dSPACE joins the Automated with Velodyne Lidar partner program
dSPACE and Velodyne Lidar Inc. have entered into a partnership to accelerate future developments of lidar technologies for autonomous driving. To this end, dSPACE, a leader and partner for simulation and validation in the automotive industry, has joined the Velodyne program ‘Automated with Velodyne.’ The program aims to accelerate ecosystem interactions and rapidly integrate lidar innovations into a range of autonomous solutions including autonomous driving.
Participation in the Automated with Velodyne program gives dSPACE the opportunity to emulate new laser sensors from Velodyne into simulation solutions at an early development stage. Moreover, dSPACE will develop simulation models for testing and validation, and provide the sensor simulation environment for validating camera, lidar and radar sensors throughout the development process – accelerating customer’s development projects.
The dSPACE simulation solution generates point clouds in real time to simulate objects. The simulation models help determine the most effective positioning of the sensor on the vehicle (sweet spot), as well as the sensor limits (corner cases). Through the partnership program, Velodyne’s customers can seamlessly integrate sensor models from dSPACE into their development activities.
