AnsysCES 400x275Pittsburgh-based Ansys has announced it will showcase how simulation solutions are paving the way for sustainable mobility during next week’s CES 2022 in Las Vegas. The company said it will present industry-leading initiatives in electrification, autonomy, and connected mobility.

The company said simulation is a driving force to help automotive OEMs and suppliers’ engineering teams go to market faster while also meeting safety and performance requirements. This can include things like electrified powertrain specifications, emerging alternative fuels, autonomous shuttles and the latest in lidar technology.

For example, MAZDA Motor Corporation has been working with Anays on its MAZDA CO-PILOT CONCEPT project to actively employ advanced technologies for driver assistance systems. Through Ansys, MAZDA performs simulation-based virtual verification of optical functions during the early development stage from adaptive driving beams to the camera, lidar and radar systems that are essential to the realization of autonomous vehicle (AV) and  ADAS technology.

“Ansys enables efficient and comprehensive development and verification while improving safety quality,” said Toru Yoshioka, deputy general manager at MAZDA. “Ansys enables our team to promote model-based development and significantly reduce the man-hours and cost of physical verification through a one-stop environment, from requirements to design to digital verification.”

At CES, the company said it will provide attendees with interactive glimpses into additional ongoing collaborations that are promoting sustainable mobility, including:

  • EasyMile: Showcasing how Ansys medini analyze supports the all-electric, Level 4 autonomous vehicle with analysis of electronically controlled safety-related functions at concept, system, software and hardware levels.
  • Innoviz Technologies: Demonstrating how Ansys solutions are enhancing lidar technology to support safe autonomous driving.
  • Arbe: Exhibiting its latest 4D Imaging Radar solution with 2K high resolution to differentiate true threats from false alarms on the road.
  • REE Automotive: Presenting its latest electric vehicle platform and how Ansys is supporting simulation to bring the technology to market.
  • Velodyne: Displaying how Ansys and Velodyne are developing highly accurate physics-based models of Velodyne's lidar sensor to detect and track driving hazards for AVs.
  • Ouster: Showcasing its recently unveiled DF series solid-state lidar sensors for high-volume automotive production programs, including its breakthrough long-range sensor for highway autonomy and collision avoidance. Ouster will also exhibit its OS series scanning lidar powered by its new L2X chip in simulated fog, rain, and vibration test conditions to demonstrate performance, reliability, and durability in inclement weather and challenging operational environments.
  • NXP Semiconductors: Explaining how Ansys medini analyze is helping to enhance EV battery management systems and bring to market in line with the latest regulations.
  • Project Arrow: Hosting a VR display running an Ansys simulation by the Automotive Parts Manufacturer's Association of Canada.

“2022 promises to be a pivotal year in democratization of simulation software to accelerate digital engineering transformation,” said Prith Banerjee, chief technology officer at Ansys. “Virtual prototyping and testing create new business opportunities while also reducing costs and slashing development time. We look forward to showcasing our industry-leading mobility solutions and engaging with our customers and partners at CES.”
