MORAI, which develops full-stack autonomous driving simulation technology, has announced it will unveil MORAI SIM Cloud at next week’s CES 2022. The technology uses the cloud to build a myriad of simulation environments without hardware restrictions, enabling simultaneous testing.
MORAI SIM Cloud is the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model of the company’s existing autonomous driving simulator, MORAI SIM. The cloud version will allow users to perform simulation tests in the cloud without the process of installing any software on local computers The company said the cloud-based method will play a key role in increasing test efficiency as it enables users to run a large number of simulation tests that require multiple computers to run, with a single computer simultaneously. The MORAI SIM Cloud will also offer a test automation feature, which automatically distributes test cases in a cloud environment to perform tests and generate finalized results.
“Based on the cloud-based simulation technology we introduce at CES 2022, MORAI will actively expand domestic and global business opportunities,” said Jiwon Jung, CEO of MORAI. “We will also leverage in-person engagement at this year’s CES as an opportunity to further foster global partnerships and actively engage in sharing autonomous driving simulation technologies.”
The company’s simulation platform in South Korea includes more than 100 clients, including Hyundai Mobis, Naver Labs, and Samsung Engineering. In 2021, the company raised around 2 billion KRW through a bridge funding round, and was nominated as a future unicorn company by the Ministry of Science and ICT of Korea. The company was founded in 2018 as a startup by former KAIST autonomous driving researchers dedicated to creating autonomous driving simulation platforms.
