ANSYS acquires optical simulation provider OPTIS

May 07, 2018 // By Ally Winning
The acquisition allows ANSYS to deliver a comprehensive solution for simulating autonomous vehicles by adding OPTIS' optical sensor and closed-loop, real-time simulation to ANSYS's multiphysics portfolio.

With OPTIS’ capabilities, ANSYS software now spans the simulation of all sensors, including lidar, cameras and radar; the multiphysics simulation of physical and electronic components; the analysis of systems functional safety; as well as the automated development of safety-certified embedded software. That functionality can be integrated into a closed-loop simulation environment that interacts with weather and traffic simulators, enabling thousands of driving scenarios to be executed virtually, which is faster, safer and more economical than the physical testing of autonomous vehicles.

Using OPTIS’ photo-realistic virtual reality and closed-loop simulation platform and other ANSYS solutions, automotive manufacturers can simulate the environment driverless vehicles are navigating, including road conditions, weather and one-way streets. ANSYS' pervasive simulation solutions will be used to drive virtual autonomous vehicles in realistic simulated environments. Using accurate models to replicate real-life vehicle encounters, autonomous vehicles can be driven for millions of miles in a virtual environment in a single day.
