There are a lot of differences of opinion in the autonomous vehicle space, but one thing everyone can agree on:
Virtual training and validation of AV/ADAS systems and components are a key factor in achieving the massive scale of testing which is necessary.
To this end, we at atlatec are always working to support more simulation tools, allowing our customers to continue working with their toolchain of choice when leveraging our HD maps.
Today, we are happy to announce the newest addition to our list of supported simulation software: Cognata.
Cognata is a cloud-based simulation platform designed specifically for autonomous driving and ADAS applications and is used for AV training, validation and analysis. It offers several datasets to test AV components against, such as traffic lights, signs, pedestrians and vehicles.
By importing atlatec HD maps, Cognata customers will have the added benefit of training and testing on road environments that are highly accurate digital twins of real-world routes, ensuring a more robust system performance and similar results to a real drive-test. The maps are supplied in the OPENdrive format.
