Partners Perpetrate Virtual Driving Experiences

OPTIS, a virtual prototyping company, and Elektrobit (EB), supplier of embedded and connected software products for the automotive industry, are partnering for the virtual testing of augmented reality head-up display (AR HUD) systems in a dynamic driving experience. Together, the two will enable carmakers to streamline the development process, ultimately shortening the time to market.

 

OPTIS and EB will combine their expertise in automotive solutions to provide a unique, commercial off-the-shelf solution that carmakers can use to develop and assess sensor fusion and augmented reality content. OPTIS’ driving simulator, VRX, facilitates the assessment of intelligent lighting strategy and simulates sensor acquisition virtually. In parallel, EB’s new augmented reality solution, EB arware, collects and fuses sensor data that is then visualized on the car’s windshield in augmented reality. The combined solution will enable carmakers to experience light simulation, optics and augmented reality content in their virtual vehicle prototype.

Analog Devices ADIS16500/05/07 Precision Miniature MEMS IMU Available Now from Digi-Key

The Analog Devices’ ADI ADIS16500/05/07 precision miniature MEMS IMU includes a triaxial gyroscope and a triaxial accelerometer. Each inertial sensor in the MEMS IMU combines with signal conditioning that optimizes dynamic performance.

 

With an AR HUD, pedestrians, road signs and other vehicles detected by the car’s sensors are highlighted and superimposed on the road via the windshield display. This information can be used to warn drivers of a potential hazard or simply provide insight on their surroundings by drawing their attention to the car’s environment. OPTIS’ VRX makes it possible to virtually test several driving scenarios in real-life driving conditions to anticipate the detection of these dangers, all from the safety of a virtual environment.
