Michael Schlenkrich

Senior Director Product Management MSC Software GmbH

Dr. Michael Schlenkrich studied Theoretical Physics and Chemistry at the Technical University of Darmstadt. He joint Silicon Graphics (SGI), leading multiple technology projects. In 1999, he initiated the creation of a Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM) Solution at BMW AG, Audi AG, and VW (referred to as CAE-Bench). In 2001, he joint MSC.Software as product management for the SPDM solution (SimManager) and later led the global services team delivering the SPDM solutions. Since 2018, Michael Schlenkrich is a product manager and product strategist at MSC for Cloud Strategy and Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML). In this function, Michael Schlenkrich has initiated a VTD SCALE as a solution for testing and validation of AV and ADAS functions.

Second Conference Day

10:10 AM Smart Testing of an Autonomous System

Simulating environments and subsystems for the development and validation of ADAS and AD
systems is a challenging task which scales exponentially with the realism and fidelity of the
individual simulated components. This presentation will highlight the means to start on a massive scale with a scanning of the event space by minimizing the risks and maximizing the autonomous vehicle development efficiency. It will point out how to narrow in on „interesting“ edge cases that justify the use of highly realistic and detailed models that consume considerable time and computational resources. In the virtual world, the edge case detection is done by analyzing the millions of scenarios with thousands of parallel processes for billions of miles, faster than real-time simulation enabling the increased speed to deployable systems.
