Hexagon Accelerates Its Simulation Portfolio With Acquisition Of VIRES
Hexagon, a provider of information technology solutions, announced the acquisition of VIRES, a German-based, provider of simulation software solutions that support the development, testing and validation of driver-assisted and fully autonomous driving technology.
VIRES's simulation solutions have been recognised for their robustness, performance and ease of building simulation environments for over 20 years. Their worldwide customer list spans prominent automotive OEMs and suppliers as well as recent entrants to the automotive market to companies in the railway and aerospace industries and elite universities involved in shaping the future of mobility.
"The VIRES acquisition strengthens our CAE (simulation) platform with an industry-proven solution", says Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. "It also supports our overall autonomous X vision "“ to deliver a software-driven, intelligent ecosystem that leverages our expertise in 3D mapping and other essential sensor technologies to make safe, autonomous vehicles a reality."
The company's core product, VIRES Virtual Test Drive (VTD), supports a wide range of additional tools and services. As a main contributor to the industrial consortia behind interoperability standards, VIRES is a driving force in automotive simulator technology.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
