New Features in LucidDrive Version 2017.12

AFS Masking PixelLight

Pixel light is a type of adaptive front-lighting system (AFS) that provides individual light cell illumination on the road with high resolution. The Masking PixelLight feature detects oncoming and overtaking traffic, calculates its bounding boxes and masks user-definable regions of the provided light distributions to prevent glare.

 

Real-Time Performance Enhancements

To improve the performance for LucidDrive real-time applications:

  • Vehicle models for right-hand traffic have undergone an effective streamlining process to reduce their consumption of calculation power.

  • The vehicle detection mechanism has been enhanced to achieve a higher performance in detecting other traffic participants for AFS and adaptive driving beam (ADB) system simulations.

 

Enhanced Memory Management: Automatic Light Distribution Cropping Feature 

For some applications, such as Matrix Beam, a large number of individual light distributions is needed. Most of the candela space of these light distributions is empty. This release provides an automatic cropping feature that can crop the candela space with a "lasso" feature to reduce the size of the LID as it is loaded. This can increase the number and speed of light distributions that can be visualized concurrently. This cropping is based on a user-definable intensity value and can be switched off.

For additional information about this product, including new features and bugs fixed in version 2017.12, see the LucidDrive 2017.12 Release Notes on our Customer Support Portal.
