WIXOM, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--dSPACE, one of the world’s leading providers of simulation and validation solutions, announced that it is supporting the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC) as the event’s Exclusive On-Vehicle Computer Technology Sponsor. The IAC organizes racing competitions among university affiliated teams from around the world to program fully autonomous racecars and compete in a series of history-making events at iconic tracks. dSPACE is providing the AUTERA AutoBox in-vehicle prototyping and data recording system that acts as the central computer in all vehicles, enabling fully autonomous operation of the cars on the racetrack.

The goal of the IAC is to bring together universities and technology thought leaders in the field of autonomous driving to support the next generation of engineers who will develop innovative solutions for high-performance autonomous vehicles that can handle edge-case scenarios in tough, real-world environments.

With the AUTERA AutoBox, dSPACE provides the robust, high-performance central computer that reads and processes sensor data from lidar, radar, and cameras, as well as from automotive buses and networks. The special feature of the AUTERA hardware is its unique combination of high computation power and a best-in-class data bandwidth (50 Gbit/s) in a compact form factor.

"dSPACE is proud to provide the ?brain’ of the IAC racecars with AUTERA and looks forward to seeing how the solution proves itself in the very demanding racing environment. At the same time, it is exciting to experience how the student teams perform in this unique development lab in digital engineering, everyday testing, and in the races," says Peter Waeltermann, President of dSPACE Inc.

“A partner like dSPACE, with its extensive experience in the development of autonomous vehicles, is a tremendous asset for the IAC,” said Paul Mitchell, President, Indy Autonomous Challenge “The dSPACE technology is a critical piece to the puzzle that allows our university teams to test the limits of high-speed autonomous driving.”

The next competition will be the Indy Autonomous Challenge Powered by Cisco at the Texas Motor Speedway on November 11. The Autonomous Challenge @ CES will follow on January 7, 2023, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway as part of CES 2023, the world’s most influential technology event. You can find dSPACE in CES booth #4417, and at the IAC in booth #3601.

dSPACE is supporting the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC) as the event’s Exclusive On-Vehicle Computer Technology Sponsor and provides its AUTERA AutoBox solution for in-vehicle prototyping and data recording.
