Using the TrueFreeForm surface for grid-based freeform optimization

Using the TrueFreeForm surface for grid-based freeform optimization

The TrueFreeForm surface is a sequential surface type in OpticStudio which uses a superposed combination of polynomial and grid-based sag characterizations. In addition, the TrueFreeForm surface also supports optimization of the sag values at each data point in the grid sag data file, allowing for a unique, non-parameterized optimization methodology. This can be advantageous in cases where spatially-selective optimization is desired, or a given polynomial function cannot well represent the desired sag structure.

Zemax and Ansys Collaborate to Enable Safer, Reliable Autonomous Vehicle Navigation

Zemax and Ansys Collaborate to Enable Safer, Reliable Autonomous Vehicle Navigation

Optical sensors – including LiDAR, radar, visible and IR cameras – play a key role in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and are critical to pushing autonomous vehicles (AV) robustly and safely towards full level 5 autonomy.  Engineers responsible for designing these sensors need to ensure that they will operate in various environments that an AV will be subject to; to do so, engineers need to be able to quickly and accurately test, validate and iterate their optical designs.
