The urban roads were Laser Scanned (LiDAR), with 360deg photography and video. The completed model is shipped with road networks for SUMO (Traffic) and Road5 (IPG CarMaker) as the first customers are making use of the model for ADAS and Autonomous testing, with camera, Radar, LiDAR and Ultrasound sensors as well as for training of Deep Learning AI Driver models.
Correlation between the digital model and the real streets is very high, ensuring that virtual tests perform similarly to real car tests. The route includes a variety of roads, road surfaces, junctions and pedestrian crossings. Physically based materials have been used to ensure accurate behaviour in simulation at all times of day.
