Waabi has unveiled a new autonomous vehicle simulator, Waabi World, which aims to help rapidly and safely commercialise self-driving technology.

Waabi World aims to teach the “brain” of self driving vehicles the skills, intuition and instinct that humans use when driving and navigating unexpected obstacles.

These learned skills arguably cannot be gained solely through on-the-road testing, as self-driving vehicles would have to drive millions of miles to learn to drive safely in every possible circumstance. Instead, Waabi World provides an immersive and reactive environment to test, assess and teach autonomous vehicles to drive independently.

Waabi World exposes the vehicle to a variety of situations, including common driving scenarios and safety-critical cases. This process reduces the need to drive testing miles in the real world and offers a safer, more affordable option.

The programme builds digital twins of the world and uses near real-time high-fidelity sensor simulation to test the entire software in an immersive and reactive manner. The Waabi World simulator creates scenarios to stress-test the vehicle and teach the “brain” to learn from mistakes and master the skills of driving without human intervention.

Waabi therefore envisions that this new AI-powered simulator will help manufacturers of self-driving technologies sell their products.
