They are providing insights into our software and hardware solutions as well as into our test systems, and they offer support to master the challenges that you are currently facing.


How can you optimize your simulation workflow with vertical integration?

Expert talk with Carl Squire

Even though the use of simulation is already common in the automotive industry, it is rarely applied in the seamlessly throughout the entire vehicle development process. Vertical integration is an approach that makes use of simulation across the borders of software development and that enables its application from function planning to validation in the vehicle.

In the video, our expert uses the example of AEB function development to demonstrate how simulation, from model-in-the-loop (MIL), to software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) to vehicle-in-the-loop (VIL), is used to save time and costs during the development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

How could your future integration testbed look?

Expert talk with Dr. Pascal Piecha

The increasing connectedness of powertrains with the full vehicle and their environment makes reliable testing of vehicle prototypes an even greater challenge. Due to the fact that ambient conditions are not controllable, performing tests based on real-world driving gets more and more difficult and time-consuming.

Integrated full vehicle testbeds present an efficient alternative to real-world road tests because they consider extended testing options to test compete systems in a virtual, controllable and adaptable test environment. In this video, our expert uses the example of GNSS signal simulation to show how IPG Automotive enables future integration testbeds jointly with solutions from our partners.


How to scale up your simulation

Expert talk with Jannik Müller

In the past years, the topic of simulation scalability has gained momentum. Millions of test kilometers are required to validate systems. This means that virtual test scenarios have to be generated and simulated in a shorter time. Highly automated processes, High Performance Computing and parallelization have therefore become indispensable in vehicle development. In this video, our expert presents three different user groups, and demonstrates how they can solve the challenges they are currently facing in their areas of application. 

How to generate scenarios with automated processes

Expert talk with Alexander Frings

When developing autonomous driving functions, numerous scenarios have to be generated because it is the only way to increase the safety of the system. Manual approaches, such as the use of an editor, are time-consuming and do not fulfill the requirements of current vehicle development. Automated processes, however, offer the possibility to use the data on which the virtual test run is based much more efficiently. One option is “ScenarioRRR”.

Our expert for scenario generation will show you how to use this toolbox to efficiently generate and adapt scenarios in order to create variations.
