In Comparison with Difficulties in Chassis and Vehicle Chip, the (Automotive) Industrial Software Represented by Autonomous Driving Simulation is Possibly the Best Field Where IT/AI/VR Firms Can Make Investments

Considering the difficulties they have faced with chassis and vehicle chip, the (automotive) industrial software represented by autonomous driving simulation is possibly the best field in which IT/AI/VR firms can make investments.

In this report that the autonomous driving simulation industry is analytically explored: ranging from simulation platform, vehicle dynamics simulation, sensor simulation, scenario simulation to scenario library.

Simulation technologies seem distant from people’s lives and are hard for laypeople to understand, but this is a key domain in which breakthroughs are being made for automotive sector - even intelligent manufacturing in China - and it deserves significant investment.

Simulation technology is the technology that reveals the behaviors and processes of the system through simulation experiments and numerical computing with simulation hardware and software. Simulation technology found initial use in the early 20th century, for example in the building of water conservancy models in laboratories for research into hydraulics. In the 1940s and 1950s, the burgeoning aviation, aerospace and atomic energy technologies encouraged advances in simulation technology. In the 1960s, computer technology flourished and advanced simulation tools became available, which expedited the evolution of simulation technology.

From the 1990s on, simulation and digital virtualization technologies have been crucial to the research and development of automobiles. The advanced idea to develop cars based on mathematical models and digital simulations has prevailed among automakers worldwide.

Vehicle R&D is becoming ever more sophisticated as cars are becoming smarter and smarter, increasing the cost of vehicle development and leading to a prolonged development cycle. Lots of new technologies in the area of vehicle security are subject to environmental and test security restraints and are hard to carry out effectively. The traditional means for R&D, tests and validation, however, are out of date.

There are dozens of simulation test companies around the globe. Among them, America ranks first by the number of companies, but Germany boasts the largest number of simulation firms in the automotive sector.

It can be seen from the development of the simulation industry that new opportunities are emerging all the time and the emerging companies have sprung up constantly. Simulation tycoons have grown ever more competitive through mergers and acquisitions and have developed hundreds of product categories which are applied in dozens of industries.

Through multiple acquisitions of companies inside and outside the industry, ANSYS dominates the CFD market, developing the embedded codes, beefing up chip encapsulation design, and enriching internal combustion engine simulation products. ANSYS purchased OPTIS in 2018 and improved the simulation technologies dealing with sensors like LiDAR, camera and radar.

The potential of the autonomous driving simulation market has enticed many enterprises outside the automotive sector.
