Sensors, Trafc, Scenarios
Automotive manufacturers are rapidlyintegrating Advanced Driver AssistanceSystems (ADAS) that require vehicles tomonitor their environment and communicatewith other vehicles and road infrastructure.These systems include: active cruise control,crash avoidance, lane departure warning, andparking assistance.CarSim 8 provides a comprehensive set of tools for developing and testing ADAScontrols and methodologies. CarSim 8provides up to 20 vehicle-mounted sensorsthat can detect the range, velocity, orientation,and signal return strength of up to 99stationary or moving objects. Each object inthe three dimensional environment can beprogrammed to coordinate its motion withthe primary vehicle, or any other object inthe environment, allowing users to developcomplex test cases involving multiple vehiclesand other objects.All variables representing the objects in each
sensor’s ield of view can be exported to a
Simulink, LabView, or a custom C code modelthat monitors the vehicle’s environment andactivates an adaptive control or warningsystem. Objects that are no longer in the
current ield of view can be automatically
recycled; they are dynamically placed in the
emerging ield of view.
Sensors and moving objects add only a small
amount of extra computation, and work ine
in real-time HIL systems.
Productivity Tools—Ease of Use
Already renowned for our industry leadinggraphical user interface and vehicle dataorganization structure, Mechanical Simulationhas polled a diverse group of new andsophisticated CarSim users to determine howwe can make CarSim more productive.With this in mind, we have added features,redesigned input screens, and automatedprocedures that previously required VSCommands or several steps.
The world’s most widely used and validated vehicle simulation software adds features to improveproductivity, streamline product development, and extend support for designing, testing, andevaluating active safety technologies.
Introducing Car Sim8
Here are some of the new features:
Copy and Link
—automatically generates a duplicate data set and linksit to the existing run.
Automatic Plotting and Animation Aids
—CarSim automaticallygenerates output variables based on your selected plot and visualizer variables
Events and Procedures
— simplifed Home screen layout:
Import and Export
several database and consolidated pars fle
operationsmake it easier than ever to share data with co-workers and partners.
Automatic Vehicle Colors
—Change vehicle colors for animation overlays
with a single selection:
Automatic Force Arrows
—single screen interface to add force arrowsto your animations
