With Unity, designers and engineers can experience design models and data in a shared visual space, increasing collaboration and iteration speed, resulting in higher-quality designs and products.
The future of automotive design is here today
Visualize designs instantly, iterate on the fly, collaborate across geographies — Unity’s real-time development platform puts 3D data into the hands of those who need it, on the devices of their choice, resulting in a more agile and flexible design process based upon inclusion and data rather than on isolation and guesswork.
The real-time development platform-of-choice
For designers, engineers, and trailblazers across the auto industry, Unity is the most versatile and widely-used real-time 3D creative development platform for visualizing products and building interactive and virtual experiences.
The Unity platform is unmatched in extensibility and ready to be adapted to current and evolving needs with a powerful C# scripting system, comprehensive API and extensive documentation. Source code access can be purchased for under-the-hood C++ development.
With its intuitive UI and tools, Unity makes it easy to jumpstart a working prototype and bypass spending time on low-level programming. Changes are easy and instant through the magic of real-time, making it easier to create and iterate.
Unparalleled Platform Support
Maximize your reach with support for 25+ platforms. Unity partners early and deeply with publishing platforms so you can build once and deploy to Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Tizen, FireOS, as well as to desktop, consoles, and mobile VR.
Unity includes a robust and well-documented API with access to the complete range of Unity systems, including physics, rendering, and communications to enable a rich interaction model and integration with other systems.
Optimal Graphics Performance
Unity’s Scriptable Render Pipeline provides total flexibility for graphics optimization. The HD Render Pipeline offers world-class visual quality on high-performance hardware while the Lightweight Render Pipeline maintains responsive performance when scaling for mobile.
A Massive Catalog of Assets and Tools
The Unity Asset Store gives you access to the largest marketplace of off-the-shelf assets and productivity tools to jumpstart your project. These building blocks cut down on development time to get you up and running and across the finish line faster.
Largest community of real-time creators
Unity Developer is #7 of the top 10 fastest growing jobs in the US according to LinkedIn. With the talent pool centralized on Unity Connect, and a certification program to validate skills against a standard of aptitude, it’s easy to find skilled Unity talent to build your team.
