Siemens PLM Software and the Michigan-based American Center for Mobility (ACM) have entered into a partnership aimed to bring Siemens’ Simulation and Test solution for Automotive to ACM to support virtual and physical testing and validation of automated and connected vehicles.
The American Center for Mobility is a nonprofit testing, education and product development facility for future mobility, designed to enable safe validation and self-certification of connected and automated vehicle technology, and to accelerate the development of voluntary standards. ACM is one of 10 U.S. DOT designated Automated Vehicle Proving Grounds in the U.S.
Included in the Siemens Simulation and Test solution for Automotive is Simcenter™ PreScan™ software for virtual simulation, developed by recently acquired TASS International and now part of the Simcenter™ portfolio.
The Simcenter PreScan simulation environment produces highly realistic, physics-based simulation of raw sensor data for potential driving scenarios and traffic situations.
The company is already part of similar strategic initiatives in Singapore and the Netherlands, once considered to be early adopters of AV technology, applications and solutions and now leaders in the testing and deployment of autonomous vehicles and infrastructure in real-world environments.
With this partnership Siemens PLM Software also secures a seat on ACM’s Industry Advisory Board which will help advance its already strong position in autonomous vehicles and automotive overall.
The other leading companies in supporting ACM including are AT&T, Visteon Corporation, Toyota, Ford and Hyundai America Technical Center Inc., Microsoft, Subaru of America, Inc., and Adient.
