ANSYS

As fully autonomous vehicles (AVs) edge closer to real-world deployment — on land and in the air — operating safety becomes more critical. AVs require rigorous testing in complex environments, under variable conditions. Physical testing would require billions of miles of driving or flying — a time-consuming, cost-prohibitive, nearly impossible approach. Using simulation to virtually test AVs is the only viable option for validating systems safety and accelerating AV development.

ANSYS 2019 R3 continues to deliver next-generation pervasive engineering simulation solutions for AV’s with the introduction of ANSYS SCADE Vision. Customers can now evaluate the safety of embedded perception systems and ensure AV sensors are free from detection defects.

This latest addition strengthens our autonomous vehicles solution — ANSYS Autonomy — which enables end-to-end simulation. ANSYS Autonomy empowers engineers to perform closed-loop simulation, embedded software development, functional safety and cybersecurity analysis, sensor simulation and human-machine interfaces.

Among a number of other enhancements to the portfolio, ANSYS 2019 R3 also includes the SPEOS Road Library for Sensors Simulation, a comprehensive, retro-reflecting materials database, as well as updates to ANSYS HFSS SBR+ that provide greater accuracy in predicting radar cross section of large targets with curvatures. ANSYS 2019 R3 also includes:

Testimonials

  • I would like to hereby express my vote of confidence in Qfinsoft, in their ability to service and provide a strong support to us as a company.  We have been a customer of Qfinsoft for over a year and I am pleased to compliment them on their impeccable service offered to us thus far

    - Nico Gunther, Powertech Transformers

  • Since the introduction of ANSYS, more students are using first principles and FEA to validate their designs. This year, more than 60% of the projects were using FEA as a standard approach for numerical calculation. This number shows the huge impact ANSYS, had on University of Pretoria. FEA is not anymore a specialised tool for few users but a standard engineering tool easily integrated in the design process.

    - Francesco Pietra, University of Pretoria

  • For their consulting, training and technical support, Qfinsoft (Pty) Ltd must be the first choice of any firm looking for CAE experts

    - Prof G Akdogan, Process Engineering, University of Stellenbosch

  • At Aerospace, we have successfully used the ANSYS suite of tools to design high-performance gas turbine engines. Throughout this program, Qfinsoft provided valuable support and assistance to accelerate the development of our models. Their accessibility, short-turn around times and willingness to go beyond what is expected make them an effective partner on our projects.
