Gaming as well augmented reality firm, Unity Technologies, has now revealed the launch of the real-time simulation platform that can create visual environments for the developers to test the autonomous vehicles.
The America based company revealed that is also working on developing a platform for developing a broad range of applications in the field of the real-time 3D scenario and VR, AR for the automobile industry.
Unity Technologies said that the company was also enabling the eight of the 10 largest original equipment manufacturers across the globe by helping them improve the way they design, build, and service and even sell the automobiles and even cut down the costs in terms of the design and sales.
The company which is founded in the year 2004 in Copenhagen, is known for its product called the Unity, a licensed real-time 2D, 3D, VR and AR development engine, which has also been extensively used by the developers in the VR, AR domains, mainly for the gaming industry. Its platform is also nowadays being to use in some other industries.
The company said that it’s strengthening the OEM’s in the automotive industry with its flexibility and support for more than 25 platforms it had developed as of now. According to the firm, its platform is helping the OEM’s to execute the designing, training, marketing, autonomous driving, and human-machine interaction while thus also saving an average of $4 million for each model designed with the help of its solutions.
“We are enthralled to be a part of the real-time revolution of the automotive sector by equipping the automakers through our real-time rendering technology,” said Anumukonda Ramesh, country manager for India at Unity Technologies. “The ability to design, market, train and accurately conduct autonomous testing in a simulated environment allows for millions of simulations to simultaneously occur, providing automakers with a competitive advantage while helping to keep their business costs down,” he added.
The firm also said that its AI and machine learning capabilities and simulation engine also allow the OEM’s to drive the millions of miles in a virtual environment, thus running 10000s of scenarios at a time, all without even any of the endangering lives.
