A partnership has been formed between Valeo, a global leader in automotive technology, and Applied Intuition, a vehicle software supplier, in order to provide a digital twin platform for ADAS sensor simulation. The joint solution should allow OEMs to bring safe and reliable ADAS features to market more quickly.
Using the digital twin database, OEMs can gain access to locations all around the world, offering an extensive and diverse set of scenarios and environments for ADAS perception testing and validation. The digital twins can be integrated with Applied Intuition’s sensor simulation product, Spectral, for OEMs to create more accurate simulations rather than using traditional methods. According to the companies, this allows manufacturers to ensure the safety, performance and reliability of critical algorithms and to develop production-ready ADAS perception systems more rapidly.
“Digital twins create huge advantages for ADAS simulation,” said Peter Ludwig, CTO and co-founder of Applied Intuition. “Digital-twin-based simulations achieve more breadth and accuracy than any other simulation technology.”
The digital twin platform focuses on simulating Valeo’s Scala 3 lidar and expands to other Valeo sensors for SIL and HIL testing.
Clement Nouvel, CTO lidar at Valeo, added, “Our partnership with Applied Intuition exemplifies our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible and how fast autonomous driving features can be brought to end customers while improving safety. Together, we aim to redefine the future of lidar perception through digital twin technology.”
