Slide Delivering Innovation

You …

Need an ECAV simulation environment?

Getting confused with dozens of available products? overwhelmed with uninterrupted marketing companies? Or frustrated with unhelpful sales pitches? All of this leaving you unsure of how to start.

Need an integrated and seamless simulation environment?

Have a range of isolated simulation toolsets and software packages, which are not covering your full product development process as an integrated and seamless simulation environment, with the right level of fidelity and flexibility?

Need to use simulation tools for your R&D project or new product development?

But unsure which software package, Hardware/Software setup or Simulator suits you?

Need to upgrade your simulation capabilities?

Do you have a tight budget and timeline? Not sure which simulation setup meets your short-term objectives and long-term goals in order to maximise your Return of Investment?

The recent advancement of connected and autonomous technologies highlighted the critical role of Modelling and Simulation for the design, development, test and validation of advanced automotive products and systems. The simulation market is bursting with hundreds of products and toolsets offered by many (large and small) vendors, with the promise to address all your simulation challenges and requirements.

But the untold reality is that each simulation product has its own strengths and weaknesses. Many simulation packages can deliver simulation capabilities in specific areas or focus on only a portion of the scenarios needed to ensure the robust performance of self-driving vehicles on the road. This is especially true for real-time (and faster than real-time) simulation applications and production level Verification and Validation (V&V). When a company developing ECAV products or services wants to take a comprehensive approach to virtual testing, where do they go? what do they choose?

Investing in simulation toolchains as an integral part of the development process of advanced products, such as ECAVs, involves long-term commitments and has implications to the user companies. Making the right decisions about the simulation tools/assets and their successful implementation and effective utilisations, requires profound and multi-disciplinary expertise and knowledge based on sound techno-economical feasibility studies, considering company’s short term and long term plans/objectives.

As an independent and impartial engineering consultant with a world-class team of experts and long term successful track record on development, implementation and utilisation of a wide range of simulation tools and techniques…

Advanced
Modeling & Simulation

Vehicle simulation is our core competency at KAN Engineering. We know the details, strengths, and weaknesses of most of the available simulation tools and software in the market, backed by our substantial experience in developing and utilising a wide range of simulation tools/techniques. We have a deep understanding of how to effectively utilise the simulation tools and harness their capabilities for the design, development, testing, and validation of today’s complex automotive products and systems. This is gained from our long-term contributions in several multi-disciplinary technology development projects and by collaborating with a wide range of global vendors.

We bring leading-edge experience on the development of advanced simulation systems for various automotive applications, including (but not limited to) chassis control systems, HEV (Hybrid and Electric Vehicles), ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and CAV (Connected and Autonomous Vehicles).

We are keen to share our knowledge and experiences with you and to work together to understand and formalise your unique requirements / circumstances and efficiently turn them into bespoke solutions that satisfy your short-term and long-term goals, considering your budget.

What we will provide is a economic, full solution for your advanced vehicle simulation enquiries and subsystems (Hardware, Software, IT Infrastructure, and Data Storage/Management). These include:

  • Initial feasibility study and technology selections (local or cloud-based)
  • Design of simulation architectural (distributed or central)
  • Definition of subsystems specifications
  • Vendors selection and negotiation
  • Detail design of the required software interfaces, APIs, FMI, FMU, DDS Middleware, ROS bridges, Simulation Manager, Scenario Manager, Test Oracle.
  • Development of simulation models and assets (environment, road, street furniture, vehicle dynamics, traffic, etc.) in: rFpro, IPG, VI-Grade, SCANeR, Prescan, Vissim, Aimsun, Matlab/Simulink, ROS, Unity, Unreal, to name a few.
  • Complete system installation, integration, implementation, and commissioning
  • System (corrective and preventive) maintenance
  • Technical support for your day-to-day simulation tasks (to act as your engineering team)
  • Training of your technical staff
