Its aim is to accelerate autonomous vehicle deployment for companies across the mobility ecosystem
Silicon Valley start-up Metamoto is launching its Simulation-as-a-Service offering in August, which enables companies working on autonomous technology to validate automated vehicle (AV) software safely in the virtual world before they hit public roads.
It is demonstrating the technology at the Automated Vehicles Symposium in San Francisco, CA, taking place from July 9-12.
Metamoto’s offering comprises three components:
“Simulation offers an immediate means to train and test the performance of automated systems in a risk-free environment, allowing automakers to accelerate to their autonomous vehicle production timelines,” said Chad Partridge, CEO, Metamoto. “Metamoto’s offering is designed to give every player in the mobility space – not just the largest, ‘top dogs’ – a tool to test their automated vehicle in a virtual world ensuring safe deployment in the real world.”
Key features of the service offering include:
This announcement follows Metamoto’s successful early engagement programme, which includes participating OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers, transportation network companies (TNCs) and stack, sensor and other technology providers. Metamoto also recently commenced its Series A fundraising having previously concluded a successful $2m seed round fundraise in July 2017.
