Cognata and Xylon Group to Demonstrate Cost-Effective Real-Time Photorealistic HIL Solution to Accelerate $1.3 Billion ADAS and AV HIL Market


REHOVOT, Israel, October 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — brandy Ltd today announces the launch of a new collaboration with xylonto provide a complete Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicle (AV) Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) solution.

Xylon’s logiRECORDER Automotive HIL all-in-one video recorder will use Cognata’s real-time photorealistic simulation platform to provide a cost-effective solution for ADAS and AV validation and verification testing.

Cognata provides its HIL real-time photorealistic sensor simulation – hardware-in-the-loop platform. The platform offers 3D digital twin environments with real traffic agents as moving and interactive objects. The simulation connects directly to Xylon’s logiRECORDER, removing the hassle of complex hardware boxes and improving signal quality over previous generations.

Xylon’s logiRECORDER improves and accelerates the design and testing of state-of-the-art autonomous driving (AD) and ADAS systems with an all-in-one automotive data recorder for recording raw multi-channel video and network data, analysis data and playback of recorded data. data in HIL simulations.

In HIL mode of operation, the logiRECORDER enables real-time conversions of synthetic data from multiple and heterogeneous vehicle sensors modeled in Cognata’s simulation platform, including video cameras, LIDARs, RADARs, cameras thermals, etc., into physical automotive sensory inputs to electronic hardware Control Units (ECU). In closed-loop HIL, the physical outputs of the ECU can be converted into simulation inputs that interactively influence the simulated scenarios.

“We are bringing our industry-leading simulation platform to the hardware validation space by introducing new capabilities for OEMs/T1s to test their final hardware designs in rapid iteration and a new level of quality,” says Danny AtmonCEO and Founder of Cognata.

“Our compact and highly configurable hardware platform quickly adapts to new high-bandwidth vehicle sensors. In synergy with Cognata’s simulation platform, enables a flexible and truly immersive HIL, with generally expected system performance at a much higher price,” says Davor KovacecCEO and Founder of Xylon.

Technologies such as advanced driver assistance systems, autonomous driving, and collision avoidance systems are being adopted in automobiles to improve driving safety and comfort. HIL tests are performed for ECUs, algorithms and software used in autonomous technology. Camera, RADAR, LiDAR and other sensors are also tested to validate sensor data using hardware in the loop test beds. Buckle Market Hardware is Expected to Grow from $817 million in 2022 at $1,291 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 9.6%.

Key market growth drivers include technological advancements in electric and autonomous vehicles, faster product development with early stages of testing using loop-through hardware, and growing demand in developing countries.*
