Web Seminar Tomorrow: CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim 2017: Setting up Traffic and Sensor Targets

Mechanical Simulation is continuing our series of web seminars designed to discuss focused solutions to a variety of vehicle dynamics simulation challenges. These online seminars are the perfect opportunity to learn more about our software from the convenience of your own location. You can watch as our staff demonstrate various features of the software and respond to your questions.

Please join us tomorrow, Wednesday, April 26 at 10:00 am EDT for our CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim 2017: Setting up Traffic and Sensor Targets web seminar.

In support of CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim usage for ADAS, autonomous/automated driving development, and traffic scenarios, this WebEx will provide an overview of the capabilities of our traffic and sensor targets, including screen options and import/export variables.

The traffic and sensor targets in CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim, also referred to as moving objects, support a substantial amount of customization that allow end-users the option of anywhere from 1 to 99 uniquely defined objects, where some or all of the moving objects can be either moving or stationary. Control of these objects can be via the GUI with data fields for heading angle, initial position, speed, etc. As the complexity of the simulation grows, control of these moving objects can be via VS Commands and/or Simulink, and since these moving objects run at the same time step as the VehicleSim math model, they are capable of running in, and being controlled during, operation on a real-time target such as dSPACE ds1006 and SCALEXIO, NI-VeriStand, ETAS LabCar, and Opal-RT RT-Lab.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Traffic clusters
  • Individual sensor targets
  • Object Recycling
  • Control of the traffic with VS Commands, Generic Tables, and Simulink
  • Reuseable traffic vehicle definitions via the Symbol Stack
  • Speed control profiles
  • Use of multiple moving objects as lane detection markers

You can view the full list of upcoming web seminars on our website.

Please visit our WebEx page to sign up.

We look forward to you joining us!
