Lidar simulation and validation for autonomous vehicles
Lidar simulation and validation for autonomous vehicles

This webinar highlights how lidar simulation can help accelerate the development and testing of autonomous vehicles at all stages of the development lifecycle. As lidar systems become an integral part of the sensor suite for autonomous vehicles, simulation becomes an essential tool for sensor manufacturers, system integrators, and algorithm developers. Our experts will demonstrate how Siemens’ next generation simulation capabilities can ensure that early designs and prototypes can cover safety critical scenarios by using high fidelity physics-based simulation validated against real-life lidar systems.

In this webinar about lidar simulation, you will learn how to:

  • Integrate lidar simulation into current design processes for lidar systems by enhancing the existing workflow for developing and testing signal processing algorithms
  • Use lidar simulation to generate realistic point clouds in real-time that can be used to test and develop perception and sensor fusion algorithms
  • Include high fidelity lidar simulation as part of the testing and validation process of ADAS / AD systems
  • Drive digital transformation of important design processes for sensors and autonomous vehicles

Embracing the Digital Twin with the future of lidar simulation at your fingertips

Through simulation, the virtual world becomes a viable alternative for replacing tests typically performed in the real world. The lidar simulation technology shown by Siemens in this webinar provides new levels of innovation for sensor engineers and ADAS/AV system developers. Engineers can now use virtual models at each step of the development process for lidar systems to identify problems early and speed up time to market. Simulation supports both the design process and serves as a prototype platform for early product tests before using any physical components. This allows product developers to test more complex situations on a broader array of configurations than it would be possible via traditional physical testing methods.
