Keysight Technologies, IPG Automotive (which develops virtual test driving technology) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication specialist Nordsys are collaborating to design and develop a modular test platform that the companies say will accelerate the validation of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and functions for autonomous driving.
The three companies have established a multi-year collaboration to create a solution – the Autonomous Drive Emulation (ADE) platform – which will emulate synchronized connections to all relevant sensors in a car such as the global navigation satellite system (GNSS), vehicle to everything (V2X) camera and radar, in a single system.
ADE is an open platform that simplifies integration with commercial 3D modeling, HIL systems and existing test and simulation environments.
“Combining the experience and expertise of Keysight, IPG and Nordsys will deliver a solution that enables customers to simulate and emulate their components, software and systems including sensor fusion and decision-making algorithms,” said vice president and general manager of Keysight's automotive industry segment, Tom Goetzl.
“Our innovative software solutions allow for transfer of real test scenarios including the entire environment into the virtual world with a high level of detail. We are delighted to bring this powerful and real-time capable software modeling technology to ADE and participate with Keysight in this partnership,” said Steffen Schmidt, managing director of IPG Automotive.
“Nordsys creates software-controlled applications focused on the automotive industry, as well as hardware and software solutions for V2X communications. We look forward to bringing this expertise to ADE and the collaboration with Keysight,” said Manfred Miller, CEO of Nordsys.
