Business Development Manager, ESTECO
Alexandre Mugnai performed engineering studies at Politecnico di Torino, Italy. He joined TNO in 1997 as support engineer for MADYMO (passive safety) and grew into passive safety engineering / program management, and later opened the TNO office in Paris, France to manage south European business. From 2009 to 2012 he was responsible for European sales activities in Europe for TASS International. He joined ESTECO in 2016 to be responsible for European sales activities for modeFRONTIER desktop application and VOLTA enterprise solution, with a special focus towards the automotive industry in the area of passive safety – active safety (ADAS and Autonomous Driving) – vehicle dynamics.
Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) systems are being widely introduced by all automotive companies to reduce the number of accidents and casualties. Having to meet strict requirements for a wide range of traffic scenarios, disturbances, and faults, the costs for testing and evaluation of an automotive control system are increasing and may take up to 50% of the total development costs. Therefore, it is mandatory to develop accurate numerical simulations of ADAS control systems, integrated with sensors and actuators, vehicle dynamics, inter-vehicle behavior and microscopic traffic environment. The presentation will focus on how to integrate VI-Grade and modeFRONTIER software for the reliability analysis of a ADAS system, in order to prove how fault tolerance can be identified and optimized for any combination of the control system and traffic scenario.
