3D Mapping Solutions GmbH

Founded in 2007 and based in Holzkirchen and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania/USA, 3D Mapping Solutions GmbH is one of the leading experts in the fields of high-accuracy kinematic surveying of public roads, proving grounds, race tracks and rough road test tracks of any kind. In addition, the high-end kinematic engineering surveying of railway tunnels or subway networks are core competences.High-precision as built-plans are exported into appropriate formats including all objects, attributes and the complete, complex topological structure and thus may be used directly for customer applications. Examples are the use of high-fidelity maps as in-car reference for autonomous driving developments, simulation for vehicle dynamics development and driving simulation on digital twins of complete road networks.

atlatec GmbH

atlatec is a research-oriented 3D mapping company based in Karlsruhe, Germany. The company creates high fidelity 3D maps with nothing but cameras and GPS. Maps can be used for autonomous driving, for validating ADAS and for use in simulations such as CarMaker, VIRES VTD, CarSim and PreScan.  


cognibit GmbH

cogniBIT is a Tech-Startup based in Munich which enables manufacturers of autonomous vehicles to test in simulation whether their vehicles are safe in the interaction with human road users. Based on neuroscientific and sensorimotor research, cogniBIT develops algorithms that realistically simulate the behaviour of humans in everyday traffic scenarios (e.g. drivers, cyclists, or pedestrians). Their traffic agent models map the entire sensorimotor processing chain from visual perception through cognitive processing in the brain to action. By realistically reproducing human characteristics and limitations (such as a limited field of view, distraction, and different response times), critical traffic situations such as accidents or near accidents can be tested and analysed under realistic conditions. Bringing the human element into traffic simulation, cogniBIT considerably increases the validity of the development and test environment for autonomous vehicles.
