Simulation software for engineering of autonomous heavy equipment

This white paper considers the benefits of simulation solutions for designers and engineers in the heavy-duty vehicle industry, from conceptualization to realization of autonomous machines.


It discusses the latest progress in the areas of virtual vehicle development and testing, simulated sensor development, creating virtual working environments, and presents how the effective and fluid integration of these simulation technologies has been achieved in Simcenter™ software, which is part of the Siemens Xcelerator™ portfolio, the comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software and services from Siemens Digital Industries Software.


MBSE for Heavy Equipment Engineers


Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is a perfect match for the development of autonomous vehicles. The adoption of simulation allows to development of the digital twin of both the machine as well as its interacting environment. Thus, engineers can virtually explore the autonomous vehicle designs, as well as accelerate advanced control verification and validation, which can be tough for vehicle durability and expensive if pursued using a classical physical testing approach.
