Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT), a provider of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) testing solutions, has has announced the release of SimHIL, an integrated hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing software API for Spirent GNSS simulators, the company said.
Spirent´s SimHIL software has been developed to meet the automotive industry´s growing need for realistic positioning, navigation and timing testing for sensor fusion. As customers apply increasing pressure on car manufacturers for more advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) features and advanced infotainment systems, test labs need to be able to combine Wi-Fi, camera, lidar, radar, inertial and GNSS data that power these advanced automotive systems.
SimHIL helps test engineers bring accurate, controlled and coherent data from GNSS and inertial sensors to their sensor fusion algorithms within HIL test environments. Facilitating the ultra-low latency, complete control, enhanced realism, and ease of use and setup of Spirent GSS7000 and GSS9000 GNSS simulators, SimHIL is an ideal solution for OEMs and tier-one suppliers developing ADAS, V2X and sensor fusion engines.
