Autonomous Flying Cars Will Be Trained in UNIGINE Virtual Worlds

According to general estimates, autonomous vehicles will become a part of our common landscape by the early 2020s. Big companies and start-ups are involved in the rapid race for flying cars to provide the best solutions.

But one of the main challenges for the autonomous vehicles to be released to the skies is that they must be safe. Searching for a way to ensure safety in various weather and emergency conditions, the founders of the Swiss company Daedalean decided to develop a universal software solution for an advanced autopilot to be used in eVTOLs. For their project, the Daedalean team chose UNIGINE 2 Sim to render test scenarios for computer vision and deep learning components.
