The new scenario editor integrated in version 6.0 of IPG Automotive’s CarMaker enables virtual generation of scenarios with varying levels of detail depending on the individual use case. With the tool, generic scenarios can be manually created and configured. In addition, it facilitates the processing of imported real-world roads from map or measurement data obtained in the real environment.
The Scenario Editor comprises a multitude of functions for quick manual scenario generation. Complex traffic situations can be created precisely without further expenditures, and test scenarios thus be generated that are both generic as well as realistic. To this end, the focus is on the easy definition of road networks and the comfortable configuration of scenarios with static and dynamic objects via drag and drop. Any changes to the scenario can be supported by graphics, making this process easy to implement and comprehensible for the user. The manual generation of scenarios stands out due to its high flexibility and a low initial investment.
