MORAI, a developer of full-stack autonomous vehicle simulation technology in Korea, has launched MORAI SIM Air, a new simulation platform designed for UAM aircraft and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) to verify the system safety of aircraft in realistic virtual spaces.
MORAI SIM Air simulates every possible flight scenario that may occur in urban area when operating UAM. This new simulation platform enables numerous test flights for scenarios of extreme situations with detailed photorealistic scenes such as complex urban environments and specific flight paths. It provides a realistic, fully configurable, virtual simulation environment for aircraft manufacturers to test their products. With this solution, they can verify the system safety of aircraft, enabling preliminary action to prepare the potential for dangerous situations.
In the future urban environment, a more sophisticated traffic management and control system is required. MORAI SIM Air virtualizes real-world aviation facilities, enabling scenario testing by applying UTM and Air Traffic Management (ATM) in a simulation space. With MORAI SIM Air, UAM and UAVs manufacturers can test various scenarios in a safe and cost-effective manner.
“At MORAI, we believe simulation is the best solution to accelerate the path to commercialization of next-generation air mobility such as UAM” said Jiwon Jung, CEO of MORAI. “We launched MORAI SIM Air to provide a safer and more efficient way for aircraft manufacturers to test and verify their flight systems. MORAI strives to advance our technology so that we can provide the value of simulation to companies in the UAM and drone industries.”
