Accelerate the development and testing of algorithms for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD)

The automotive industry is continuously advancing assisted driving functions related to safety and is coming forward with more automated driving systems equipped with powerful FPGAs, new sensors, artificial intelligence and predictive controls.

Save time and ensure that all the electronic control units’ (ECUs) functionality, safety and certification requirements are met by running Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) or Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulations on a Speedgoat real-time target machine.  Conveniently explore various perception, planning, control algorithms directly on a vehicle digital twin and design reliable safety-related automation systems in a real time setting.

"The real-time, multi-vehicle simulator built upon Speedgoat hardware is one of the most important building blocks in testing our autonomous racing algorithms before going out on the racetrack against our competitors."
