Robotic simulation

Model, program and simulate robots with Unity.

Robot simulation before solution execution

As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) evolve, we expect robots to execute increasingly complex tasks with complete autonomy to sense the environment, respond to it and to execute actions within it. Robots are common in industrial and commercial settings - for complex assembly picking and packing, last-mile delivery, and more. 

To verify solutions before implementing them in a robot, roboticist and developers need an experimentation platform that accurately mimics  the real- world environment as well as the robot’s physical interactions with that environment. Through simulation, they can evaluate robot performance in terms of localization, motion planning and control. 

Why use Unity?

Create and model highly customizable real- world situations for robot design and simulations.

Accelerate prototyping

More than a million assets on the Asset Store, a user -friendly design and access to content- creation tools help you to speed up your prototyping.

High-fidelity physics

Unity now has PhysX SDK 4 support and features such as TGS solver and a new articulation joint system.

Create complex and realistic environments

Unity offers high visual and sensor fidelity, real-time rendering and ray tracing – all of which are vital for creating photorealistic replicas of the real world.

Easily prototype industrial designs

Unity 2020.1 (beta), has a new Physics component: ArticulationBody. Articulations make it easier than ever to simulate robotic arms and kinematic chains with realistic physics and movement, particularly for industrial applications.

Physics updates in Unity 2019.3

Unity 2019.3 beta brought several updates to PhysX integration in Unity, for improved precision, stability and performance.
