Simulation specialist ANSYS has signed an OEM agreement to combine its AV simulation solution with Edge Case Research’s perception stress testing and risk analysis system, Hologram, to deliver a comprehensive virtual testing system for AV developers.
The AI-powered integrated solution will analyze AV algorithms to detect edge cases and help validate perception algorithms in AV setups.
“We’re excited to join the ANSYS AV ecosystem,” said Mike Wagner, CEO at Edge Case Research. “We chose to partner with ANSYS because of its deep expertise in safety, which is critical to understanding how products like Hologram, VRXPERIENCE and SCADE can be used together in support of safety cases for autonomous products. ANSYS and Edge Case Research will deliver an unprecedented comprehensive capability for safeguarding the next generation of autonomous driving systems.”
Eric Bantegnie, vice president and general manager at ANSYS, added, “Edge Case delivers a powerful data testing and analytics platform that unlocks the value of petabytes of AV’s recorded road data to find edge cases, significantly accelerating the development of safer, AI-driven perception software. Underlying capabilities have been incorporated into our recently announced collaboration with BMW. Together, we will usher in a new era of AI and shape the future of safe autonomous driving.”
