- New physics based camera sensor model
The traditional RGB-based camera implementation created images limited to the visual spectrum. In contrast, the new PreScan spectral HDR camera model allows for high color depth, broad spectrum and physically correct image generation. The model simulates light in the 320-1500nm spectral range which traverses through the various media and lenses before the sensor model produces the final image signal. Other important features of this new spectral HDR camera model are a depth resolution of 20 bit per waveband as well as an increased dynamic range.
Lane Markers can now be added to Paths or to Road Segments. This makes it possible to add a repeated patterns of markers to a scenario at any location.
Fade and holes can now also be applied to Road Markings, Priority Lines and Line Placed Markers.
- Compilation Sheet Migration Dialog
For some PreScan blocks on the Compilation Sheet, the user can now choose whether the block is migrated (removing any user configuration) to the latest version of the PreScan block.
- Traffic Sign imperfection editor
Traffic signs can be configured to have dirt (e.g. snow, mud) or scratches. The opacity and the amount of coverage can be specified.
The GIDAS Importer is a plugin for the PreScan Experiment Editor. With the plugin it is possible to import cases out of the GIDAS based PCM® and it uses the information to build PreScan scenarios. The scenarios can then be used like any PreScan scenario, for example to study the effects of using an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) in such a scenario. For more information please see the documentation of the plugin.
The LaneMarkerSensor has been improved with regard to performance. The performance of multiple LaneMarkerSensors in one experiment has been improved significantly. The slices of the LaneMarkerSensor are configurable.
