Ansys Collaborates with Sony Semiconductor Solutions to Advance Next-Generation Simulation of Automotive Image SensorsNovember 10, 2023 | PRNewswire
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Ansys collaborated with Sony Semiconductor Solutions (Sony) to enhance high-fidelity image sensor simulation and camera-based features in next-generation automotive applications, including AV and ADAS. Ansys Speos can now seamlessly integrate with Sony's sensor models to streamline development and validation with more precise modeling.
Automotive image sensors must continuously evolve to deliver safer, higher functioning ADAS capabilities. To meet this demand, Ansys developed a novel software interface compatible with Sony's sensor models, which are based on the internal architecture of image sensors used in camera systems. The interface enables high-fidelity virtual camera testing in various scenarios and contexts, reducing the need for ad-hoc physical camera testing and accelerating verification times.
The users of Sony's image sensors will now have access to end-to-end automotive-grade simulation fidelity for spectral effects, high dynamic range (HDR), and LED light flicker mitigation. Users can also reproduce image sensor phenomena, such as motion blur and rolling shutter.
"The collaboration between Ansys and Sony will provide an automotive-grade, end-to-end spectral simulation pipeline from lens models to sensor models for the ADAS perception system developers," said Kenji Onishi, deputy senior general manager, automotive business division, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation. "Sony has prepared a sensor model based on the internal architecture of the image sensors used in camera systems to achieve automotive-grade fidelity."
Physical prototyping and validation are time consuming, costly, and do not offer the bandwidth that simulation and virtual testing provides. Pairing Ansys simulation with Sony's sensor models alleviates these challenges through virtual testing. This is particularly beneficial for edge-case scenarios, such as when exiting tunnels.
"The Ansys and Sony technology collaboration facilitates rapid development and verification of camera features for AV and ADAS applications," said John Lee, vice president and general manager of the electronics, semiconductor, and optics business unit at Ansys. "As a result, the joint workflow yields more robust simulations, greater predictive accuracy, higher-fidelity images, and, ultimately, more reliable AV and ADAS applications."
Ansys announced that finance veteran Rachel Pyles will become the company’s new chief financial officer, effective February 22, 2024. Pyles replaces Nicole Anasenes, who previously announced her planned departure from Ansys to focus on advisory and board work. Anasenes will remain with the company as a strategic adviser until June 2024 to ensure a smooth transition.
Ansys and the motion technology company Schaeffler AG announced they are extending their agreement for an additional three years. Schaeffler will rely on Ansys to standardize product development workflows, reduce waste from physical prototypes, and lower the company’s overall carbon footprint through digital transformation.
Ansys announced Fluent Web UI, a web-based technology that enables users to remotely access simulations from any device. Fluent Web UI provides an interface for Ansys Fluent, an industry-leading CFD solver with native GPUs that can speed time-to-result by almost 10x. Users are now able to run, control, and monitor simulations on the cloud or on-premises high-performance computing clusters.
The latest release from Ansys, 2024 R1, introduces an elevated user experience designed to increase digital engineering productivity with AI. Combined with an open architecture, 2024 R1 streamlines engineering workflows, facilitates stronger collaboration, fosters real-time interactions, and elevates project outcomes.
Ansys and DXOMARK are entering a new partnership to provide an end-to-end camera solution that bridges the gap between physical measurements and simulation.
