Cognata Collaborates with Microsoft to Help Mobility Companies Evaluate Sensors for Automated Driving
Cognata announces a new product launch, running on Microsoft Azure, and AMD processors and GPUs, to allow Automotive customers to virtually and efficiently evaluate ADAS/AV sensors through realistic simulation environments. Cognata’s Automated Driving Perception Hub allows sensors to be evaluated versus a common set of industry-standard scenarios, and their performance is quickly and easily analyzed.
Technical complexity and evaluation of sensor placement and performance on vehicles are critical decision factors affecting vehicle development cycles, designed to minimize environmental impact. Cognata’s Automated Driving Perception Hub, where a set of industry-standard models and custom presets can be evaluated in various terrains, times of day, and weather conditions in a photorealistic environment will significantly shorten the sensor evaluation process.

Together with Microsoft, Cognata is accelerating Automaker’s digital transformation on Azure’s global cloud, services, and computing capabilities to accelerate ADAS/AV feature development, verification, and validation.
The unique service synergy between Cognata’s Automated Driving Perception Hub and Azure allows for ease of use, and is available from anywhere, at any given time. With photorealistic environments, on and off-road, scalability, and fast cloud run times, OEMs, Tier 1s, and sensor makers can make informed decisions and reduce pre-production time and costs.
Cognata’s solution requires powerful computing and graphics resources to run and scale. Deployed on Azure, these advanced workloads and features are accelerated by AMD high-performance CPU and GPU technologies, enabling impressive performance and innovation.
