Company and Product News

Siemens Digital Industries Software announced Simcenter SCAPTOR software for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) data collection, further expanding the Simcenter portfolio for autonomous vehicle performance engineering.  Simcenter SCAPTOR combines hardware and software to record, visualize and replay high-fidelity raw data, and greatly Advanced Driver Assistancespeeds the development process.  By linking ADAS development to noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and vehicle dynamics performance, the Simcenter portfolio now offers a 360-degree view of performance attributes of autonomous vehicles.  This enables a closed-loop development process for autonomous vehicles with a solution that spans the physical and virtual aspects of development, including real-world data collection, 1D and 3D modeling for system development and virtual testing.  Simcenter is part of the Xcelerator portfolio, Siemens’ integrated portfolio of software, services and application development platform.

Simcenter SCAPTOR, developed using proven industry-leading technology from ADAS developer b-plus, helps companies merge test and simulation through the phases of data capture, analysis, exploration, verification and validation and back to data collection.  The new capabilities can be used to create a powerful toolchain to record, visualize and replay high-fidelity raw data.  It can greatly speed the development process and close the loop of the autonomous development process through real-world ADAS data collection.  The solution is flexible, modular, adapts to the requirements of advanced sensor technologies, and is robust for long-term in-vehicle usage.
