Claytex exhibit and present at the Low Carbon Vehicle 2018 (LCV2018) again this September, taking place at the Millbrook Proving Ground.
LCV is the UK’s premier low carbon vehicle event incorporating four key features:
- Technology Exhibition split over three halls
- Extensive Seminar Programme
- Facilitated networking with the low carbon community
- Ride & Drive of the latest research & development and commercially available vehicles
Meet with Claytex – Exhibition stand C4-404
At our stand, we will be showcasing our VeSyMA suite of solutions that provides a platform for vehicle modelling enabling the physical behaviour and interactions of all the vehicle systems to be modelled including the engine, electric motors, battery, cooling systems, vehicle dynamics, air-conditioning systems, etc.
We will also demonstrate how rFpro and Dymola can be used to support the development of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and autonomous cars. Using rFpro to provide the virtual test environment we can support driver-in-the-loop and provide data feeds to the array of sensors (cameras, LiDAR, radar and ultrasound) all based off the same high-fidelity track model.
Presentation: Wednesday 12th September – Seminar Dome @ 11:10
Virtual Development and Testing of Autonomous Vehicles
Many OEMs and technology companies are promising the availability of autonomous vehicles on the roads in the next few years, including the UK government industrial strategy indicating they want them on the roads by 2021. These trends present significant challenges to the engineers tasked with designing, developing and testing of these vehicles to ensure they function safely.
With the complexity of the next generation vehicles it is hardly practical, within the time frames proposed, to carry out comprehensive physical testing of all the vehicle systems. A research conducted by Rand Corporation concluded the figure of 5 billion miles as the distance an autonomous car needs to drive before we have the statistical confidence that it is safe. It is not practical to drive that far, so simulation is going to be necessary to support the physical testing and validation of autonomous vehicles.
Using rFpro and Dymola, virtual test environments can be created with full control of weather, lighting, traffic scenarios and pedestrians. Simulation also allows us to quickly move from city test scenarios to motorways and to different locations around the world without having to drive between them. This will compress the number of virtual miles needed for testing.
