Digital Twin of a proving ground enables new testing and simulation concepts

Our toolchain for Simulation-based development and Validation of ADAS and AD systems follows a modular top-down principle. From data with relatively coarse resolution but global coverage to measurements with highest resolution and accuracy, the presented toolchain enables engineers and researchers to build digital twins and Simulation environments with optimal model complexity for the given tasks. We present our procedure for model creation and the resulting possibilities for the Verification and Validation of modern automotive systems.
