Simulation model for traffic and environment simulations

To support the development and testing of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), dSPACE has extended its simulation model for traffic and environment simulations. dSPACE ASM Traffic 3.0, part of the Automotive Simulation Models (ASM) library, provides all the features necessary for using simulation to test active safety systems, such as autonomous emergency braking and emergency steering assistance. Engineers can verify and demonstrate ADAS capabilities early in the development phases when using this technology. With the ASMs, developers can simulate a test vehicle, urban and rural road networks, a large number of fellow vehicles, and environmental objects such as pedestrians and traffic signs. Used in conjunction with dSPACE’s AutomationDesk, ASM Traffic provides a series of ready-to-use tests for active safety functions according to the European New Car Assessment Program protocol. ASM Traffic features a real-time-capable simulation model and a graphical user interface for defining the necessary components, such as road networks, traffic signs, vehicles, and sensors.
