Opal-RT, a developer of real-time simulators, has announced it is opening a division dedicated to testing intelligent transportation systems.
A team of experts based in Lyon, France, from all fields of autonomous driving including communication (V2X), cybersecurity, data fusion, artificial intelligence, and developers and project leaders from the automotive industry, will use simulation on high performance computers equipped with hundreds of processors to reduce testing time and increase vehicle safety.
The new division will primarily develop turnkey solutions for the AD/ADAS commercial vehicle market, with plans to branch out into off-road vehicles, robotics and wherever there are autonomous systems that use artificial intelligence.
“By opening this new division, OPAL-RT is not only investing in tomorrow’s technology but partnering with customers to meet their evolving need for innovation,” said Jean Bélanger, CEO and CTO, Opal-RT Technologies.
“The use of artificial intelligence in embedded control systems is a significant challenge, both in terms of ensuring vehicle safety and performance and of reducing design and testing time for these extremely complex systems. We have the expertise and the solutions to help our customers accelerate product deployment and reduce costs,” said Herve Pollart, managing director, Opal-RT Intelligent Transportation Systems.
