Version 2019 Downloads

Date Posted
Version 2019 - This version contains several new enhancements and updates for HVE and HVE-2D users, including:


  • HVE 2019 includes two new tools for environment terrains created using point clouds:
    • Scissors - This tool allows you to cut out a section of an overly dense point cloud terrain and separate the "driving surface" from the remainder of the environment.
    • Decimation - This tool allows you to reduce and smooth the driving surface. This, in turn, allows you to greatly reduce the polygon count for the driving surface. It also removes the typical noise from the driving surface but keeps the curbs and potholes.
  • Another change allows EDSMAC4 to use the actual vehicle mesh in the calculation of collision force, instead of just using the simple rectangle based on vehicle exterior dimensions.

Read the accompanying Release Notes for a complete description of the changes.
