Valeo, a global leader in automotive technology, and Applied Intuition, a vehicle software supplier, are partnering to provide a digital twin platform for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) sensor simulation. The joint solution will allow automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to bring safe and reliable ADAS features to market faster.
Valeo and Applied Intuition’s platform will provide OEMs with a digital twin database representing locations all around the world, offering an extensive and diverse set of scenarios and environments for ADAS perception testing and validation. Using the digital twins in Applied Intuition’s sensor simulation product, Spectral, OEMs can create more accurate simulations than using traditional simulation methods. This allows OEMs to ensure the safety, performance, and reliability of critical algorithms and to develop production-ready ADAS perception systems more rapidly.
The digital twin platform focuses on simulating Valeo’s SCALATM 3 LiDAR and expands to other Valeo sensors for software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing.
“Valeo has always been at the forefront of automotive innovation,” said Clement Nouvel, CTO of Valeo LiDAR. “Our partnership with Applied Intuition exemplifies our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible and how fast autonomous driving features can be brought to end-customers while improving safety. Together, we aim to redefine the future of LiDAR perception through digital twin technology.”
“Digital twins create huge advantages for ADAS simulation,” said Peter Ludwig, CTO and Co-Founder of Applied Intuition. “Digital-twin-based simulations achieve more breadth and accuracy than any other simulation technology. Paired with Applied Intuition’s deterministic Spectral simulator and accurate sensor models of the Valeo SCALATM 3 LiDAR, our digital twins are paving the way for safer, more rapid deployment of ADAS systems worldwide.”
The partnership between Valeo and Applied Intuition marks a significant milestone in the automotive industry’s journey toward safer, more efficient, and more intelligent mobility solutions. The two companies will continue to innovate and build state-of-the-art technology that enables faster, safer, and more reliable transport.
