Siemens Digital Industries Software has released its Simcenter SCAPTOR software for ADAS data collection.
The company says that SCAPTOR combines hardware and software to record, visualize and replay high-fidelity raw data, and help accelerate development processes. By linking ADAS development to noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and vehicle dynamics performance, the company claims its Simcenter portfolio now offers a 360° view of performance attributes of autonomous vehicles. This enables a closed-loop development process for autonomous vehicles with a solution that spans the physical and virtual aspects of development, including real-world data collection, 1D and 3D modeling for system development and virtual testing.
As autonomous vehicles generate even more data, Siemens notes that it is important to bridge the gap between vehicle development and data center technology. The development of safe and reliable autonomous vehicles requires authentic, high-speed, high-fidelity, raw data from multiple sensors.
High-quality data is essential to train reliable and robust vision and detection algorithms, and to validate and verify the autonomous and advanced driver assistance systems. Siemens says that SCAPTOR has been developed using technology from ADAS developer b-plus, which helps companies merge test and simulation through the phases of data capture, analysis, exploration, verification and validation and back to data collection. These new capabilities can be used to create a toolchain to record, visualize and replay high-fidelity raw data.
