CarCAD is a City traffic simulation for virtual testing of ADAS and autonomous driving, it is aimed to Verify and Validate of ADAS in a Realistic Environment Simulation using real-time simulation of ADAS sensors. CarCAD provides a simulated data fusion interface that is required for implementing environment perception systems for automated vehicles. The data fusion can be configured on a graphical basis (Including Cameras, Radars and Lidars sensors), which leads to massive time savings compared to a programmatic implementation. There are multiple Use cases where you can use CarCAD , You can build quickly a Dangerous traffic situation, characterize the sensors for your data fusion layer :
Then integrate your Algorithms (AEB, LKA,..) on the simulated environment and check Hazardous scenarios like the EURO NCAP scenarios .
Then setup your MIL environment for your ADAS algorithm, integrate the algorithm under test for this scenario, using the data fusion interface. And test your Algorithm in a total simulated scenario.
Then Setup your Closed loop HIL environment, Send the Simulated detection messages over CAN to the ECU under test, and test the Requests from your ADAS ECU.
Grey: Free space
Orange: Radar detections
Blue: Obscured areas from the front cars
Green: Camera detections from the front cars
Compatible with other tools :
you can interface CarCAD with multiple know platforms (Nvidia, Dspace, ..) to send CAN messages and synch. and replay on CANoe
