Design autonomous vehicles, robots and drones in Collimator

Autonomous systems are always-on, always connected, and their designs are never complete. They require Continuous Integration and Continuous Development (CI/CD) just to operate effectively. Today, a typical connected vehicle will generate over 25GB of data per hour. Can your desktop software seamlessly ingest and process 25GB+ of data per hour to retrain your neural networks? Collimator can.

Collimator is a modeling and simulation platform for engineers to design and test complex, mission critical systems in a way that is reliable, secure, fast and intuitive. Collimator provides a unified environment to design, simulate, test, and continuously upgrade autonomous systems in a world where big data is continually used to train neural networks and engineering design continues through the lifecycle of a system. Reduce your risk and bring products to market faster by using Collimator to:

Design autonomous systems using a graphical UI or Python Notebook

Integrate with 3D scenario modeling tools to get a system level view of performance

Use AI and ML tools to generate synthetic data or model autonomous systems

Run millions of test cases using HPC in the cloud before implementing in hardware

Call external libraries and models like Pytorch and Tensorflow directly within Collimator

Compare real-world operation with virtual operations in real-time, continuously

Collimator is by far the best modeling and simulation software that I have used. Using the block diagrams that Collimator provides has allowed me to simplify my code and shift the time I was spending writing convoluted scripts back to my research!
R&D Researcher, Control Systems
Collimator is head and shoulders above the rest. I’ve found modeling to be very easy and straightforward. I’ve also saved a bunch of time and money while running my simulations. The same simulations that would take hours to run on my local PC run in minutes.
Control Systems Engineer, Consumer Electronics
Collimator proved to be the best solution for me because of how easy it was to get data from our back end, use that to create synthetic data, and then move that data into my neural net for training.
Automation Engineer, Technology Startup
It is amazing to use Python, run on a web browser and collaborate on the cloud […] This is undoubtedly 10x better than what I've used before!
GNC Engineer, Aerospace and Defense Manufacturing
