Dassault Systèmes has launched a new industry solution for the automotive segment, “Smart, Safe & Connected Car” – a solution that accelerates the development of embedded systems while achieving ISO26262 safety standards and AUTOSAR compliancy.
Dassault’s “Smart, Safe & Connected Car” industry solution is comprised of multiple applications implemented in a modular approach and focused on early virtual vehicle validation. With this, automakers can manage vehicle complexity by uniting various disconnected domain specific tools on a single platform, thus enabling dynamic testing of multiple systems engineering disciplines. Users can achieve knowledge re-use, safety targets and reduction of embedded electronics development time and cost.
Monica Menghini (Executive vice President, Industry and Marketing, Dassault Systèmes): Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables the integration of mechanical, electronic, and software systems to simulate and validate the digital vehicle. This solution will help our customers move from vehicle attribute to vehicle experience, leading to shortened time to market and increased product quality of complex embedded systems.
Electronics and software currently represent over 80% of vehicle innovation, with much of that focused on active or passive safety, entertainment and performance. Recognizing this trend, leading automotive industry players have worked together to develop the Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) standard. Additionally, automakers are tasked with meeting the new ISO26262 Electric/Electronic functional safety standard, which requires complete process documentation, analysis and verification.
