AI scenario engine for training and testing autonomous vehicles at scale

The physical world is complex and highly dynamic, with sudden changes and unforeseen anomalies. Therefore, it is essential to establish a systematic way to prepare autonomous systems for safe operation in the physical world. In this presentation, we give insights into our novel AI Scenario Engine that helps customers deploy autonomous systems significantly faster and with less cost. Core of this platform is a world-class computer vision software that extracts traffic scenarios from monocular cameras in a highly accurate and fully automated way.
