Easy to use and easy to adapt

With aiSim 5 comes a new level of accessibility and adaptability. Boasting open APIs for sensors, scenario & map management, and vehicle dynamics, along with a comprehensive SDK featuring example codes across multiple platforms, aiSim 5 seamlessly integrates with industry-standard toolchains, ensuring unprecedented interoperability. Experience user-friendly interaction through an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) and web deployment.

Deterministic environment and weather simulation

ADAS & AD functions heavily rely on sensors to perceive the environment. For this, it is essential to simulate the environment perception of the involved sensors correctly. aiSim 4's state-of-the-art technology that appropriately simulates the physical environment and weather effects. It can consistently provide a single source of truth for all the simulated types, which is crucial for  multi-sensor, neural network-based perception systems.

aiSim's proprietary, real-time rendering engine addresses all the requirements for a physically correct environment and weather simulation with complete determinism and repeatability. In aiSim 4, a broad range of weather conditions, including snowstorms, heavy rain, fog, and sunshine, can be simulated by leveraging state-of-the-art ray-tracing and rasterization technologies. In addition, multiple road parameters, including road painting deterioration and road degradation, can be easily configured to create even more diverse and challenging environments for perception stacks.
