PreScan is a physics-based simulation platform that is used in the automotive industry for development of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that are based on sensor technologies such as radar, laser/lidar, camera and GPS. PreScan is also used for designing and evaluating vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication applications as well as autonomous driving applications. PreScan can be used from model-based controller design (MIL) to real-time tests with software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems.
With road vehicles becoming ‘smarter’, their sensors can ‘see’ danger before it happens. The design and testing of these intelligent vehicle systems can be dangerous, costly and time-consuming. PreScan is a dedicated sensor simulation tool for designing active safety systems and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). It enables manufacturers to evaluate their intelligent safety system designs in a wide range of virtual traffic and road environments. With PreScan, advanced vehicle sensors, controls and warnings can be designed that go well beyond existing standards of safety.
"Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) has been using PreScan software for several years now to develop and verify new ADAS functions such as pre-crash. We particularly value the capabilities of the software in the area of scenario definitions, the easy interface to our existing vehicle dynamics models, the broad database of different sensing technologies and the professional support that we receive from the local TASS team. As a result we recently planned to extend our PreScan usage to our autonomous driving development and research."
