AImotive Integrates RoadRunner 3D Scene Editing Capability by MathWorks into aiSim

MathWorks and AImotive have begun a collaboration to integrate RoadRunner into aiSim allowing users to create road and 3D networks for simulation in aiSim

AImotive has integrated RoadRunner, which is an interactive editor from MathWorks that lets users design 3D scenes for simulations, into aiSim, the world’s first ISO26262 certified automotive grade simulation platform, according to the company, to solve this challenge.

The result of the collaboration provides a user-friendly way to create various environments using RoadRunner’s intuitive map editor, ranging from dense urban scenes to compliance specific test cases. 

In addition, the integration allows users to create and edit OpenDrive maps and import GIS data and place the built-in high-fidelity assets of aiSim mixed with RoadRunner’s asset library. The created content can be imported to the ASIL-D certified simulator, exercising its sensor simulation capabilities.

"Automated driving engineers use virtual testing to reduce the cost and risk of in-vehicle testing. To achieve the most benefit from virtual testing, engineers need to simulate scenes that closely match the real-world, which are time consuming to create” said Avinash Nehemiah, Principal Product Manager - Autonomous Systems at MathWorks. "With the connectivity between RoadRunner and aiSim engineers can easily author complex, simulation-ready scenes in RoadRunner for virtual testing in aiSim".
