Using simulation to drive Toyota’s automated driving system development process
Toyota Research Institute-Advanced Development, Inc. (TRI-AD) develops innovative software that will enable a vision of Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota), “Mobility for All.” TRI-AD's mission is to create new technology and advanced safety systems for the world and oversee Toyota’s newly announced Woven City, which will serve as an incubator for smart city design, connected mobility, and robotics technology from Toyota and its partners.
"Applied Intuition works hand in hand with our engineering teams to integrate their tools with our quite complex codebase.
The depth of their knowledge coupled with their agility and the rich feature set of their products help move our project quickly and successfully. Applied's responsiveness to our needs have helped us to accelerate."
VP of Software Platform, TRI-AD
TRI-AD is at the forefront of automated driving vehicle development, incorporating the latest trends and technology into their development process. They focus on developing algorithms that aim to deliver the world’s most secure, comfortable, and above all, the safest mobility experience.
To accelerate the deployment of automated driving experience in Toyota’s models, the team is focusing on the following key areas.
"End-to-end validation of a vast array of real-world scenarios is critical to ensure the safety of our customers.
Our automated driving software is increasingly more complex and we need powerful and scalable simulation environments to efficiently and comprehensively verify the system.
Applied Intuition has provided us with an easy-to-use tool and we will continue to rely on them to speed up our development cycle."
