Woven Planet Group has partnered with Applied to test its self-driving system end-to-end under a vast number of scenarios quickly, safely, and comprehensively.
Synthetically created expressway for perception system testing
Automotive-grade simulation engine: Applied’s software is used in Woven Planet Group’s extensive testing process and informs Woven Planet Group’s development decisions.
End-to-end system testing: Applied’s simulation tools enable end-to-end verification of complex systems including the perception module. Continuous integration (CI) environments of such systems are also created.
Seamless integration: Integration was customized to meet Woven Planet Group’s requirements (e.g., support for vehicle dynamics model integration).
Large-scale simulations in the cloud: An environment to test large-scale scenarios in the cloud in a parallel state was established.
Evaluation under a wide range of edge cases: Synthetic data enables the scalable generation and verification of situations by changing parameters such as weather, fog, time of day, and visibility.
Testing the perception module using synthetic data: Sensors such as Toyota’s proprietary cameras are modeled accurately; virtual 3D environments specific to Woven Planet Group’s operational design domains (ODDs) are generated procedurally to test Woven Planet Group’s perception stack without driving on roads.
