Create dedicated test scenarios to exercise new functionality while avoiding testing delays in the field. Leverage exact control over sensors, 3D worlds, and environmental conditions.
Test edge cases that are difficult or dangerous to test in the real world. Compute metrics to quantify performance, and automatically execute scenarios on each commit to prevent regressions.
Prototype new sensors in simulation to test their impact on perception performance. Vary sensor intrinsics and extrinsics automatically in simulation to discover optimal configurations.
