Session 1: The aDRIVE Simulation Framework: Automated Driving Refined in Virtual Environments.
Clearly simulation is necessary in addition to real-world testing in order to thoroughly validate vehicle features at higher levels of autonomy.
In this session, you will learn
- How leading automaker Ford prototyped a flexible simulation workflow using of open source gaming engine technology
- How this work complements existing modeling workflows within Ford
- How the system helps to train and test next generation algorithms
