KAN-Do a distributed co-simualtion platform for the development of ADS

Proving the safety of highly complex, automated systems used in Connected and Autonomous Mobility (CAM) domain requires a paradigm shift in current test methodologies to enable more collaboration and synergies among the stakeholders. Virtual testing by use of simulation tools has gained immense popularity in the CAM domain. Although there several simulation tools available in the market the existing tools are extremely fragmented and complex. Distributed co-simulation can be used to derive optimised combinations of simulation tools, leveraging their strengths and attenuating their weaknesses. KAN-Do is a tool-agnostic, distributed co-simulation platform providing a secure, data-centric, end-to-end ADS development framework.
