Simulator for Self-driving
：Radar・Sensor Simulation Framework
OTSL Inc. announced Millimeter Radar simulator and LIDAR (Laser Imaging Detection And Ranging) simulator for Automotive sensor simulations, and also can provide 3DCG MAP for specific radar which has millimeter accuracy. Now we can only provide AMMWR and ALR to the following COSMOsim Framework.
Note: * is under development
1. AMMWR : Advanced Millimeter Wave Radar simulator
・Real-Time simulation using 3DCG MAP
・Radar Map display (Power, Distance, Velocity)
・Various Detection Algorithm (MUSIC, ESPRIT…)
・Easy to use
Radar Simulation with millimeter precision 3DCG MAP
Radar (Millimeter wave radar and LIDAR) uses a wavelength different from that of visible light, on the other words, we need specific 3DCGMAP different from the Google Map, common CG MAP. In general, LIDAR accuracy is a few cm for automotive, a few mm for construction, so we adopted mm order accuracy 3DCG MAP which is called “High Precision 3DCG MAP”. And more this “High Precision 3DCG MAP” has each specific parameter which is each reflectivity for wavelength, and it enable to achieve High Precision Radar simulation.

We received the following comments regarding our simulator from Prof. Matsuzawa in Tokyo Institute of technology.
In order to realize autonomous driving, millimeter wave radars, laser radars, image sensors and ultrasonic sensors are indispensable. It is required to confirm that the developed sensors can operate properly under various situations. Ultimately, field testing is necessary. But in the development of devices and systems, the real-time simulator is indispensable for improving the efficiency of development. This real-time radar simulator uses Ray-tracing method that has been used in optical field and applies it to the millimeter waves. It takes into consideration the substance and shape of the subject, and multiple reflections. It realizes a precise simulation being closer to reality.
About Prof. Matsuzawa: Akira Matsuzawa received B.S., M.S., and Ph. D. degrees in electronics engineering from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, in 1976, 1978, and 1997 respectively. In 1978, he joined Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd (Panasonic). Since then, he has been working on research and development of analog and Mixed Signal integrated circuit design. From 1997 to 2003, he was a general manager in advanced LSI technology development center. On April 2003, he joined Tokyo Institute of Technology as full professor and now he is full professor, chair of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and director for Center for Teaching and learning. He is currently researching in mixed signal technologies and RF CMOS integrated circuit design. He is an IEEE Fellow since 2002.
