PROSTEP and autonomous driving
Autonomous driving is of strategic importance for digital transformation of the automotive industry and a promising future market for PROSTEP. We are therefore actively participating in key sponsored projects such as V&V and SET Level and significantly expanding our know-how in the fields of model-based systems engineering (MBSE), electrics/electronics development and software development.
Because testing autonomous vehicles on the road would be far too risky and time-consuming, they need to be validated digitally. Leading carmakers, automotive suppliers, research institutes and software companies are working together to develop uniform tool chains and methods for the digital validation of highly automated (Level 4) and autonomous (Level 5) driving functions in the V&V and SET Level projects, which are being sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). PROSTEP is playing a major role in both projects. As a vendor-neutral PLM consulting and software company, we will provide our project partners with support for the testing and industrialization of the project results. Within the framework of the SET Level project, we will also be developing the basis for a solution that will ensure the traceability of the simulation results.
