Simulation software company rFpro has created a digital twin of Mcity, the University of Michigan’s autonomous vehicle testing facility.
The digital twin enables manufacturers and technology suppliers to speed up development using simulations. It contains different roadside objects and materials to ensure accurate simulation of radar, lidar and camera sensors. rFpro used survey grade lidar equipment to capture a digital copy of the environment accurate to less than 1mm.
Mcity is a 32-acre site at the University of Michigan and has more than 16-acres of road and traffic infrastructure. It simulates a broad range of complexities vehicles may encounter in urban and suburban environments.
