Several challenges exist for engineers testing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) /Automated Driving (AD) software today - integrating code developed in different environments, bringing in recorded data from real world to testing environment, synthesizing scenarios for corner cases, building a simulation and testing framework for desktop and real time testing to name a few. 

In this webinar we will explore how ADAS engineers can build a simulation framework for testing ADAS algorithms in perception, planning and control domains. We will also discuss workflows on test automation from linking requirements to automation of tests to code assessment.


In this 45-minute webinar we will explore through reference examples and user stories:

  • Why simulation is key for frontloading ADAS/AD Software
  • Components of a simulation framework for testing three domains ADAS / AD software – perception, planning and controls
  • Generating Scenarios from recorded data and Synthesizing scenarios
  • Using a test automation framework for linking requirements, automating tests, generating reports and accessing code
  • Real time testing ADAS / AD software using Hardware in Loop systems
