Recently autonomous vehicles are focusing on SAE automation level 3, and are going to level 4 and 5 in the near future. These systems feature an increasing number of sensors, but are lacking a Simulation environment which can incorporate high performance sensor models. Current Simulation environments for systems containing RADAR or LIDAR use Measurement data and high level behavior is modeled using FMI. In this work we will show the first integrated Simulation environment which incorporates RADAR and LIDAR Simulation, together with SystemC AMS sensor models. The RADAR and LIDAR Simulation enables the creation of virtual driving scenarios. SystemC AMS models are an industry Standard for high performance models of sensors, processors and other electronic components.
