Otta's take on Applied Intuition

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Autonomous vehicles present a lot of challenging problems to engineers, particularly in terms of safety and reliability, but testing and development can be infamously slow. Applied Intuition provides software to run simulations and tests for autonomous vehicles more quickly and effectively, speeding up the development and launch of AVs for multiple industries.

With big companies such as Tesla and Google focused on developing automation, Applied Intuition has the scope to provide the software that makes it a reality. The company’s suite of simulation, validation, and drive log management software supports the safe and rapid deployment of autonomous vehicles, with companies such as Toyota, Nissan, and General Motors relying on Applied Intuition’s solutions.

As the development and deployment of autonomous vehicles accelerates, Applied Intuition is well set to see continued growth, especially as it continuously expands its innovative capabilities. The acquisition of CarSim in 2022 brought a wider range of applications to its offerings, and a partnership with AMBA will allow customers to extensively test potentially dangerous scenarios without real-world driving.
