CarMaker: Turnkey simulation environment for developing autonomous driving functions

Validation & testing

  • Safe operation of your systems in the entire ODD through scalable testing of the full AV software stack in the virtual vehicle prototype
  • Validation of algorithms for perception, sensor fusion, planning and motion control
  • AV hardware tests on HIL test benches and on proving grounds (VIL tests)

AD system layout

  • Concept studies on optimal sensor setups (type, number und position of sensors)
  • Sensitivity analysis on the influence and choice of relevant vehicle components (steering, brake, suspension)
  • System design and adjustment of actuators for specific vehicle platforms

AI training

  • Training of perception algorithms with synthetic and automatically labeled data (“ground truth”) by the means of semantic segmentation as well as distance information from depth maps
  • Fast, flexible and safe training of decision-making algorithms using multiple scenario variations 

Vehicle dynamics simulation

  • AD vehicle dynamics analysis with highly accurate vehicle models (virtual prototypes)
  • Targeted analysis and evaluation of critical driving scenarios
  • Motion prediction for decision-making algorithms in the vehicle and test preparation on proving grounds
