Introducing Simcenter Prescan360, a simulation-based validation and verification framework for autonomous vehicles

Reading time: 3 minutes


The development of autonomous vehicles has a major impact on the development toolchain of car manufacturers. Their automated driving systems need to be safe enough to be able to react in a safe manner to all possible traffic scenarios under any possible weather and road conditions. The technology enabling this is complex. It requires a validation and verification process that allows for performance testing in many circumstances.

Siemens Digital Industries Software has recently introduced a new methodology for the validation and verification of automated driving systems, called Simcenter Prescan360. This article describes this integrated toolchain, enabling cluster-based simulation of many thousands of scenarios in an orchestrated fashion.
