Microsoft has expanded its artificial intelligence simulator to include autonomous car research. The AirSim (Aerial Informatics and Robotics) system can now be used for testing the safety of vehicle artificial intelligence systems. It is known that Microsoft’s AirSim) is an open source artificial intelligence simulator which enables interfaces to common robotic platforms such as a Robot Operating System (ROS).
Now the technology has been expanded out to providing realistic environment simulations to enable research into how AI autonomous vehicles will behave and operate in the open world. The platform would provide a detailed three-dimensional urban environment that can be varied to allow safety features to be fully tested.
