Challenge

The deployment of complex ADAS and AD software can pose significant challenges for leading automakers, who need to cost-effectively and scalably develop and validate these systems. Real-world testing and data collection can be expensive and unsafe.
Siloed processes and disparate workflows
Delayed development timelines
Safety risks in production software

Applied Intuition’s approach

Applied Intuition’s development platform allows engineering teams to safely develop and test ADAS and AD systems at scale. The unified toolchain spans across the entire development cycle, from simulation to data exploration and validation. It uses machine learning (ML) techniques to support increasingly realistic and complex use cases.
Deterministic and highly scalable simulations
Constantly evolving ML-based components
Unified workflows for faster, safer ADAS and AD development

The ADAS and AD development cycle

Collect and generate data

Obtain drive logs through real-world testing. Automatically search and identify relevant real-world drive logs for re-simulation, training, or evaluation with our auto-curation models. Generate synthetic data designed to improve autonomy systems for cases where real-world data collection is expensive, difficult, or dangerous.

Create scenarios

Create synthetic scenarios for perception, prediction, planning, and controls simulation. Our sensor and object-level simulators are deterministic and realistic, easy to use, and able to integrate with all systems under test. Complement synthetic scenarios with re-simulations of real-world drive logs. Use generative techniques to create complex scenarios that are difficult to build by hand.

Run simulations

Intelligently select and run thousands of simulations in parallel, either on-premise or in the cloud. Perform automatic progression and regression tests before every code change is merged. Simulate autonomous vehicle performance with accurate, detailed, and efficient vehicle dynamics models.

Analyze and validate

Visualize test results in user-friendly dashboards. Assess system performance and track coverage for an operational design domain (ODD). Ensure functional, system, and regulatory requirements are met before integrating software modules into the overall vehicle architecture.
