simulation environment. CarMaker provides the high-fidelity virtual vehicle, sensors, traffic objects and 3D environment. IPG notes that CarMaker can run significantly faster than real time with minimal resources in HPC environments, while deployment of the combined solution in the cloud provides flexible simulation options, enables agile software development methods and is readily integrated into CI/CT processes.
”Foretify is an industry-leading platform for ADAS and autonomous systems validation and verification. CarMaker is a scalable simulation environment for ADAS/AD development. This is a proven combination that enables developers with one of the most advanced toolchains available to accelerate the development and deployment of ADAS and automated driving systems, delivering results today,” concluded Martin Elbs, senior vice president and CCO at IPG Automotive.
