Collaborators Promote Cloud-Based Autonomous Vehicle Simulation

ON Semiconductor is leveraging its image sensor modeling technology to provide real-time data to the NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation simulation platform. The open, cloud-based platform performs bit-accurate simulation for large-scale, hardware-in-the-loop testing and validation of autonomous vehicles.

 

The image-sensor model receives both scene information and control signals from DRIVE Constellation to calculate and output a real-time image based on the inputs. It then transmits the simulated image back to DRIVE Constellation for processing. The complex sensor model will utilize all critical parameters in the path from converting photons to digital output (e.g. Quantum Efficiency, Noise, Gain, Analog-to-Digital Conversion, Black Level Correction and more) to provide an accurate output of a real-world image sensor.
