Virtual development of valet parking and automated parking functions

Simulation environment DYNA4 for function development

  • Seamless integration of your parking functions with the DYNA4 simulation environment. Continous usage from MiL, SiL to HiL tests
  • Virtual 3D world with huge and expandable object catalog including parking garage, many vehicles, pedestrians etc.
  • Detailed driving dynamics for the virtual vehicle
  • GPU based sensor simulation: e.g. camera with configurable distortion and color filters, ultrasonic, lidar, radar sensors
  • Any Ground Truth information available
  • Test automation for thousands of variants of the scene and vehicle parameters
  • Frontloading: Availability of a virtual test vehicle in early development stages
  • Comfortable coupling with development tools such as ROS (Robot Operating System) or ADTF (Automotive Data and Time-Triggered Framework)

Use-Case at Assystem: Virtual development and validation of self-localization algorithms

  • Assystem: Development of algorithms for precise vehicle localization in a parking garage without GPS signals
  • Determination of the relative pose with aid of Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) through combination of an inertial measuring unit (IMU) and a front camera
  • Identification and time tracking of characteristic image areas from the virtual front camera (see green feature tracks on the image and video)
  • Virtual IMU through injection of errors on Ground Truth signals of the vehicle dynamics model
  • Heavily virtualized development to prepare validation in the real vehicle
