Real-world Testing for Autonomous Vehicles
The autonomous driving industry is facing multiple technology disruptions. In cars with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), decision-making units must process massive amounts of data from an increased number of sensors, in turn driving greater complexity in development, simulation and testing. Keysight is working to tackle these challenges to overcome in creating completely autonomous vehicles that work in the real world. Keysight’s Autonomous Drive Emulation platform is the environment emulator for in-lab testing using realistic roadway scenarios, from mundane to one-in-a-million. Using total scene generation, the platform exercises ADAS software using time-synchronized inputs to the actual sensors.
Generate Total Roadway Scenes with Multi-Faceted Environment Emulation
Keysight’s Autonomous Drive Emulation (ADE) platform is the environment emulator for in-lab autonomous driving testing versus realistic roadway scenarios, from mundane to one-in-a-million. Using total scene generation, the platform exercises ADAS software using time-synchronized inputs to the actual sensors.

Build Confidence in ADAS with Keysight’s Autonomous Drive Emulation
In the development of autonomous vehicles, confidence in the safety of ADAS is built on detailed testing. This requires hundreds of millions of miles of road testing—actual or simulated—focused on exploring corner cases and qualifying new designs.
Keysight’s ADE platform accelerates that process using detailed simulations and time-synchronized testing of sensors, wireless links, ECUs, and AI algorithms. With state-of-the-art realism, the ADE platform enables developers to thoroughly test their designs and then focus on the debugging and fine-tuning of system behavior.
Watch the introductory video to see how ADE can help realize your vision of mobility.
Bring the Road to the Lab with the ADE Platform
Consider the many decisions we make while driving a car, and how long it took to become a good driver. That’s the challenge: building complex systems that exceed the abilities of the best human drivers. As automakers race to achieve a level 4 or 5 autonomous vehicle features of ADAS functionality move beyond parking assistance or automated breaking. The algorithms that make those decisions must ‘learn’ about more corner cases, more roadways, more city centers than ever before. With an unproven system, premature roadway testing is too risky. The best alternative is a solution that fills the gap between software simulation and on-road testing. It must emulate real-world scenarios that enable validation of actual sensors, ECU code, AI logic, and more. Testing more scenarios, sooner, provides a clearer sense of when to stop, and when to confidently sign off.
- Enhance testing of cameras and radar with highly realistic views of modeled objects
- Leverage state-of-the-art radar target simulation capabilities
- Incorporate application-level testing of cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) scenarios
Sign-Off on New Functionality with Well-Founded Confidence
The ADE platform is an “environment emulator” that uses “total scene generation” to provide direct stimulation of the actual ADAS sensors that will be used in vehicles. Capabilities that address both line-of-sight- and communication-based systems including camera, radar, or C-V2X. Its open architecture also closes the loop with your existing hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems and 3D modelers. These capabilities create a solution that complements—and fills the gap between—software simulation and on-road testing.
- Close the gap between software simulations and on-the-road testing of ADAS capabilities
- Gain deeper insights into ADAS software behavior earlier in the development circle
- Ensure consistent testing of features and updates that are released post-SOP
- Protect your investments in HiL systems and 3D modelers with the open ADE architecture
- Grow your Autonomous Drive Emulation solution as sensor systems and test requirements evolve
