Velodyne and Ansys partnered to transform autonomous vehicle safety

Velodyne and Ansys are developing software models of next-generation automotive lidar sensors to provide substantially improved hazard identification capabilities for highly advanced AVs. The collaboration incorporates Velodyne’s lidar design into Ansys’ virtual sensor suite and expedites automakers’ integration of Velodyne’s sensor into AVs, delivering industry-leading driving safety and a drastically faster path to market.  

Velodyne is collaborating with Ansys to integrate an encrypted ‘black box’ physics-based lidar sensor model into Ansys® VRXPERIENCE, a real-time interactive driving simulator that models, evaluates, and validates lidar designs within a highly realistic virtual environment. As OEMs integrate Velodyne’s lidar into their ADAS portfolio, VRXPERIENCE will reduce development costs by enhancing lidar placement within AVs and validating AV performance.
