Metamoto Simulation

Virtual environments offer significant advantages for autonomous vehicle development and will be the arena where a majority of testing and validation occur. Complex simulations deliver results faster than real-time testing, with easily repeatable test cases and safe replication of hazardous scenarios. To drive even 20 percent better than a human requires 11 billion miles of validation. That translates to more than 500 years of nonstop driving in the real world with a fleet of 100 cars — an impossible task.

Metamoto connects developers with those advantages through its cloud-based simulation platform, which can be tailored for a wide variety of research and development objectives.

Metamoto’s services include designer scenario creation with multi-sensor simulations across a broad spectrum of environmental parameters, as well as a direction of tests and results analysis. Synthetic annotated sensor data created from test scenarios also can be used to train perception and planning machine learning algorithms.
