LinkedIn +

VR software specialist Forum8 has announced that it will be showcasing the latest ADAS simulation technology at this year’s Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo, taking place in Novi, Michigan, on October 22, 23, 24, 2019.

Deployed by some of the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers and university departments, Forum8’s simulator technology is used in the design, development and testing of the next generation of autonomous vehicles, incorporating ADAS and the latest vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication platforms.

Based on its VR-Design Studio simulation software, users are able to seamlessly import point-cloud data and photo-logs to create interactive VR models of existing and proposed road networks that can be used for training, testing and research, under a range of realistic weather and road surface conditions.

Visitors to the Forum8 booth will have the opportunity to discuss the latest drive simulator technology. The company will also be demonstrating a range of advanced software and VR-Design Studio (UC-win/Road) plug-ins, including its unique 3D-B-Vision and Shade3D CAD software.

The booth will also be demonstrating VR-Cloud, a next generation, collaboration and consensus building cloud platform that enables engineers and global research teams to fully collaborate in real time, via the internet, just using their normal web browser on a PC.

Brendan Hafferty, western regional manager at Forum8, said, “Our drive simulation technology has evolved extensively over the past decade through working closely with the leading motor manufacturers and universities to provide many of the tools needed in the development of the next generation of autonomous vehicles. AVs have been a long time coming, but with manufacturers in a race to announce plans to launch new self-driving vehicles, our technology is increasingly in demand by the top research teams.”
