DRIVE Constellation Now Supports CarSim Vehicle Model

NVIDIA’s simulation tools for testing autonomous cars in the virtual world now offer more models for validation. Two key simulation companies — Mechanical Simulation, creator of CarSim and TruckSim, and IPG — are integrating their high-fidelity vehicle models into the NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation platform.

This means that every aspect of driving — from how long it takes the car to brake to how it performs on slippery roads — can be accurately re-created in simulation. The level of detail provided by vehicle models combined with the level of detail for the environment provided by DRIVE Sim makes it possible for these tests to easily translate to real-world results.
