MODELIZED PROPRIETARY SENSORS

Different types of systems

4DV-SIMULATOR use representative models of robotic systems : vehicles, robots, drones, robotic arms.
The dynamic behaviour of these systems respect the constraints of their real counterparts. For example the obstacle-clearing capability, the stability, the wheel/ground contacts, the wind disturbance with the drones, the collision management, etc.

The systems we can emulate :

  • Wheeled vehicles
  • Vehicles with 1 or more driving wheels
  • Vehicles with multiples motorized wheels
  • Vehicles on rails
  • Tracked vehicles
  • UAVs
  • Engines with turret
  • Machinery for construction
  • Bucket truck
  • Forklift
  • Hitched systems
  • Polyarticulated robotic arm

An open simulation

4DV-SIMULATOR is made to connect with your hardware (pilot systems, acquisition cards, calculator, work station, automaton,etc). This H.I.L (Hardware In the Loop) interface provide an efficient integration for perception applications, control, the development of embedded A.I and the configuration of communication systems.

After a validation of your application behaviour using simulation, you utilize directly the results of your developments for the tuning of the real experiments.

4DV-SIMULATOR is a platform opened to co-simulation with other modelisation and simulation tools. You can define in 4DV-EDITOR the method of communication and the data exchanged to customize your development and testing architecture.

Principle of

realistic simulation

The simulation experts from 4D-Virtualiz are working to propose optimized and realistic tools to maximize the simulation capacity in terms of agents and systems. Therefore you have the ability to make numeraical twins including a set-up with multiple sensors.

The 4DV-SIMULATOR technology is made of several computation engines (visual rendering, physics computation, agents management, etc).

All those elements interact consistently thanks to a specific patented simulation engine, ensuring a functional 3D real-time simulation.

4DV-SIM adapts to your simulation requirements with a scalable hardware architecture (additional calculators, cards) and software structure.
