A partnership with VectorZero will enable Silicon Valley-based Metamoto to add new features to its Simulation as a Service platform.
The recently announced partnership with VectorZero, which develops software, content and services for road and terrain generation for automotive simulation, enhances Metamoto’s simulation platform by enabling users to focus testing on the most critical situations, scenarios and edge-cases.
The new interoperability features allow users of VectorZero’s RoadRunner to export their virtual scenes (static environments that include roads, buildings, road signs, props, and so on) and scenarios (defined training and testing behaviors of traffic, pedestrians, sensor configurations, etc, within a scene) directly into Metamoto’s Simulation as a Service platform. The benefits to Metamoto’s customers include: custom virtual scene generation; automatic scene generation from HD Maps; virtual scene and scenario library; and faster virtual scene creation.
“VectorZero’s ability to generate intelligent roads and environments that are realistic, complex, flexible and customizable make us the perfect complement to Metamoto’s Simulation as a Service offering,” said Steve Rotenberg, CEO, VectorZero. “This collaboration will provide anyone with AV simulation needs a significant edge when testing their autonomous vehicle technologies.”
“Partnering with VectorZero enhances our Simulation as a Service offering and provides our customers with the tools needed to gain an edge in the race to autonomy,” said Chad Partridge, CEO, Metamoto. “The VectorZero team has developed a product that integrates seamlessly into our platform thanks in large part to their extensive background in the mobility space, which includes HERE Maps, PixelActive, and more. We look forward to finding new ways to deliver value to our customers through interoperability, product updates, and more, in the year ahead.”
