A partnership between Foretellix and aiMotive aims to speed up the safe deployment of ADAS and AVs. Collaboratively, the pair have come up with a solution that uses Foretellix’s Foretify and aiMotive’s aiSim platforms to deliver an end-to-end virtual solution for engineers.
The new solution enables the verification and validation of ADAS and AV perception and planning functions for a wide range of vehicles including passenger cars and commercial trucks. Native support is provided by the recently approved ASAM OpenSCENARIO 2.0.0 standard (OSC2). OSC2 utilizes a language and domain model for scenario-based testing, enabling the large-scale generation and testing necessary for the deployment of safe ADAS and AVs.
By using the solution, product development teams can define abstract scenarios using OSC2 and use Foretify to automatically generate millions of concrete scenarios that can be executed by aiSim in its purpose-built, GPU-based simulation engine. Data from the simulation set is then gathered, analyzed and displayed on an advanced dashboard. This enables teams to fix bugs, edge cases and other unknowns. The pair’s scalable validation solution seeks to reduce development timelines by exposing software bugs much sooner than in real-world testing.
“Foretellix is excited to partner with aiMotive, one of the leading simulation providers for the automotive industry,” said Udi Jacobi, VP of global sales and business development at Foretellix. “We share a common understanding that our customers expect to base their toolchains on open architectures and standards supporting the best-in-class tools. Our partnership will bring our joint customers a measurable and scalable simulation approach to validate ADAS and AV to ensure safety. Benefits will include substantial reductions in cost and accelerated time-to-market.”
“End-to-end simulation is the only way to replace real-world testing with relevant virtual miles,” commented Szabolcs Jánky, product director for aiSim. “That is a challenge no company would be able to solve alone – that’s why we strive to work with the best in the field and create a complete and easy-to-integrate ecosystem. As a result of our partnership with Foretellix, we can deliver the most comprehensive validation and verification solution that takes care of everything from large-scale, intelligent scenario variation to the very details of the real-time environment and sensor simulation, giving our customers a significant advantage over their competitors at every point of development.”
