Achieving reliable safety arguments for Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems () requires precise, consistent data across various test methods and environments. In the past, simulations were hindered by limited computing resources, leading to designs that prioritized minimal memory and computational needs. These often included visually plausible but not necessarily physically accurate representations. Such simulations, used primarily in early development stages, didn't require stringent physical correctness in modeling. ADAS
However, advancements in computing power and techniques have elevated the role of virtual testing in all stages of development. This advancement has increased the demand for "digital twins" or highly accurate virtual representations of real-world entities, crucial for enhancing physical sensor simulations. Consequently, there's an essential need for precise modeling of material properties, ensuring that 3D models and their physical attributes are consistently exchangeable among different platforms and stakeholders through a standardized process. Simulation
This project suggests creating a standardized format for material properties, closely linked with their respective 3D models. These models should have a uniform semantic structure, containing all necessary details for accurate portrayal across various tools and procedures.
Notably, there's a shift towards modular, distributed architectures in automotive toolchains. For these systems to work seamlessly, they must be able to exchange information accurately among different subsystems and models. The project recommends enhancing ASAM Simulation's Sensor Views with the defined material properties. OSI
The project's outcomes will significantly contribute to more physically accurate simulations. However, for a fully comprehensive , factors like weather and environmental conditions, including rain and fog, must also be considered. These elements are beyond this project's current scope and are earmarked for future exploration. Simulation
