Test, train, and validate in a real-time 3D virtual world

Unity Simulation is a managed cloud service that enables product developers, researchers, and engineers to easily and efficiently run thousands of instances of parameterized Unity projects in batch in the cloud. 

By developing projects in Unity that represent real-world environments, parameterizing those projects for simulation, and running many simulated scenarios in the cloud faster than real time, you can accelerate your time to insight.

Key benefits

Easy, affordable testing and validation for AI algorithms

Test and validate the effectiveness of your AI algorithms in a virtual capacity, eliminating risks and reducing costs that come from real-world testing.

Fast, cost-effective training for machine learning

Generate pre-labelled synthetic data – at a fraction of the typical time and cost of constructing and capturing real-world data.

Better systems modeling

Efficiently simulate spatial environments across scenarios and over longer timescales than other types of simulation tools to holistically understand large, complex, and uncertain systems.

Zero hardware investment

Pay only for actual cloud usage, without monthly minimums or upfront investment. Because we manage the cloud service, there’s no need to install and manage batch computing software or server clusters that you use to run your jobs, allowing you to focus on analyzing results and solving problems.

How Unity Simulation works

Create your virtual environment

Create a Unity project that represents a real-world environment using Unity Pro, our real-time 3D development platform, or work with our professional services team for project creation.

Configure your Unity project for simulation

Parameterize your Unity project in ways that will change from run to run (e.g., positions or colors of assets, scene layout configurations) and specify simulation output data necessary for your end application.

Run simulations in the cloud

Define your simulation job, get a cost estimate, and execute it on the cloud.

Download output data

Download the data generated from the simulation – whether it’s segmented images for machine learning training or results files for AI or modeled systems – to use in your end application.

Automotive simulations using LG and Unity

An autonomous vehicle must log at least 11 billion miles before it is considered road safe. It would take hundreds of years to reach that goal with real-world driving or running simulations locally.

The LGSVL Simulator takes advantage of several advanced Unity features to simulate photorealistic digital twins of real-world environments with accurate vehicle and sensor models.

With Unity Simulation and the LGSVL Simulator, developers can now train their machine learning models through all scenarios and edge cases in a matter of hours.
