Improving Emergency Response in the Era of ADAS Vehicles in the Smart City


Abstract: "Management of emergency vehicles can be fostered within a Smart City, i.e. an urban environment in which many IoT devices are orchestrated by a distributed intelligence able to suggest to road users the best course of action in different traffic situations. By extending MATSim (Multi-Agent Transport Simulation Software), we design and test appropriate mitigation strategies when tr... » read more

Physics-Based Sensor Validation Via Ansys: Driving New Automotive Innovations


Autonomous driving is revolutionizing the global automotive industry. With every new model, cars are smarter and more capable of independently responding to external signals like lane markings, highway signs, other cars and pedestrians. However, formulating a correct response via artificial intelligence depends on flawless sensor performance. With so many sensors supporting the advanced driv... » read more

Comprehensive Simulation Of Power Electronics Systems


Power electronics systems are at the heart of many important and growing industries, from all-electric vehicles to renewable energy generation. Optimizing the design of these systems requires accurate modeling and simulation long before construction of physical prototypes. SPICE-level simulation has been the traditional solution and, while it still plays a key role, it cannot satisfy all requir... » read more

Multiphysics Simulations For RFICs And SoCs For 5G Applications


System-on-chips (SoCs) and radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) for 5G smartphones and networks need to manage huge amounts of antenna data and offer significantly high processing capabilities in thermally and power-constrained environments. ANSYS multiphysics simulations simultaneously solve power, thermal, variability, timing, electromagnetics and reliability challenges across the spec... » read more
