Improving the design of ADAS systems in harsh weather conditions

Identifying and understanding how a car interacts with water is vital for maximizing critical attributes like safety, reliability, and quality. Engineers are concerned with analyzing how external aerodynamics design impacts window clarity during inclement weather. It becomes stressful and dangerous to the driver when water impairs vision to side-view mirrors and even on the front/rear windshield. The use of CFD simulation and digital twins early in the design phase accelerates design validation and limit costly re-design once a prototype is built. Engineers can evaluate new water management ideas before the first physical prototype is built, helping OEMs reduce costs and time to market.

Design exploration earlier in development cycles allows users to go beyond evaluating a single design and consider hundreds of possible scenarios before selecting the preferred approach.

Improving ADAS systems design in harsh weather conditions

This webinar will focus on the interaction between rainwater and the vehicle's external aerodynamic design, including LIDAR and other sensors like RADAR. Our industry experts will look at the soiling impact from rain and the spray from other vehicles. They will demonstrate how virtual results can be brought into an autonomous simulation to evaluate the sensor performance, focusing on the radar sensor.

You will learn how to:

  • Improve visibility of windshield, cameras, and sensors early in the design phase
  • Validate installed radar performance before the first prototype is built
