Virtual Co-Simulation Platform for Test and Validation of ADAS and Autonomous Driving
Vehicles equipped with one or several functions of Advanced Driver Assistant System (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) technology are more mature and prevalent nowadays. Vehicles being smarter and driving being easier is an unstoppable trend. In the near future, intelligent vehicles will be mass produced and running on the road. However, before the mass-production of intelligent vehicles, a lot of experimental tests and validations need to be carried out to insure the safety and reliability of ADAS and AD technology. Although the road test of real vehicles is the most reliable and accurate test method, it cannot meet the need of rapid development of technology research due to high time and financial cost. Therefore, a high-efficient design and evaluation methodology for ADAS and AD development and test is a must. In this paper, a virtual co-simulation platform based on MATLAB/Simulink, OpenModelica and Unity 3D game engine (MOMU) is proposed.
