Developing autonomous off-road systems requires the collaboration of multi-disciplinary teams working on different technology domains such as controls, perception, and motion planning. To facilitate this complex process while reducing the risks and costs associated with hardware testing, simulations are critical.
This talk will showcase various scenarios from a construction site to an open pit mine, demonstrating modeling and simulation workflows for autonomous off-road vehicles. Specifically, we will discuss the testing and optimization of autonomous algorithms through co-simulation using robotics simulators and popular game engines. Attendees will gain insight into the different phases involved in an autonomous offroad vehicle development project and understand how an integrated simulation workflow can enhance cross-team collaboration.
