With New Partnerships, OTSL Builds out 3D Real-Time Sensor Simulator Framework for Self-Driving Cars
OTSL Inc. , a developer of short-distance wireless and embedded systems based in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, announced partnerships with autonomous three autonomous driving, or self-driving, technology companies ahead of the 2019 Automated Vehicles Symposium in Orlando, Florida. The partnerships – with Germany's COSEDA Technologies GmbH , United States-based VectorZero, Inc. , and Finland's AILiveSim – involve OTSL’s COSMOsim 3D real-time automated driving sensor simulator framework.
COSMOsim is currently the only platform that can simultaneously run five types of simulators -- millimeter wave radar, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), cameras, infrared light, and ultrasonic wave sensors -- in real time on a single screen. With COSMOsim, OTSL is looking to better virtually recreate diverse driving conditions to enable safe and accurate verifications at a point when autonomous driving continues to move toward practical use around the world.
