Metamoto announced it has partnered with AutonomouStuff to expand access to Metamoto’s AV simulation platform, Simulation as a Service. AutonomouStuff will offer subscription service packages of Simulation as a Service to its customers, bringing Metamoto’s technology to OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and sensor manufacturers that would benefit from a means to train, test, debug and validate automated vehicles and technology safely in the virtual world before it hits public roads.

Metamoto’s Simulation as a Service is cloud-based, massively scalable and available now to any stakeholder in the mobility ecosystem. Metamoto’s offering is designed to easily integrate into existing software development processes and is significantly faster than legacy simulation tools. By partnering with AutonomouStuff, Metamoto gains access to a wider network and customer pipeline to boost sales and marketing efforts while helping others achieve autonomy.

AutonomouStuff is a one-stop-shop for companies in the market for a self-driving car – it purchases all of the necessary components through its hardware and software partners, and it assembles AVs for customers. Metamoto will be creating virtual replicas (vehicle simulation models) of the self-driving cars that AutonomouStuff customers can purchase and including them in the Simulation as a Service platform. This will allow AutonomouStuff customers to test their vehicles in the simulation without physically altering their AV for testing purposes in the real world, as well as compare test results from virtual and real-world scenarios.
