What makes a good DiL simulator

What makes a good DiL simulator

Driver in the Loop   The concept of driving simulators emerged in the 1930’s for research on traffic safety. The concept shown here by DeSilva in 1936 is already close to some simulators used these days. At the time, the idea was already to bring the driver into...

Why simulation and physical tests are complementary?

Why simulation and physical tests are complementary?

Before simulation, validation of new systems under test (complete vehicles, ADAS command law, headlights, etc.)  were only physical tests, which means that we deployed several versions of prototypes on a track in order to make sure that the behavior is what was...
Lighting simulation, a major challenge in the automotive domain

Lighting simulation, a major challenge in the automotive domain

Autonomous vehicles are real. Combination of different sensors (cameras, radars or LiDAR) allow vehicles to take its environment (weather, other vehicles, pedestrian, etc.) into account and therefore accelerate, turn, break autonomously. Automotive simulation has...
