How to maximize the value of AV and ADAS features

By Kelsey Robuck

Building trustworthy advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AV) systems is one of the most complex and daunting tasks for automotive manufacturers today. Defining the system upfront provides clarity, sets clear objectives, manages the scope, mitigates risk, supports efficient development workflows, ensures compliance, and facilitates system integration. A well-defined system lays the foundation for safe, robust, cost-effective ADAS and AV development.

Boost ADAS and AV design with a functional digital twin

To determine which ADAS and autonomous driving features will add the most value to your project, you must understand early in the development cycle if they can be incorporated safely, securely and efficiently into the electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture at hand without violating system constraints.

By frontloading the design and optimization of these features with the functional digital twin, you can assess risk and make decisions about the required hardware, software, and relevant scenarios before the cost of engineering changes becomes prohibitive later in the development process. Additionally, the trustworthy models that comprise the functional digital twin establish traceability and enable you to virtually validate that 100% of requirements have been met before you begin physical testing.

Make better decisions faster about ADAS and AV system design

The potential for liability and the lack of standardized requirements around the development of autonomous operations make engineering signoffs more crucial than ever. We have a dedicated autonomous driving system development solution that maximizes engineering confidence.

By leveraging the functional digital twin, automotive manufacturers can develop safe, secure, and compliant autonomous operation systems faster. Composed of the most trustworthy, accurate virtual models, the digital twin enables you to define, explore, simulate, and evaluate all aspects of the autonomous vehicle systems with the broadest range of critical scenarios, reducing uncertainty and giving you the confidence to sign off on your ADAS and AV system designs.
