Increasing demands and growing cost pressure in the automotive industry make it increasingly necessary to transfer test scenarios with multiple variants to a virtual world. Driving simulators offer a wide range of solutions, which can be used by technology providers and be developed for OEMs and suppliers. Due to the growing complexity of these systems and a heterogeneous hardware and software landscape, all too often this potential can only be exploited insufficiently.


"Virtual Environments for Testing of Automated Vehicles": This central idea of the 3rd Symposium on Driving Simulation on 9 November 2017 in Braunschweig says it all. For the third time, decision-makers and experts from the automotive and commercial vehicle industry, research and IT will be discussing topics related to driving simulation. This year's focus will be on the future challenges in the area of virtual development, testing and validation of systems for autonomous vehicles. The 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting and a visit to the driving simulator of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) will take place on 8 November 2017 in the run-up to the symposium.


The aim of the event jointly organized by the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (asc(s), the DLR and the Virtual Dimension Center (VDC) Fellbach is to offer representatives from science and industry better access to the topic of driving simulation. To this end, the symposium's presentations will deal with the areas of standardization, infrastructure, and modeling of the environment as well as dynamic modeling/simulation. In the accompanying exhibition, visitors will also be given the opportunity to view and test current technologies and components of driving simulation.


The symposium will be accompanied by a series of other events for experts in driving simulation: At the 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting on 8 November, the status quo of the project will be presented as well as some use cases. Afterwards, participants will be able to exchange views with their peers during a guided tour of the DLR simulator and a get-together.


OPTIS places driving simulation at the heart of smart lighting. Thanks to VRX, a real-time interactive driving simulator, the company enables the transportation industry to virtually reproduce the performance and behavior of advanced headlamp systems to provide smarter and safer lighting to their customer.
