PreScan is a physics-based simulation platform used in the automotive industry for development of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that are based on sensor technologies such as radar, laser/LiDAR, camera, and GPS. PreScan is also used for designing and evaluating vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication applications. PreScan can be used from model-based controller design (MIL) to real-time tests with software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems.
PreScan provides a preprocessor to define scenarios and a run-time environment to execute them. The engineer's prime interface for making and testing algorithms includes MATLAB® and Simulink®. A COM-based interface allows PreScan to communicate with MATLAB and Simulink during simulations.
