ADAS & Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo Conference Stuttgart
Our Managing Director, Dr Amir Soltani, attended the event as a speaker to present about the hot topic of Distributed Simulation and KAN Engineering's latest developments in this domain.
Summary of his speech: "The critical role of simulation in the successful development, test, verification and validation of Connected and Autonomous vehicles is now being widely acknowledged. Still, no single simulation tool is available that can cover the entire development V-cycle. Under Zenzic's Interoperable Simulation Across CAM Testbed UK, KAN Engineering has delivered a novel solution that enables seamless deployment between various stages of development from MIL, SIL, HIL, DIL, VIL, test tracks and real-world roads, to carry out similar tests in different simulation contexts and geographical locations, all from a single place!"
Project Showcase: Zenzic Interoperable Simulation Across CAM Testbed UK Phase 3

Celebrating KAN Engineering's 3rd Anniversary!
KAN has indeed been thriving over the past year and this celebration was a reminder for all of us that how far we have come.
Once again, we want to take the chance to thank every individual team member for being so amazing, inspiring, and dedicated.
Looking forward to another remarkable year ahead.
We are officially an ASAM Member!
KAN Engineering is now a member of ASAM, where we will be directly involved in the development and implementation of new OpenX standards.
ASAM focuses on standardizing the data exchanges between the many tools used in the process to develop and validate vehicles, their components, and their control systems.
ASAM members turn ideas into projects and drive projects into standards with the goal to implement them into products and use them in development tool chains.
Project Launch: Zenzic Interoperable Simulation Across CAM Testbed UK Phase 3
This project will deliver an extended CAM Testbed UK interoperable simulation framework and set a clear vision for future operationalisation. The project builds on previous phase 2 work, and will feature a real world customer and use case and will deliver a demonstrator event in March 2022.
The project is in collaboration with, Arcadis, Reed Mobility, Applus+ IDIADA, Smart Mobility Living Lab: London, HORIBA MIRA, Millbrook and University of Leeds and will utilise the Safety Pool™ Scenario Database, operated by WMG, University of Warwick.
Project Demonstration: Zenzic Interoperable Simulation Across CAM Testbed UK Phase 2
About the project: Zenzic has been working with CAM Testbed UK to demonstrate potential features of interoperability. Millbrook, Midlands Future Mobility, WMG, University of Warwick and Smart Mobility Living Lab: London have provided StreetDrone as the customer, with a seamless testing experience across their interoperable simulation testing capabilities.
CAM Testbed UK’s ability to offer a world-class solution to the challenge of providing a comprehensive virtual testing environment was successfully demonstrated through this project. And at the Demo Event the proof-of-concept foundations for the creation of an interoperable simulation environment for CAM Testbed UK was showcased.
Presenting at Cranfield University Autonomous Vehicle Society
Dr. Amir Soltani, Founder and Managing Director of KAN Engineering Ltd. discussed about Distributed Simulation at Cranfield Autonomous Vehicle Society’s webinar, attended by Cranfield University students, faculty members and industrial partners.
This hot topic is a new trend in the domain of Modelling and Simulation (M&S) for Autonomous Vehicle applications!

Project Launch: Zenzic Interoperable Simulation Across CAM Testbed UK Phase 2
With the CAM Testbed UK working together to push the UK to the forefront of the self-driving testing and development industry globally, core to this collaboration is what Zenzic calls Strategic Projects – driving further collaboration and interoperability across CAM Testbed UK.
The projects look for opportunities to combine the capabilities and knowledge across the facilities to solve common problems and from that provide best practice out to the wider ecosystem.
The Interoperable Simulation project, funded and to be led by Zenzic, will design, develop and implement a distributed interoperable simulation environment across CAM Testbed UK and beyond, with a real-world use case demonstrator event in March 2021.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, KAN Engineering experienced a very unique year indeed, however, looking back at the two remarkable years we have had, we are extremely happy to be blooming and celebrating our 2nd anniversary!
So many achievements for such short time, and for that, we are grateful of our young and talented team, without them this would not have been possible, and would like to thank every one of them!
Here's to celebrating many more years of KAN Engineering!

KAN Engineering's Last Day before COVID-19 Lockdown. It's Not a Goodbye, It's a See You Soon!
Due to the outbreak of #COVID-19 pandemic, it is not unknown to anyone that a lot of businesses have been affected by it and we’ve all had to adjust our work style somehow. However, to survive, we must learn how to look at the challenges as opportunities rather than threads!
Thanks to the #COVID-19 we have a bit of extra time to work on design and prototyping our new ideas. Of course, our facilities are limited at home, but we will make it work, as always.
We will be posting on our social media so follow us to keep updated.
On behalf of KAN Engineering, we would like to wish everyone to be safe.
