Korean full-stack autonomous driving simulation technology developer Morai has signed an MOU with autonomous driving solutions specialist dSpace Korea to work together in developing co-simulation solutions.
Morai designs, develops and distributes a core engine, which autonomous driving simulators require, to some 100 clients, which include Hyundai Mobis, Naver Labs, and Samsung Engineering. With financial backing by some of Korea’s largest companies, such as Naver, Hyundai Motor Company, Kakao Ventures, and Atinum Investment, Morai successfully completed a series A funding round earlier this year.
One of the company’s key technologies is the automated generation of digital twins using HD map data, which allows for the building of large simulation environments. In addition to developing simulation technologies, Morai notes it has continuously focused on building interfaces to connect with different simulation platforms. The new partnership will see it collaborate with dSpace in developing co-simulation solutions that will create a toolchain drawing on the strengths of both companies.
Morai CEO Jiwon Jung stated, “Co-simulation can create powerful simulation platforms that integrate the strengths of different solutions. Advances in autonomous driving technology are accelerating, and we are working to match this pace of development so we can contribute to safely commercializing autonomous driving technology.”
