Through its platform dedicated to the simulation of multi-frequency environment and multi-technology sensors, ESI Pro-SiVIC™ brings the driving world to life. This advanced software’s wide range of models – for vehicles, pedestrians and mobile object animation – can accurately reproduce complex environments to allow for scalability of your simulation’s performance.
Pro-SiVIC™ provides full virtual prototyping capabilities, delivering cost and time savings during the design, testing, integration and validation phases in the development of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
ADAS improves vehicle performance and reliability and will soon be the cornerstone of the autonomous car. Since a vehicle’s environment affects its complex embedded and communicating systems, such as ADAS, virtual prototyping is mandatory to cover the level of functional testing required.
ESI Pro-SiVIC™ is the only tool on the market integrating a high level of physics into its sensor models and, at the same time, it is able to simulate the application (ADAS) in real-time from Model in the Loop (MIL) and Software in the Loop (SIL).
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Typical ACC scenarios involving different vehicle speeds and lane changes can test and improve the robustness of an ACC algorithm. Through closed loop simulation, the ADAS, running in its own environment, sends acceleration/deceleration orders back to the simulator.
Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)
Create custom scenarios involving multiple vehicles and different obstacles. Perform closed-loop simulation within Pro-SiVIC™ to evaluate the effects of ADAS defined braking orders to the vehicle model. This dynamic model reproduces the change of pitch and roll variations, realistically reproducing the perception of the different sensors.
Lane Departure Warning
By using environments featuring a wide range of road curvatures with interchangeable markings, users can study the impact of marking quality on these scenarios.
Blind Spot Detection
Define scenarios involving vehicle overtaking manoeuvers or parking manoeuvers or study the impact of initial positions and speeds of mobile objects involved.
Traffic Sign Recognition
Pro-SiVIC™ features a catalog of over 200 different road signs. Each sign’s dimensions and position is fully adjustable, relative to other objects, in order to evaluate extreme situations of road sign detection and recognition.
The lighting engine of Pro-SiVIC™ is also suitable for night use cases and the study of automatic beam commutation systems. A vehicle’s headlights can be reproduced very accurately.
Virtual Testing of Lighting Systems
Pro-SiVIC™ offers a powerful direct lighting model. Simulate multiple independent light sources, along with their shadows. This lighting model allows dynamic test scenarios with complex lighting situations in order to obtain quantitative metrics on lighting performance or a visual feedback on lighting systems.
