MORAI, the leading developer of full-stack autonomous driving simulation technology, announced today that it had advanced its autonomous driving simulation technologies to expand its application to various unmanned systems. The company will exhibit the latest technologies via its simulation platform MORAI SIM at CES 2023.
MORAI SIM helps users verify vehicles and systems by establishing a virtual environment, digitally simulating everything from complex physical conditions to weather and lighting changes. In the case of self-driving automobiles, MORAI SIM provides a simulation environment identical to reality and a virtual platform that includes sensors, vehicle models and scenarios to enable verification that ensures the reliability and safety of the self-driving systems. Scenario tests that cannot be conducted on the road, such as tests that evaluate the risk of a pedestrian collision, can be repeated many times on the virtual platform.
MORAI has now advanced its autonomous driving simulator solution for various uncrewed vehicles – including aircraft, robots, vessels, and ground vehicles – to verify their systems’ safety.
“Next-generation mobility innovations such as UAM, unmanned robots and vessels are rapidly progressing,” said Jiwon Jung, CEO of MORAI. “Simulation has been drawing attention as a breakthrough technology to promote mobility innovation as it can quickly, safely and cost-effectively verify the safety and functionality of autonomous driving systems. We plan to share MORAI’s innovative technologies and vision at CES 2023 and strengthen our partnership with global partners.”
For instance, MORAI SIM Robotics, designed for robotics applications, supports verifying Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) in a virtual environment. The solution offers modelling of different types of robots, such as walking robots and manipulators, in addition to wheel-type moving robots, and applies different dynamics to express realistic movements within the virtual simulator environment.
It also replicates the same settings in which AMR can be driven, from indoors, such as factories and buildings, to outdoor pedestrian roads. This application allows users to configure the environment and scenario as needed to verify their AMR.
MORAI also offers MORAI SIM AIR, the simulation solution for next-generation aviation mobility, such as Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and drones, to verify the systems’ safety in a virtual environment. Simulating various flight environments that can occur in real-life during UAM operations allows users to verify the safety of the aircraft and prevent dangerous situations in advance.
MORAI has enhanced the functionality of the traffic control system. MORAI SIM Traffic, a digital twin-based control system, supports precise traffic control by implementing the same traffic environment as reality in a virtual environment.
The system displays autonomous vehicles on the road and connected cars, pedestrians, and infrastructure information in real-time in the 3D environment allowing the overall traffic flow to be visualized and analyzed.
By reflecting the traffic volume information collected in real-time, it will be possible to investigate the effect of traffic flow on autonomous and connected vehicles. On the other hand, it will also be possible to verify and analyze how these vehicles impact the overall traffic flow.
MORAI is the first Korean company to have independently developed a full-stack self-driving simulation solution which includes the core simulation engine. The company supplies industry, research organizations, and universities with autonomous driving simulation solutions.
Its key customers include Hyundai Motor Company, Samsung Engineering, Naver Labs, Korea Automobile Testing & Research Institute, and Korea Automotive Technology Institute. In February, the company raised USD 23 million through a Series B funding round with investors such as Korea Investment Partners, KB Investment, and Korea Development Bank.
