Autonomous vehicle simulation platform
Cognata provides a fast lane to autonomous driving with its testing and evaluation solution for self-driving vehicles - a realistic automotive simulation platform where virtual cars travel virtual roads in virtual cities, all in remarkably true to real-world conditions. Cognata’s simulated test-drive environment shaves years off the validation process by generating fast, highly accurate results, and eliminates the safety concerns, high costs, and limited scalability of road-testing in the physical world as well. Founded by a team of experts in deep learning, autonomous vehicles, and computer vision, Cognata reproduces the complex collection of sensors that power autonomous cars, including cameras, radar, and LiDAR, along with the mountain of data sensors generate in actual vehicles driving through actual city environments. At the same time, Cognata reproduces actual cities with the mile-by-mile detail of an exhilarating video game. Working from 3D models, Cognata simulates any city from any country in the world with true-to-life precision, from skyscrapers to shrubs, down to lane markings and traffic signs that mirror the real world. By adding other cars, pedestrians, and even historically accurate lighting and weather conditions to the mix, Cognata makes those real-world conditions come alive. Perhaps most importantly, Cognata’s dynamic traffic model adjusts for the differing realities of, say, Bangalore and the Autobahn. Without the geographic limitations of the physical world, Cognata’s technology allows car makers to simulate an accurate road test in any city, anywhere at all, providing them with a matchless advantage that can benefits care makers reaching global markets.
