Design of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems – A CPS Approach

An automobile is the biggest and most complex connected device used by consumers today. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is one of the fastest growing automotive applications. Stringent government requirements on automotive safety, fuel consumption and technology-focused consumer preferences are fueling the growth of ADAS. Driven primarily by safety, ADAS capabilities were first implemented in premium vehicles as key differentiators to enhance the user experience and protect the vehicle and its occupants. It started with features like parking assistance, adaptive breaking systems (ABS), adaptive cruise control and tire pressure monitoring. Continue reading

Introducing ANSYS SeaScape for Chip Simulation

seahawk seascapeDue to the volumes of data that need to be analyzed and the limits in simulation tool capabilities and processing power, sign-off in chip and electronic system design has traditionally followed a monolithic, margin-based approach that has resulted in larger die-size and longer development times. Today I’d like to tell you about a fundamentally new approach and software architecture called ANSYS SeaScape that will revolutionize chip simulation by harnessing the power of elastic computing, machine learning and big data to perform multiphysics simulations and design more compact, complex chips. This approach has demonstrated its ability speed up chip design and help eliminate many of the inefficiencies of traditional methodologies. Continue reading

Upstream and Downstream of a Hyperloop Pod

If you’re a regular subscriber of the ANSYS blog, you’ve probably already heard about Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Pod Competition. Texas Guadaloop is a team from the University of Texas at Austin that was chosen to participate in this Hyperloop Design Weekend Competition back in late January among 150 other teams after SpaceX accepted our preliminary Design package.

From the beginning of our design iteration, Guadaloop has been committed to creating a simple and executable design. One of the major challenges we encountered in the external configuration of our pod design was determining the aerodynamic viability of propelling our pod through a tube. With the elimination of a compressor in our design, the Kantrowitz limit needed to be actively combated. Continue reading

From Drones to Connected Cars – Code Generation for Safety-Critical Embedded Software

DLR-image007Developing an Internet of Things (IoT) enabled product is a complicated task, whether it’s an autonomous vehicle, a vehicle user interface like a car infotainment system, or a connected factory. IoT-enabled products contain hundreds, if not millions, of lines of embedded software code. And many of these products — and the systems and software that control them — are mission- or safety-critical. Therefore, developers must have confidence that the software code controlling these devices is 100% accurate and responds in the intended manner. Continue reading

Shake, Rattle and Roll! Simulating Vibration, Impact and Fatigue for IoT

Did you know that NASA has shown that 45 percent of the first-day spacecraft electronics failures were due to damage caused by vibrations during launch? That American consumers have spent over $6 billion repairing and replacing smartphones after they’ve been dropped? With the Internet of Things (IoT), electrical devices and systems must be more resilient than ever, resistant to changes in temperature, dust infiltration, electromagnetic interference, vibration, impact, and fatigue.
