Light Simulation

Lighting conditions affect product performance, human comfort and perception – so modeling light propagation and its impact is crucial. ANSYS optical simulation software uniquely simulates a system’s optical performance and evaluates the final illumination effect. This unparalleled virtual product development helps you to improve your optical product’s performance, while simultaneously reducing development time and costs.


Solve complex optical problems

ANSYS’ physics-based imaging, photonics and illumination software streamlines the design process, so you can better understand how your product will look and operate. Simulation lets you assess your product virtually to see how it will appear in real-world lighting and usage conditions. For example, you can virtually assess the performance of a smart automotive headlight in dynamic driving conditions using optical simulations instead of wasting time building and testing costly physical prototypes. Whether you are designing a TV screen, a street lighting network, a smart headlight, a head-up display or the interior mood lighting in an automobile, ANSYS optical simulation software helps you make your design more efficient and appealing.


Visual appearance for perceived quality

When customers evaluate your products, the overall look and details can make the difference. ANSYS optical software lets you simulate light interactions with materials so you can see how your product will appear in real-world conditions. Create the best “visual signature” for your product using simulation to see “eye to eye” with your customers.


Optical sensors for autonomous vehicles

Optical sensors are the eyes of any intelligent system. ANSYS physics-based simulations can help you assess raw signals from camera and lidar systems in their operating environments. You can post-process the simulated data to optimize sensor layout on vehicles in dynamic driving conditions.
