Digital Transformation Is on the Radar
Collaboration efforts between NI and Elettronica GmbH are facilitating a digital transformation of test and evaluation in the aerospace industry.
At NI, connection is at the heart of what we do. From connecting the dots in technology that show us a path forward to connecting with partners to bring about future advancements, we’re on a mission to Engineer Ambitiously™ today, tomorrow, and for the next 100 years.
That’s why we’re so excited about our strategic alliance with Foretellix, a leading automated driving systems product development, verification, and validation solution provider. With a shared focus on enabling engineers to produce safe and reliable advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AVs), we’re hoping to drive faster time to market at lower development costs together.
We’re witnessing a radical digital transformation happening in the automotive industry presently. And regarding autonomous driving systems, one of the challenges that we’re all facing is the endless number of scenarios that need to be accounted for in order to ensure safe and reliable products reach the market. Whether it’s an ADAS or a vehicle that’s fully autonomous, extensive testing throughout each phase of production needs to occur, and that requires tools and methodologies that are equipped to handle such needs.
With the intention of addressing the need for comprehensive testing and enabling companies to deploy AVs safely and efficiently, Foretellix has developed proven methodologies and solutions with three goals in mind:
1. Decreasing the amount of time necessary for deployment
2. Improving quality in order to avoid costly recalls
3. Reducing development costs through automation
This game-changing alliance between NI and Foretellix has critical implications for the future of AVs. This collaboration brings NI’s solutions for hardware in the loop (HIL), software in the loop (SIL), and ADAS data recording together with Foretellix’s test management platform, Foretify™, which can generate scenarios, identify safety gaps, and optimize the production process. The result of this union? An end-to-end flow that provides a holistic solution that improves scenario-based testing and coverage for customers.
The partnership between NI and Foretellix joins our expert teams in harnessing the best-in-class technological solutions to meet our shared vision of scalable and metric-driven testing. We look forward to drawing upon NI’s test expertise and broad adoption across the automotive supply chain as we work together to help our customers to bring about safe and efficient autonomous systems.
