After in-depth consultation with the customer, it became clear that, in the very near future, they would need to simultaneously validate self-driving systems and simulate and manage entire fleets of moving vehicles.
Instead of relying on two GSG-6 simulators coupled with a time server, Orolia recommended upgrading their testing infrastructure to our software-based advanced GSG-8 GNSS Simulator.
The extraordinary flexibility and modularity of the GSG-8 platform, powered by the Skydel Software Engine, will allow them to increase their simulation capabilities over time and generate the extremely complex scenarios required for self-driving vehicle validation.
For example, the GSG-8 enables them to generate multiple independent scenarios synchronized with each other. The customer can also simulate all types of scenarios on demand with the simple activation of a software option. The HIL (Hardware–in-the-loop) interface of the GSG-8 allows users to send real-time information such as vehicle position and attitude as the simulation progresses, with precise timestamps and high update rate (100-1000 Hz).
With the GSG-8 platform, the CRF is now capable of testing multiple complex autonomous driving protocols faster and easier with a budget-friendly simulation solution. They can also quickly develop new scenarios without needing to re-invest in an expensive new solution. The modularity and upgradable software of the GSG-8 can adapt to their changing needs and the complexity of new testing requirements.
Orolia’s forward-thinking, software-based GSG-8 offers them high-end performance while saving them time and money.
