Optis’ new light simulation software is geared to the automotive industry
Optis has released SPEOS 2018, the latest version of its core light simulation software. In this iteration, SPEOS, which provides light simulation based on the physical laws of optics, contains new features intended to benefit the automotive industry, such as headlight simulation and the simulation of internal materials. Companies using SPEOS, in addition to Optis’ suite of simulation and virtual reality (VR) software, eliminate the need for physical prototypes to test their products, reducing the waste of materials and speeding time-to-market, according to Optis.
The latest version of SPEOS 2018 consists of a mode intended to push the limits of the visible distance and width of headlight beams while maintaining regulatory compliance. The software has also been updated with in-depth CAD integration, allowing users to invent innovative optomechanical technologies. It also holds a library of digital light processing (DLP) tools that are dedicated to HUD in automotive.
Optis says that SPEOS 2018 allows users to save 30% of the time spent on data exchanges between departments and between OEMs and their suppliers.
“For designers, engineers, OEMs, suppliers, and beyond, we created SPEOS 2018 to make all levels of the process easier, more efficient, and more easily communicated. SPEOS 2018 not only speeds time-to-market by eliminating the need for physical prototypes, but also by reducing friction in communication,” said Jacques Delacour, founder and CEO of Optis.
