Dassault Systèmes and Cognata, Ltd. announced that they are partnering to embed Cognata’s Autonomous Vehicle Simulation Suite into Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The partnership will help autonomous vehicle makers define, test and experience autonomous driving throughout the development cycle within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform brings features such as Smart, Safe and Connected to the transportation and mobility industry. Cognata’s simulation solution enables autonomous vehicle manufacturers to run thousands of different scenarios based on various geographic locations, traffic patterns, and weather conditions.
Incorporating the Cognata simulation suite into the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and leveraging CATIA systems engineering and applications, gives engineers a one-stop-shop for autonomous vehicle design, engineering, simulation and program management.
“Simulation is key at all stages of cyber systems engineering. Billions of miles must be virtually run before a car can be considered safe. AI-powered experiences that combines vehicle behavior, sensors and traffic models allow alternative designs to be tested in the concept phase to identify the optimal engineering solution,” said Philippe Laufer, CATIA CEO.
Said Danny Atsmon, CEO and Founder of Cognata, “The earlier simulation is used, the easier it is for engineers to modify each component of the autonomous vehicle and test it through a virtual environment, to see how it works once incorporated in the vehicle and confronted with unexpected edge cases.”
