The evaluation of optical systems determines how the product is perceived and even whether or not it can be used in the intended manner.
Optical simulation with ANSYS across the entire product lifecycle
With the ANSYS optics product portfolio, you can implement light guide optimization for different applications or visual testing of the interactions of systems over the entire product lifecycle. Whether for design, engineering, validation or visual presentation (rendering), each representation is strictly physics based and therefore highly realistic.
Highlights at a glance
- Physics-based, realistic results
- Flexible CAD integration (PTC CREO, Siemens NX …)
- Extensive material libraries
- SpaceClaim-based version available

Software products for optical simulation with ANSYS
Here you will find our products for physics-based validation and optimization of optical systems.
Predictive prototyping for optimized optical design
ANSYS SPEOS is a high-precision simulation tool for optical systems based on human visual perception. Integrated into virtual product development, ANSYS SPEOS can realistically simulate the real-life individual user experience for improved and even more precise optimization of the end product design.
- Lighting system modeler (ray tracer)
- Production tolerance simulation
- Optical design optimizer
- Lighting system visualizer
- Pre-defined light sources (ray files)
Added Value of ANSYS SPEOS from the company perspective
Interactive real-time simulator for maximum realism
ANSYS VRXPERIENCE allows you to not only experience a journey as virtual reality but also validate virtual product configurations. Based on the most advanced software, physical simulations can thus be created for simple and rapid testing of different conditions – right at an early stage of development.
- Virtual driving simulator
- Real-time sensor simulation
- LiDAR, camera and radar system simulation
- Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)
- Human-machine interface (HMI)
