A point cloud is a set of data points in space where those points represent a 3D shape or object. Point clouds are used for multiple purposes including the creation and visualization of CAD models . Given our work on Carla-Autoware and rFpro, this blog will focus on the...

Scenario Editor is a tool for the creation, modification and storage of scenarios for use in rFpro and Dymola. Scenario Editor allows users to view an OpenDRIVE map (.xodr file) and then plot a route around the road network while adding events such as stops and lane changes. For...
What is a Map Sensor? For a vehicle driving along a road, it can be difficult to define it’s movement. A Map Sensor defines an objects position relative to the road
As progress is being made in the development of autonomous vehicles (AVs) and their functionalities, new problems constantly arise due to the uncertainty of the physical world with its varied unpredictability that can often cause an accident to occur. Due to this, an incredible amount of work is being...
The validation and verification of autonomous systems poses a range of complex challenges. Whilst physical testing continues to be useful, the proliferation of conditions and variables means that new virtual methods are needed. There is an urgent demand for a comprehensive understanding of ADAS, connected & autonomous vehicles behaviours...
Many companies are currently developing radar sensors for the autonomous driving application and each system made available will have unique specifications and thus capabilities. To gain a sufficient amount of radar measurements in the real-world, to confirm that a given sensor meets certain requirements, will be both time consuming...
This week we will show you how to insert a state-of-the-art Lidar device within the virtual environment of rFpro. This will allow a user to easily stream and visualize the sensor output on any PC or storage device. The Velodyne HDL-32E is the latest Lidar device to be added...
This blog post looks at exporting models as FMUs containing string parameters and modifying those string parameters in the FMU before simulating. Process for creating FMUs with string parameters and modifying these strings The basic instructions for creating an FMU containing modifiable string parameters are below: Make sure the...
Modern vehicles; modern challenges Vehicles are getting ever more complex, with subsystems becoming further interdependent with the wider system dynamics than ever before. Beyond this, modern vehicles now interact with their surroundings, reacting and responding to changes in the immediate environment. This is never truer than in autonomous vehicles....
